Christmas came early!
Happy news, EBOLOWA made the target last night (with one more pledge winging its way from France) so this is a VERY BIG thanks to all you wonderful supporters. Crowd funding for a book isn't the smoothest process and I am very grateful to you all on two counts: getting the money together, really fantastic, but also for taking the sting out of it. I hope you will take a moment over Christmas to raise a glass or share a moment of reflection to congratulate yourselves on a great job done - - and of course to celebrate our success. It will make the holiday all the more special - - an opportunity for me to relax in the realisation that EBOLOWA will surely see the light of day in the spring and that in the weeks ahead I have a final chance to make the book as close to perfect as I can. I owe that much to myself and all the people who have helped along the way with encouragement and criticism - - and now to all of you one hundred and one family and friends for your enormous generosity. It means that the first step into 2017 can be taken with a bounce of enthusiasm. THANK YOU.
