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. If you have someone in mind, then please could you fill in this google form - https://goo.gl/forms/mrLAvoUCvSlGOlhg1. Any problems with this, then please contact Georgia Odd at Unbound at email@example.com and let her know. Hopefully there will be space for 2/3 lines per person. The deadline for any response will be Thursday 2nd March, as that is when the book is being sent off for second proofs.
In the meantime, I have been busy reading the first proofs of A Mighty Boy, tweaking the grammar and punctuation, and spotting any spelling mistakes. It is a double-edged sword though - it is wonderful to see the book laid out in its final form but, at the same time, slightly nerve-wracking that this is the last time for any real changes. I have included a picture of the cover to whet your appetites...
You should have received an e-mail from Unbound asking you to confirm the name you wish to appear in the back of the book. Please check carefully that they have this correct, as it will be harder to change it later.
Finally, the subscribers list will also be closed on March 2nd. This means that although people will still be able to buy the book ahead of publication via the Unbound website, they will no longer be able to have their name written in the back – so if there is anyone you know who might still be interested then don’t forget to give them a nudge.
Thanks for your support as always.
