Day 83: Something To Crow About...
Thursday, 10 March 2016
Well, I am finally approaching the nailbiting finish line!
It has been extraordinary to be on the receiving end of so much kindness.
Thank you once again to all those who have pledged their support - all 128 of you!
And many of you have been very suppportive in other ways too, sharing my posts and encouraging me too - very much appreciated. And now my wee book has reached 83%!
I have to say, if anyone had asked me three months ago if this was possible I would have given a nervous laugh, but the past three months have given me a new zest for life and a courage that I had left behind somewhere - and I owe that to you, dear readers.
And there is more excitement in the pipeline - I will be meeting with one of my patrons this weekend - Dr Brooke Magnanti, who you may know wrote the well known Belle de Jour books, later made into a television series called The Secret Diary Of A London Call Girl, starring Billie Piper. I will also be meeting for the first time Russell D McLean, who gave me a very helpful critique of this book some two years ago.
The very fact that I am now meeting people of this calibre is so exciting and I have so many plans and ambitions for the future which I will blog about here as the book develops.
However, I still need another 17%! and I only have 8 days now so please, please, please tell everyone about this project and share this post far and wide. This means so much to me and it's been gestating since 1989! Now I finally have a chance to unburden myself and get this haunting story out there - my future is in your hands, so handle with care - and give me something to crow about in a week's time...
Love and Best Wishes,
Below is a list of the latest patrons - thanks again guys - you are amazing!
