Up to 97%. Publication date 2 July!

Dear Shed Dwellers,


I am now up to 97%.  Thank you so, so much to everyone who has subscribed.  It is worth mentioning that people can still subscribe once I am past 100% and they will still get their name in the back of the book - although there is a cut off point when that is no longer possible.  You'll get an e-mail warning you of the cut off date.


I went to meet Unbound last week to talk about the book.  The publication date is set for 2 July.  The writing / editing of the book is 98% done and will be completely done in a couple of weeks.  We've agreed broad ideas for a cover and I hope to be able to post something for you to look at soon.


Thank you again to everyone who has helped to make all this possible.
