Day 53: London and growing pains...

Tuesday, 9 February 2016

It's been a very industrial time over the past few weeks, so much so that I have not had the time to write my blog because I've been too busy raising funds!

I teamed up with fellow writers Jennie Ensor, Phyllis Richardson and Martine McDonagh and we read from our books in front of a small crowd in a pub in Highgate, London. It was a long way for me to go just to read for 20 or so minutes but it was worth it in order to meet up with fellow writers and with the publishers too - who also introduced us.

Since then my book has picked up again and is currently at 41%.

There are so many people who have come forward to show their support and though it is very humbling and difficult to have to ask for money in the current financial climate I am happy to see that there are people who are willing to see this project fulfilled. At times, I have to say, my moods have been one minute up, the next down, and the process is often a painful one, but thanks to your support I am managing to stay afloat!

Thank you to the following for your pledges:
