Thanking you all
Hello to my lovely supporters - all 483 of you!
It's such a tough time for so many people right now, which makes me all the more grateful to everyone who has so kindly pledged for 'Game On'.
It was really exciting to reach 100% funding this month - especially as it's such a short space of time since the crowdfunding page was launched. Not only that, but people have carried on supporting the book. I'm a bit blown away by the fact that today it's 122% funded.
Vitatlity (a big sponsor of women's sport in the UK) have also come on board as a supporter of the book, and will be helping me spread the word about Game On and encouraging more women and girls to enjoy sport in their lives.
Now the book is fully funded I am cracking on with completing the manuscript. I have a deadline of the end of August for submission and I'm over a third of the way through the first draft, with six chapters completed.
I'll be coming back to you with regular updates of the whole process in the weeks and months ahead so that you can all be a part of the journey as I complete my first book.
The plan is that Game On will be published in the summer of 2021 - hopefully to coincide with masses of women's sport taking place across the world.
Thank you again for being a part of this special group and helping to bring my book to life.
Take care everyone.
PS - Please feel free to keep spreading the word if you know of other people that might like to support it. They can keep pledging and adding their names to the back of the book for a few more months.
