Anyone need help? Plus our progress

Friday, 11 October 2019

Hey - a quick update! After submitting our final manuscript, we've just reviewed and acted on our first round of edits from the Unbound team so we're making good progress and were really pleased with the feedback and suggestions.

We also wanted to say again as the book might not be out for a few months if anyone needs help now or has questions they want answering please do contact ella@bereadytoparent…

94%! - one last push aka the Ring of Fire

Wednesday, 26 June 2019

And here we are, thanks to our wonderful backers - and some awesome new pledgers this week -  we're now at 94% so one last big push and our book will be out (resisting extending that metaphor too far for Ella's sake) and ready for…

THANK YOU for getting us so far - still over 100 pledges to go!

Thursday, 4 April 2019

Thank you all SO much! We’re so close to being over the hump of 50% of our book funded in such a short space of time and over a hundred pledgers! Please keep pledging (or topping up your pledges) and sharing the URL - Facebook seems to work especially well for us and it will help us get the book out sooner to the parents who really need the book! Remember 10% of our profits go to Homestart, and there…

Nearly at 40% after just over a week and more gift pledges!

Thursday, 21 March 2019

Being at nearly 40% after one week is so heartening for us after all the hours of work for this labour of love so a massive thank you to all those who have already pledged.

For new and early pledgers, also worth noting we have some great new gift pledge levels which we're delighted have already been taken up, which means we can pass on our knowledge and experience either to people you know, or…
