I know, I know: it has been a while since my last update. I’ve missed all you existing pledgends, and I throw open my arms to new supporters that have joined us recently. Then I back away, worried that I was too forward when I threw open my arms just a few seconds ago, then I apologise and you’re basically fine with it, then I just analyse it internally for few days.

 

Where are we?

I…

We pitched live in a pub!

First things first - let’s welcome in the new recruits, shall we? I estimate that there’s now around 85 of you wonderful connoisseurs in our little gang, a touch more than the 80 listed on the site (this is down to pub encounters and in-person donations, mostly). That’s quite a lot of people, really, isn’t it? I think you could conceivably hold an event in the Buffalo Bar in Highbury with 85 people…

Here is an extract from the book

Saturday, 22 July 2017

Hey gang,

I've decided for no particular reason (not because pledging has slowed down, nothing like that...), to post an extract from BDIRR.

All you need to know is that Bobby is addressing a large convention of the American Guild of Variety Artists, at the invitation of his old friend and colleague Volker Kinsale. Everyone in the AGVA hates Bobby, so this is a tricky speech for him. And Bobby…

Are we nearly there yet?

Hi gang,

Let’s take stock, shall we? Last time I sent a message out, we were at 25%. I’m delighted to say that we’ve now sailed past that milestone and, in fact, past the 1/3 milestone too. Milestones are crumbling in our wake and causing a right royal mess for the local trawlers, I can tell you. We are sitting pretty at 35%.  The next milestone, however, is a little way off. 50% seems like the…

We’re at 25%!

We made it to 25% in about 2-and-a-bit weeks. YOU GUYS.

I feel like, now that there’s 45 of us in this weird little club, we can all be honest. So everyone grab a hand. Doesn’t matter if you don’t know the person sitting next to you. Don’t worry if your hand’s a bit clammy. No-one judges in the 45.

This is the first actual milestone: a quarter of the way to being fully funded, a quarter of the…

Week One

Tuesday, 30 May 2017

Hello!

This is an update especially for you, cherished supporters. A brief glimpse behind the stage drapes, if you like.

So, we’re a week into pledging and, thanks to some unbelievably generous donations, we’re at a very healthy 21%. I think I read somewhere in the oodles of blurb that Unbound sent me that if a project gets to 30% within its first month, then chances are it’ll roll along to…
