Mightboy royalhb special printready copy

Dear Endlessly Patient Subscribers

I just wanted to let you know that A Mighty Boy went to print at the end of May. It has been a long process but I think the finished book will look fantastic - I have included a sneak preview of the cover of the Special Edition - and the end papers are beautiful - the team at Unbound have done a wonderful job. 

I hope that it will land on your doorsteps in…

Dear Subscribers

I mentioned in my original campaign that there would be an In Memoriam page at the end of the book for anybody who wanted to add the name of a loved one who has died of a brain tumour.

However, all those who have pledged will recieve their…

I can't believe we have done it - fully funded in just under two weeks - truly amazing! Thank you to everyone who has come along for the ride - thanks to you A Mighty Boy is going to be published and in the shops.....!

It is a strange feeling. My eldest son, Oscar, asked me why I wasn't celebrating last night after we hit the 100% mark and the page lit up red. I tried to explain that although it…

What can I say?

I have been blown away by the support for the book so far - 50% funded in just over two days. It has been a whirlwind! I only saw the video for the first time at the weekend and my feet have barely touched the ground since, although I notice the cat has still managed to cling on to a place on my lap!

If Silas was here, I know he would be craning his neck over my shoulder, his…
