Help us reach 100%!!!

Hello lovely people, 

We hope that you're all doing well and staying safe with restrictions in the UK easing. 

A message from Libby:
Hey!! I hope that you're all having a lovely day. It's very sunny here in Newport, so I am hoping to sit in the garden for a little while with a book. Remember to be wearing your spf if you'll be sitting in the sun!! With everything being so chaotic and hectic the past few months, crowdfunding took a bit of a back seat in my life. February 14th was a trauma anniversary date which really knocked me back for the month and with university on top of that my stress levels sky rocketed and I pressed pause on crowdfunding for a few months, but I am feeling a lot more balanced and ready to get back to spreading the word about the book. Thank you so much to everyone who has pledged so far. It's your support that helps remind me to keep going when I feel like giving up on the book, so thank you!! Lots of love, Libby xo

A message from Cara: 
Hey guys, Cara here! Hope you're all doing okay. I imagine there's some mixed feelings about lockdown starting to lift - remember that you can do things at your own pace. I've been super busy what with going back to university in January, so it's been a bit quieter on the crowdfunding front. However myself and Libby (and our lovely writers!) are looking forward to getting back to putting our book out into the world. Thank you to all of you as always for your support, and don't forget to keep sharing the book! We are almost a third of the way there and we're so excited to make it into a reality. Lots of love, Cara xx

We've set ourselves a little goal of hitting 100% funded by the end of this year, which gives us 8 months to raise the remaining 69%!! 
It would mean so much to all of us from the Through the Hourglass team if you guys could help us reach that goal. If each of you that has already pledged could get one other person to pledge, our supporters will double to 458 and theoretically our funding total would also double to 62% funded. How amazing would that be?? So if you can, please share the book and the crowdfunding page with your friends, family, neighbours, work collegues and your cats :) 

Remember, that if you want to show continued support and generousity for the book, you can either upgrade your pledge or donate money!! Just sign into your Unbound account, click 'account' and click on the drop down menu 'manage project' under the 'supported projects' tab. 

Enjoy the sun, stay safe and we'll speak again soon. 

Love Libby, Cara and the writers for Through the Hourglass xx
