Primarily nonfiction memoir (includes Mötley Crüe stories). Need help getting authorized & approved. Covers many topics. About this project This is my story. I don’t know if you could say that my book is necessarily about rock n’ roll music specifically, but it’s definitely a crucial part of my story. In my book I stand up for many causes including but not limited to Autism/special needs awareness, teen awareness (mostly having to do with sexuality), and anti-bullying. I do this through exposing my story and writing about my experiences, therefore shedding a light into these topics. In regards to adolescent sexuality, I feel that the resources that are available are biased, they’re not really giving you the full story. What do you typically see? Two teenagers in bed side-by-side, but what about when it’s someone older with them? That’s what they don’t talk about. You know a lot of teenagers have crushes on adults, but did you know that it could in fact be a sexual preference also? In other words, the person afflicted with the attraction to the other person (no matter how young they are) cannot help it. It bothers me when resources that we rely on neglect to talk about things like this, because they’re “taboo.” Throughout my book I also talk a lot about the band Mötley Crüe. Before I can take that final step to publish my book on Amazon, I need to get my book authorized and approved. How I plan on doing this is paying a lump sum of money for a twenty minute meet and greet so I can openly discuss my book (with one of the band members, of course). This part of my book includes fan fiction, personal stories, recounts of social media history, and praise. My goal is to get The Background of Anne authorized and approved so I can sell my eBook on Amazon (or offer it for free). I need to get a release first. Risks and challenges Risks: 1) Obviously the risk is if my project doesn't get authorized and approved. (I need to get a release.) I'll have to redo my book all over again, but I highly doubt this. 2) Vanity publishers like LuLu and IUniverse have a really bad reputation for not fulfilling orders. I haven't put my book into mass production yet. I haven't published it as an eBook on Amazon. The only thing that's available right now is the Jumpshare PDF document on my web site. In short, I am not even certain if I will be able to mass-produce this work as print copies.
