Carrion, Carried On

“She embarked on a journey to set a world record. In failing, she learned a cruel lesson in nature, politics, wildlife, and perseverance. As she continued the journey through the bitter winter of the north despite not achieving her goal, humanity was her saving grace. In Carrion, Carried On, read the true story of Calleigh Little, the transgender woman who gave up everything to skateboard across the USA.”

car·ri·on: noun. The decaying flesh of dead animals.

This Project was only possible because I ran a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised over its intended goal. After skateboarding across the USA I had endless blog posts, each one about 1,000-2,000 words long. As I was rereading them it dawned on me that it would take me longer to read them all than it would any other book.

Initially the book was just going to be a selfie-roadkill book with some facts and information I learned along the way, but a book full of selfies and roadkill is arguably a tough sell. Adding in my words and designing the pages really brought the project to life. I remember when I was cycling across the country I spent long days debating how I’d design it, or what I wanted to say in my foreword. I must have rewrote it a thousand times.

What’s unique about the book is that I never pitched it, not even once, to a publisher. I wrote the entire thing on my cell phone, edited what I could, and threw it all together with most of the focus going into reliving the experience and figuring out how to share that with my readers. I developed a fairly large following during my journey, and regularly had over a thousand people watching my live streams at any given time. A lot of what I wrote was emotionally charged – from bad days to good days I was in my head the entire time, writing them as I was living them. I didn’t want to put the book on a massive platform so that eventually someday I would end up regretting something I said.

Each book was mailed out with a postcard with a note about things, and inside the book I signed it and left a message. At the time of being unemployed and without a portfolio to get hired, the book was my saving grace from living in North Dakota. Each person who donated was very special to me.
