Project Description

Please join me in publishing “Both and All” and help to create art that reflects the queer heroine’s experience of heartbreak and transformation through self-reclaimation.

Pre-order now through Dec 20, 2022 and get the book in time for the shift into 2023. See the rewards and incentives on this campaign and choose anything from a monetary contribution to a customized mini retreat!

This book is a vessel, a sacred container to hold all the shock, grief, pain and anger that accompanies a helpless situation. It also acts as a field guide to helping yourself to the otherside.

“Both and All” now holds the hurt, so I don’t have to. It lives outside of me and can be used to help others find reverence, transformation and representation- particularly for Queer identifying people- who have a made a home and family with someone else.  

PLUS it’s sexy, funny and juicy and ends in VALOR! 

Preorder this first edition, limited release and help me see my courage, dreams and vulnerability all the way through to the finish line!

A demonstration of the complexities of motherhood and loverhood and all of the hardships, sensuality, monotony and joy that comes with it, this book is perfect for women, parents, queer individuals and couples, anyone who has been through a transformational heartbreak, divorce or loss and anyone else who has or hopes to pull through to the other side.

“Both and All” is full written, edited, printed and designed by women, queer individuals and local companies And ONLY needs your support to come true.

Please preorder now and help me share the most important piece of art I’ve ever made - thank you from the bottom of my mended and mending heart!

Both and all,

Sarah Auna, author
