A memoir on mental health and sexuality that seeks to demystify taboos and inspire.


A story that needs to be shared
I'm Luke Marshall, a 29 year old guy that goofs around on YouTube, blogs heavily, has roughly 4,000 tweets and posts on a forum called Inthemix from time-to-time. You could say I make a lot of online noise.

I'm about to make more
For all my online abandon, there's two things I care about deeply. Mental health and sexuality. I happen to have experience with both, and am writing a book about this called Being Bi-Bi. A cheeky look at bipolar and bisexuality with a serious message.

We've got this
I originally shared my story over three years ago. I started the book a little after that. The book is almost done. It's time to start making the noise. We want this to spread.

►A summary of the story can be found here.
What's a book going to do?
Mine is not a story you can sum up in 140 characters or less. And believe me I've tried. Yet over time I've grown more and more comfortable about sharing what it's like to be bisexual and have bipolar - and in sharing my story with others - it's helped people with their own problems. It's time to do this on a broader scale.


Have you ever tried something big?
I'm not a poster boy. I'm not a shining example. I'm just a guy who needs to share his story and I'm prepared to roll the dice on this. I'm seeking your help to weigh the odds in our favour.
What I intend to do
I need your assistance to help fund this, and more importantly - to make noise.
I'm going to use these funds to go towards the creation of a book (the necessary bits listed below) and anything above this will go towards marketing the book and spreading the message via organisations like Soften the Fck Up .

List of things I'll spend the money on:
• Book cover & Visuals - $200
• Website - $300
• ISBN - $100
• Publishing - up to $30 per book, via Blurb.com
• Marketing & Launch - $1000+
