Synopsis

My Book ’Living for a Higher Purpose’ has a great plot & gets 20 thousand hits for a month on YouTube. It is the story of a little boy named Viet who survived the Viet Nam War & its aftermath. He tried to search for his life meaning amidst the devastation & consequences of the War. He looked for it in family, friends, religion, charity, compassion, etc. He suffered under an oppressing Communist regime & decided to sneak out of the country. He was shot at, imprisoned, and tortured for failed attempts. In his last attempt, he had to face death due to violent storms, pirates, hunger, thirst, cannibalism, etc. before being rescued by a South Korean ship & taken to Singapore. He stayed in a refugee camp there & then had to deal with lots of challenges in America such as language, culture, loneliness, family separation, economic hardship, & especially his life purpose. He chose to become a priest & bring Good News to the broken & the lost. The story gives its readers hope & salvation.

I opt to select the Voting Model, assuming that I will reach 1000 votes from book fans in 90 days. If my project reaches the voting goal, it is also shortlisted for further investors and producers selection. Other than that, I do not know much about this new & exciting way of promoting a book & getting it to our readers. However, I do appreciate your help and support, especially for giving me the opportunity to share my unique story/book with the world of readers.

“Viet’s story is a remarkable one, and it will be impossible for readers not to be gripped by his relentless perseverance. … a historically fascinating peek into postwar Vietnam … A powerful story of overcoming adversity and finding religion.” Kirkus Reviews

The story is told from the perspective of its central character, a young boy named Viet, about the things he witnessed throughout the war and the life he lived under the Communist regime. The story does not just deal with Viet carving out an existence in Viet Nam. Readers will also get to be in the same boat as Viet as he struggles to build a new life away from his troubled homeland.

“Living for a Higher Purpose” is a book that is recommended for everyone. The difficult situations Viet found himself in are relatable and parallel to the struggles of the modern readers, and the triumph and new sense of purpose that Viet gained will also be something readers will relate to.
