Day 76: Come Fly With Me...

Hello again!

My novel has now reached the funding level of 71%!

It's been a long and arduous journey and I can finally see the end is in sight - two weeks to go!

But it's not over until it's over so please continue to pledge and share this.

A special thank you to all who have started sharing my posts of late in order to spread the word, and thank you for all your kind comments and gestures - it really has been very touching.

A special thank you to actor Sam Heughan who is currently starring in series two of Outlander. Not only did he pledge his support but he tweeted about it and as a result I think many of his followers are now also following me!

All in all I think I'm beginning to relax a little about this whole crowdfunding thing - it's certainly been a learning curve. Not sure if I would want to publish again in this way - but never say never.

So, two weeks to go and I still need many more supporters - please, please help me out!

I can safely say that I have explored every nook and cranny to get support for my book; I've contacted the press, television and radio, done book readings up and down the country, contacted famous actors and writers, sent countless emails, done loads of phone calls, then there's Twitter, Skype, Facebook, book groups. You name it, I've done it!

But sometimes it just takes one person to share this blog in the right direction and boom! It develops wings and takes flight.

It really has been a lifetime's work to get this far - please don't let this book be the dodo of the crime thriller scene - let us help it to grow wings and fly!

Thank you,
