BAGUIO CITY, Philippines, July 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Rico Lamoureux, best known for his blog The Flash Fiction Ponder, is offering his critically-acclaimed autobiography Power of the Pen for free from July 31st to August 4th, exclusively on Amazon. Part of what makes this memoir so compelling are the nearly one hundred colored photos accompanying the story, a layout that wouldn't have been possible with traditional print. And then there's the actual writing, the author's clear talent for storytelling making this captivating life story a real page-turner.

Why free? The author has always wanted to be a father, but recently discovered his wife will likely never be able to conceive. Following such unfortunate news the couple learned of the high cost of surrogacy, or as the author calls it, "the universe putting a steep price tag on the priceless gift of having a child."

With nowhere else to turn Rico followed the modern-day trend of starting a GoFundMe page, titling his campaign Help Me Become A Daddy. The saturated problem of doing so is the fact that over 10,000 GoFundMe campaigns are started every single day, so he knew he'd have to approach it from a unique angle. And for this storyteller there's nothing more unique than his personal journey, with many who have read it comparing him to the likes of Forrest Gump and Benjamin Button. A characterization he's happy to embrace.

"Those are both strong characters who had no choice but to display a great deal of perseverance. I can definitely relate."

And indeed this author has, coming from a childhood of abuse and poverty to facing major back surgery and near blindness starting from his teens and continuing on through adulthood. Just some of the obstacles Rico has overcome in his diverse life, now chronicled in his autobiography.

"I'm a stranger before anything else, I get that," Rico goes on to say. "So my hope is that people will take the time to get to know me through the autobiography, and in so doing become more likely to join this crusade of mine to become a daddy."

All contributors to the author's GoFundMe campaign are invited to join his private Google Plus group, where he'll continue to chronicle his journey through story, photos and video, as a result turning a powerful summer read into something so much more.
