Dearest Bad Romancers,
A Super Friend called Klaas Jan Runia materialised like Hercules yesterday and (with another exceptionally kind and wonderful individual who shall remain nameless) shoved us up to 95% funded.
Thanks to all those who pledged last night & today we're now at 96% - so we might actually make Bad Romance real within 90 days (we started on Valentine's Day and the 90 days is up on Monday night.) Then I get really old on Tuesday.
In pledge terms we are currently 16.5 hardbacks, 8.4 book bags or 4.7 collages away from 100%. That's 4.9 Bloc ravers, 4.4 heartbroken pyromaniacs, 3.0 hacks who want to get into papers ... Or a partridge in a pear tree.
Extra special thanks and love go to Alex. (We would not be here without her.)
I'll email you Monday in a frenzy of desperation no doubt.
But for now THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
P.S. If anyone knows anyone who might like to pledge for that pitching workshop I helped our Bad Romancer Laura Fulcher get a piece published by the Telegraph yesterday which can be read here:
She is the founder of Mission Remission - a brilliant website she set up to help people like her who are living life after cancer.
Please spread the word about her site and visit it here: https://www.mission-remission.com/ !
