Gerald Butler is an artist with potential but he lacks ambition. His past has been less than ideal and he is struggling to be accepted amongst his peers and even more so by his family.
He has very vivid dreams of an incomprehensible future where he is happy in love with a mysterious woman that appears to him when he is feeling considerably worthless to encourage him to confront his demons and become worthy of her love.
His daily life and its challenges have turned Gerald into an introverted coward and as the days and weeks unravel he becomes less and less capable of functioning in society.
But you just can't help but root for this unconventional protagonist in emotional limbo. Can he become worthy of his potential or will his anti-social behaviour manage to overcome his life's true path to lead a fulfilling adult life?
The money raised will be used to print 100 copies of the novella, Endangered Souls. The novella will be sold online and posted out to Funditeers and future customers. The budget will help cover printing, online distribution and post of the book if successful. Any online promotion will also be financed by the money raised by the Fund it campaign.
Endangered Souls is the fourth book to be released by The Project Syndrome, a Creative Arts Company with a wide range of expressions from literature, short stories to poetry, music, documentary, fine art, photography to film making. I have successfully raised money for two books of poetry, Captivate Renaissance and A Nomadic Exchange. I also released a novel, The Death of a Socialite, all three projects funded exclusively on Fundit.ie. I have very loyal and generous Funditeers who have seen three successful projects through to the target and they have encouraged me to keep going with Fund it.
The challenges for me to succeed in this project are that it may not sell as well as I hope. In order for me to sell the 100 copies and keep printing more in the future I will need to promote the novella by organising events and public appearances.
I am crowdfunding for this project in order to cover the cost of printing 100 copies of the novella, Endangered Souls that I plan to sell online. I have no other source of funding, this is a novella (a short novel) so the printing costs are very low but I feel this is an important story, well told, that will resonate with my loyal fan base who have been with me since day one.
I would like to thank you for considering my project and for aiding the printing and promotion of something that I am very proud of writing and sincerely wish to get into the hands of as many readers as possible. Thank you for taking the time to read this!
