I am over 50%!! Thank you!!
Dear Shed Dwellers,
Yesterday was big day because I reached the 50% mark. That means that I've raised over £6,000 in less than six weeks - and all this for a book which is not (let's face it) about the easiest subject.
Thank you all so, so much. As the pledges come in, I keep thinking that I will e-mail each person personally to thank them. And I do want to do that. But actually I reckon my time is better spent spreading the word further.
However, I am INCREDIBLY GRATEFUL to each and every person who has pledged and to all the wonderful people who have put the word out in so many different ways. Also to Unbound who make all this possible.
You may know that on Monday there was a BBC Panorama Programme on stillbirths. I didn't really feel able to watch it but I do know that it reveals that stillbirths can be cut significantly if you've got the right equipment and you're prepared to spend the money. If my book makes that possible, I'll be so proud.
I was always determined to get this book out there and I know now it is going to happen some how. Just need to keep going .....
