Hi there. My name's Pedro and I'm from Venezuela.
I started writing books in 2010 as a distraction after my grandmother died two weeks before I started University. What started as a distraction soon became a passion and a life-long dream of writing books. With boiling ideas and my first work, I opened the door to writing.
However, as I finished my first project in Spanish by 2012, I started finding a few odds that were out of common.

Yeah. I'm aware of the odds of a self-published author and I accept them, but the odds I'm talking about are a bit out of that spectrum.
You see, the situation in my country; Venezuela, is not new. By 2012, printing houses had started having problems with finding paper and ink at accessible prices. This resulted in many of them either closing or leaving the country. As the problem progressed, it became harder and harder to publish a book in my country, especially from a genre that is not that common around here.

I decided to resort to publishing outside of the country, but there were two main problems for that. 1) My book was in Spanish and most self-publishing options would not be of much help in that language.
With time and after several attempts, I rewrote my first book in English. So that first problem was finished. Now here comes problem number two.
2) Funds: The inflationary rates in my country make it almost impossible to save any money, so I haven't been able to properly invest in all the required steps for a good and productive release of my books.

I am currently writing my third book in English. And I don't want it to suffer the same fate of the last two. For that reason, I decided to resort to Patreon in hopes to crowdfund this project and give my next book a better chance by paying for a good cover designer, a copy editor and the proper publicity and distribution of both digital and printed copies.

Small advertising kit
I have plenty of ideas to spread the word. But most of these ideas require money, banners, cards, shirts. The idea is to have a small kit that could be displayed in a convention
