Thank you! We did it!
Into the Mouth of the Lion reached 100% crowdfunding on Friday night! Woo-Hoo! The book is going to happen! This is so exciting, after years of work.
Thank you, every single one of you.
Thank you to those who signed up early, showing support for an idea that hadn’t proven itself yet. Thank you to those who pledged for a book, a photograph or a lesson in the middle of the crowdfunding, as there were times when it slowed down and I so appreciated the support.
Thank you to those who told your friends, colleagues and families, and reminded them to pledge. Thank you to those who endorsed me on social media. Thank you to those who reached out from across the world. Thank you to those who have written to me and brought me up to date with news about you and your lives.
And thank you to the old friend of mine, who I haven’t seen in something like 10 years (you know who you are), who became the person whose pledge put us past the finish line.
And thank you, particularly, to those pledgers and future readers who I do not know (yet). I really appreciate you taking a chance on an unknown debut author and an independent publisher called Unbound. I promise we won’t disappoint you.
In due course we will keep you all updated about the progress of the project over the next few months as we enter the production phase. There will be editing, text design, cover design, printing, etc… and it should be a fun ride.
But first, it’s important to pause and just simply be grateful.
We couldn’t do it without you. All one hundred and ninety of you.
All my best wishes,
