We're making some changes!

Hello friends ☺️, it's been a little minute since I last updated!

I just wanted to touch base with you wonderful people and make sure you are very much IN the loop with what's happening with Don't be a Dick.

First of all a massive thank you for sticking with the project. This couldn't happen without your support and it really is a dream come true for me to have my very own book due out.

It's no secret that I've had a difficult few years. I know a lot of you are already aware of the things I've been going through and I'm especially thankful for all the kindness and support I've received from you during this time.

While life has really been kicking me (and, it really was for an extended period of time), the book simply had to take somewhat of a backseat so that I could cope and then start to heal. Now that I have some more resources to dedicate to this project, I'm working alongside my fabulous commissioning agent Aliya to make this book the absolute best it can be and, hopefully, we'll get it out to you quickly.

Thank you to everyone who has reached out and shared their condolences and support over the last year especially. It's made such a big difference to me to know you're all here.

We're making some changes to the book

Let me tell you that I am SO EXCITED to share some of the changes we're making with you that it's taking everything in me not to just blurt it out, but we have to get the details right in order to make it work so I'm going to hang on just a little bit longer. However, this book is now evolving into something even better than I first imagined and I am actually so happy to get to create it.

Over the coming days you'll see a new blurb appear on site as well as a couple of new rewards that you can pledge to. And Supporters of the book will get an exclusive update - giving you some insight into the upcoming changes to the project and fundraising campaign that you won't get anywhere else.

While the campaign is ongoing, I am working hard to make sure that the content of the book is exactly what it needs to be. While I never meant for the book to take this long, in a way the slow process has allowed me to figure things out so that it can be even better. We're making lemonade here. 

For now, I hope you have a lovely week and that you're all busy out there making sure you're surrounded by the peace you deserve.

Love, Anneli
