Help Me Pay for my Voice Artist for Life in Moonlight
I've had to start a Go Fund Me page, I can't believe the state we are now in but here we are. And sorry for posting my troubles here.
So, this is what happened. I was working as a realtor, making money and my husband has a pension for working 23 years for the CIA. We were good. Until our house flooded. The insurance didn't cover the repairs and we paid over 200K dollars ourselves basically bankrupting us and forcing us to abandon the home because it is unlivable because of the mold within the walls and the water seepage in the house Then the real estate market slowed down and I had no income coming in and I tried to get a job as an RN(my former career) But could not get a job. Can you believe it? 20 years of nursing experience and no nibbles. I even applied for a job stocking the shelves at Pet Smart and jobs like that but never got a call. Neither one of us is having luck finding a job. All this said, Way before all this happened, I made a contract with a talented voice actor to turn one of my fiction books into an audio book for $564. It all seemed perfect until the flood and the hellish aftermath. And now I do not have the money to pay him. If I can't pay him, all that time and work is gone and wasted energy. And it will devastate me. Not only because I won't have the audiobook but I will have betrayed someone who has become a friend and I HATE That. I cried when I got his response of a compromise of $264 that I would have to pay by next week and then 100 dollars weekly.I need the money pretty quickly .Like next week. I would be so grateful that I would offer everyone who donated a copy of the audio book if they wanted. And I would send so many hugs and wishes of prosperity and love into the universe for them as well.
