GB Banks has Osteogenesis Imperfecta, also known as “Brittle Bone Disease”. He’s had it all of his life, yet it hasn’t stopped him from having big dreams, the biggest of which is to become a successful author. And now he is using the popular crowdfunding website Indiegogo to raise funds to promote his soon to be released novel, Revolution Z, described by Banks as a zombie war thriller. The story involves a government plot that leads to the resurrection of President George Washington to lead an army invincible of cloned zombie soldiers. But when the President realizes nefarious plans of this government led by corrupt leaders, he instead leads the army on an assault on Washington, DC.
When asked what the funds raised from his campaign are for, Banks replied: “If this book is successful, it could be life changing for me. I live on a fixed income, and I need money to help promote the book properly. I also have to have full time assistance, and I hope to be able to hire a private nurse to travel with me whenever I need to attend book conventions and other promotional events. I want yo build a more independent life for myself so that I can not only get out and explore the world I’ve mostly only seen through my imagination, and I also to give back to my parents for all that they’ve done for me my whole life.
