Thanks to all of you amazing peeps - Bad Romance is 16% funded!

So it's been a really exciting few days. Unbound's Katy Guest has been tweeting like mad - explaining that she loves my book so much she even let me set fire to a wedding dress in her own garden... Ariane Sherine - the musical comedian who also contributed the music to my video (wearing a veil below) - has been promising to take her fans out for coffee if they pledge for Bad Romance. Her best friend Graham has been getting the word out on Facebook. The journalist extraordinaire Frances Robinson (on the right, below) turned up to my Valentine's Day party and wrote this awesome paragraph in the Evening Standard (see 'Loving a bad romance': and so many of my lovely friends turned out too. I want to say a special thanks to EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU AMAZING PEOPLE who have helped me get to 16% in three days... THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

Jane Temple put me on to your book. I loved the story I read on the site. I funded a book on Unbound myself. The first third came quick, the second third was really tough and once I got near the finish line pledges came in thick and fast. If you get stuck and need any advice do get in touch.
