Once I was alone, depressed, and suicidal. One small act of kindness, a cup of coffee bought for me, totally changed my life. Today, I search for opportunities to serve those same acts of kindness and encouragement to people who need it most with my book, or with a simple cup of coffee brewed just for them.

Update #3 - Update #3 - One week left, book for the Holidays, and Caffeine Crawl Columbus! Sept. 6, 2016

Hello friend,
We've made tremendous progress over the last month in bringing Brewing The Way to book shelves everywhere. Here are a few updates for you:

With 1 week remaining, we're 50% of the way there!

That's right - we made it to the halfway point. That's just AWESOME. I am so encouraged by everyone who ordered and supported the campaign. Thank you!


How can we reach the goal, together?

  1. Order as a gift for the Holidays.

    With the campaign wrapping up in just a week, the book will be going to print sometime in October. I am currently estimating a 4-8 week printing process, which gets the book in your hands just in time for the Holidays. 

    Why not order an extra copy or two for friends and family? :)

  2. Buy a second copy, get a free Caffeine Crawl Columbus ticket!

    When you buy two copies of the book through the campaign, I will buy you a Caffeine Crawl Columbus (Sept. 23rd and 24th) ticket to go with it! That's a $28 ticket, absolutely free! 

    If you've already bought two copies, just send me an email (tim@brewtheway.com) and I'll get your ticket to you. Otherwise, order a second copy through the campaign page and you'll be eligible for your ticket as well!

    By the way, I'll also be working at the Caffeine Crawl Indianapolis event in October, so be on the lookout for when those tickets go live at caffeinecrawl.com.

  3. Tell your favorite coffee shop to get it in their stores.

    There are two tiers that are perfect for small coffee shops and cafes. When they support the campaign with $100 or $200, they'll get 5 or 10 copies of the book (respectively) which they can sell in their stores.  If they're close enough to where I live, I'll even come do a book signing in their store to give them a day of promotion!



Thank you all again for your support. It's been a great time campaigning and hearing from all of you. I'm excited for the next steps.

Remember, even if we don't reach the goal, I'm going to be self-publishing. This book IS going to happen, thanks to all of you.

Check out the book's official website and be sure to share with your friends: https://brewingtheway.com/

Cheers!
Tim
