Donkey Burgers Update

Wednesday, 29 November 2017

Hi everyone!

First of all, thanks so much for contributing. It's really meant a lot. Unfortunately this seems to have peaked at 30 backers at over 200 days into the process. Given that it's not going to be going anywhere, I'm going to take this project down and start looking elsewhere and at more traditional publishing.

Thanks so much to everyone who pledged. I've gained a lot of respect for people who manage to do crowdfunding and keep momentum up, but that's not something I can do.

For any questions about refunds, please contact Unbound.

Hi Nick. So sorry you didn’t get enough backers, we were looking forward to reading your experiences it sounded like a really humorous depiction of seeing things slightly differently from the boring norm. My son (another Asbergers MSc) and I loved the title, donkyburgers. Good luck in the future with the book and everything else.

Hello Nick

So sorry to heat that this will not take flight - there will be another chance just round the corner! - your story needs to be heard.

With love and total respect for everything you do and strive for.

Hi Nick.

I only just spotted this book and was about to pledge, then noticed your latest update.
I'm a 'burger as well, and suspect I understand the effort and strength you must have put into getting it this far.
Sorry it didn't take off, and better luck with your next project!
