WELCOME TO Shawn C. Berry THE WRITER

I'M PUBLISHING A BOOK AND I 

NEED YOUR HELP

FOLLOW THE JOURNEY

I'm thrilled to share that the final manuscript for the book project "The Thread That Pulls on All Things" was delivered to Paper Raven Books on May 9th to begin the editing process. The Paper Raven team will be working with me for the next several months to deliver a professionally edited manuscript ensuring every sentence captures the heart and adventure this story holds including an industry-standard layout procedure in preparation for publication. 

Your Role in This Adventure Story
As a part of my community, I'd love to include you as a crucial character in the greater tale of how the story within this books gets told. Supporting this fundraiser isn't only supporting this book; it supports the launch of an author: Me! After all, I DO have other book outlines ready to go!

So, What's The Book About Anyways?

 "The Thread that Pulls on All Things" tells the story of a group of teen boys guided out into the lower Sierra Nevada wilderness of California on a three day backpacking trip To undertake their first rite of passage initiation. But...why do humans even do this? And why have we done it for thousands and thousands of years? It's an adventure full of philosophical musings, poetic daydreams, and challenging realizations about who we are as individuals in our modern culture and as a species past, present, and future on planet Earth. 

Through the lens of "experiential anthropology," The Thread explores how our most ancient ancestors might have created rites of passages and incorporated their value throughout our oldest cultural histories across ancient time. I'd love for this book to inspire its audience with a story about the value of rites of passage, ancestral lineage, and nature connection. Especially in these times when it's most deeply needed.
