NAIWE member April Michelle Davis has opened a crowdfunding campaign to support the publishing costs of her latest book, A Princess in Disguise. Originally written almost 20 years ago, A Princess in Disguise is a coming-of-age story about a princess being forced to marry a complete stranger whom her father has chosen. She is on a mental journey, which she decides to turn into a physical odyssey as well. She is searching for who she is, who she wants to become, and for her absent mother.
Like many young girls, April Michelle wanted to be a princess when she was growing up. While watching TV shows and movies, she noticed that the princesses often had no mothers present. April Michelle wrote this book to answer the question of where the mothers are and show the struggles that princesses can face.
April Michelle wrote this book in the height of her fascination with princesses. Since then, she has become a queen, married a king, and bore a prince. This book was her first literary love, and now she is ready to share it with the world. Davis is the coordinator for the Virginia chapter of the Editorial Freelancers Association, the Social Media Marketing Expert for the National Association for Independent Writers and Editors and a lifetime member of the American Copy Editors Society.
Beginning this month, April Michelle and Iguana Books (her publisher) are running a crowdfunding campaign to help cover the book publishing costs. Awards for donating to the campaign include a signed print of the book’s cover art, a ebook version of the book, and a signed copy of the limited-edition printing of the book.
