My name is Scott Evans and I'm an Irish author, blogger and speaker (despite assertions of some that I'm unemployed and that it's time to get a 'real' job!)
I wrote my first book, 'Closer Still', in 2012 and my second book, 'Beautiful Attitudes', in 2013 and I'm learning that self-publishing is a tricky business. While it does mean that you maintain creative control of your project, it also means that you are quite limited in terms of distribution and promotion. Despite this, however, I've managed to sell about 1400 copies of 'Closer Still' in print and given away over 2,500 copies of 'Beautiful Attitudes' (as it was a free resource I made available on Kindle).
'Closer Still' has 30 reviews on Kindle and an average rating of 4.9/5.0. 'Beautiful Attitudes' has 15 reviews and an average rating of 4.6/5.0.
'Failing From The Front' is an exploration of the insecurities, failures and flaws of biblical leaders and how their humanity should come as a great encouragement to those of us hoping to impact the world. While there are a lot of books available on the practical and methodical processes of leadership and change management etc, 'Failing' is a series of reflections based on the heart and character of leaders like Moses and David and the way in which they can change and challenge us.
The plan is to print 1,000 copies as well as releasing 'Beautiful Attitudes' for the first time in print as a reward on Fund it. The total printing cost will be between €3,000 - €4,000. Hopefully we'll raise €2,000 here on Fund it while I'll find the rest of the funding elsewhere.
I'm really excited about the new book so I would love your support in getting it into people's hands!
NOTE: Your card won't be charged until the Fund it Project is over and only if we manage to reach the target ... So please spread the word if this is something you share my passion about!
ALSO NOTE: I will receive the details of funders a week after the campaign is completed and the rewards will be posted out the following week. Please allow 2-3 weeks from project completion to delivery depending on what part of the world you live in.
Thanks for your support!
