Not so long I wrote about a most important book, Drawing out the Dragons by James A. Owen. At the time of that writing, the book was only available in digital format. James is now trying to change that. In order to reach a wider audience, he is currently running a Kickstarter project to help fund the print edition. Why is it so important that we help him? Let me share with you some of James’ own words:
This book is, I feel, the most meaningful thing I’ve ever written. It’s the first in a series of three books that I hope will help change your life, and how you choose to live it.
In its pages, I talk about the things that I believe are most important in this life; about things I believe are true, and meaningful, and worth sharing.
I tell stories drawn from my own life: examples about overcoming obstacles and adversity; stories about how making choices in your life is like drawing a Dragon; vignettes about how I came to do what it is that I love most in the world for my job. But most importantly, I tell each and every reader that they can make the same kinds of choices that I did – and that I believe in them.
Sometimes, being told that is the thing that we need most in our lives. And I think it’s the most important thing that I can say to anyone: I believe in you.
The fundraising goal is $8,888.00, which seems like a lot, but stats indicate that 3000 people visit this site each month, and if every one of them supported this project with even one dollar, it would bring James much closer to his goal. And if he reaches that goal, Drawing out the Dragons will reach a wider audience, and more kids (and adults) will experience this treasure for themselves.
The project comes to a close on July 30, so please act now if you can. We at CdF thank you for whatever you can give to this worthy endeavor.
