I’m excited to announce that I have reached my first milestone! I’m very happy to be here after less than two weeks crowdfunding. I have got such a buzz from seeing all your names on my supporter list, old friends, new friends, people I just know from facebook, and a few strangers too. It feels really good to know that many of you are pledging to support this book not just to support a friend, but actually because this topic feel important you.
To tell the truth, I’m an eternal optimist, and looking back to when I signed up to Unbound, I ignored any whispering doubts about reaching 100%. I optimistically thought I’d reach my target within a few months. Then I started speaking to other Unbound author who had been crowdfunding for a year or more, and I started to think that perhaps this would take more time than I’d hoped.
Still, from the postive response I’ve got to the memoir so far I am hopeful that I will make it, and I am learning to be patient, and trust that this book will come out when the time is right.
I am so grateful for you all for getting it together to pledge early in this process, and helping me with my endless anxiety and constant clicking of the ‘refresh’ button to see who’s pledged next!
