Momentum Building + May 11, 2023

Monday, 31 October 2022

It's been quite a whirl-wind few months (in life and in the land of book writing!).  I am excited to tell you about a few developments for Mind the Inclusion Gap and the momentum that is building. 

 

  • Publication date has been set for May 11, 2023.  It feels a long way away, but over the next few months the book will make its way to reviewers, through the distribution channels, and before…

Putting down the pen

Friday, 12 August 2022

Several weeks ago, I received the full development edit on Mind the Inclusion Gap.  It wasn't the first time I've had feedback.  There have been plenty of expert QA's and plenty of friends who gently (and sometimes ever so harshly) guided me towards a better book.  But this was different.  It was the first time a professional in publishing read the book cover to cover with the sole intent of editing…

Here we go!!!

Today, I had the pleasure of turning the book manuscript into the Unbound team to begin the editing process.  86,398 words. 151 pages. 4.5 years of my life writing and re-writing between meetings, at night, and even in the wee hours of the dawn when the need to write was so raw it disrupted my sleep. 

We are by no means done, but today is definitely a pause for celebration in the Levy house!!

We did it!

Today, thanks to all of you, Mind the Inclusion Gap is now a fully funded book. In the coming weeks, I get to turn the manuscript in to the Unbound editing team to begin the final editing sequence, the cover design, and all the intricate pieces which make a book ready for distribution and the wider world.  How bloody exciting!!  

For those of you who know me, you’ll know crowd-funding a book is…

The joy of spring…

Today the sun is shining on London.  It’s meant to be here all week.  This glorious weather is not only making the buds grow and blossoms burst - this delightful weather is making me feel heady too. 

Covid is still here for sure.  It’s never going away.  But life in person is happening again which means I get to be back in the same room with clients and feel the joy and energy of delivering face…

Second Chances

Thursday, 10 February 2022

It’s been some time since I have had the urge to pick up my pen (so to speak) and write either on the book itself or an update to all of the wonderful people who have already chosen to support Mind the Inclusion Gap.  I definitely haven’t had the energy to reach out to anyone new or to engage in social media – that requires too much vulnerability, and my vulnerability has been used up elsewhere. 

COVID, Christmas & Cancellations

Wednesday, 22 December 2021

As I shut down my laptop to take some much needed time off, I am struck by three things; Covid, Christmas and the need to stop calling things ‘cancellations’.

Covid is on my mind not least of which because it’s everywhere.  My family, and myself, are no exception.  I somehow managed to catch COVID19 on either the day of, or the day after my vaccine boost.  It came as a bit of a shock as we arrived…

The confines of masculinity...

Two days in and we are 25% funded.  I cannot thank you all enough for your support in making Mind the Inclusion Gap a reality.  I truly believe that more skills in this space are key to unlocking the future we want and am hopeful that the book can play a role in bridging that skill and confidence gap.

I am feeling very emotional  today – a bit because this crowd-funding thing is very intensive…
