Download Your Book And A Favour!

Sunday, 22 October 2017

Hi everyone!

We had the launch for 15 Minutes a couple of weeks ago and it was a major success, loads of books were sold and much cake was consumed! In the last few weeks I've met a few lovely pledgers who have had trouble downloading their book, if you are one of these people please go to the following page…

Andy Warhol - Inspiring Us Still

Thursday, 23 February 2017

Andy Warhol died on Feb 22nd 1987. Thirty years on he's still inspiring artists of all kinds, from music videos to fashion designers, to little writers like me. When I was researching this book I found out that he used to misquote the famous for fifteen minutes line at every opportunity, it was as if he couldn't believe that he was more famous for a quote about fame. When asked about it, which he…

From Twitter Tale To Novel

Friday, 7 October 2016

Hi everyone,

It's been a long summer and I've been quietly working behind the scenes. You'll be pleased to know that my collection has been edited, with immensely helpful input from Unbound, and is as a result a much better book. It also has a new title. Gone is the over long full Warhol quote; the book will now be published as Fifteen Minutes. The editing was an interesting process. A lot of the…

Almost There

Thursday, 16 June 2016

At the time of writing I am 91% funded! I am so grateful to all of you for supporting this project. I just wrote the thing - it is you who have made the possibility of publication a reality. There have been a rush of new supporters in the last couple of weeks and if I haven't thanked you personally I'd like to do so now.

When I haven't been marketing this book I have been editing it. I've had to…

Fifteen Minutes of Fame? No Thanks!

Tuesday, 17 May 2016

Dear pledgers,

thank you thank you for your support! The title of this post does not refer to what most people say to me when I ask them to support this book but it could. Instead it is the title of a short film made by Brighton's Latest TV about the project (in my very messy and chaotic house!) Please share this as much as you can. I have about 2 weeks left to fund this project. Thank you again…

Diary Part 6 - Pledgers, Events and The Radio

Tuesday, 12 April 2016

I am half way through! And it’s not been easy I can tell you. I feel like I’ve had to coax each pledge into being. My short story collection In The Future Everyone Will Be World Famous For Fifteen Minutes is so close to 30% funded. Obviously, I need a lot more pledges to reach 100% in the next 6 weeks. I am banking on momentum. Word of mouth, people wearing down in the face of constant bombarment…

My Unbound Diary Part 5

Monday, 4 April 2016

Crowdfunding a book is overwhelming. There is so much marketing to do just to eek out one or two supporters. Unbound (the crowdfunding publisher I have signed to) send you a pledge update once a week so you can see who has pledged and what level they've opted for. Everytime someone pledges I want to shout their name from the rooftops. In fact my book In The Future Everyone Will Be World Famous For…
