We did it...Kayak The Kwanza is being published!

Tuesday, 17 July 2018

Hello to all our supporters. I have just returned to Europe after a month of travelling around Angola. It is great to see how rapidly the country is developing under their new president. There was a palpable feeling of optimism throughout the country. In that spirit, this is a quick note to say thank you to all 80 of our backers. We hit 100% funded a few days ago with a record 11 pledges this week! The book will now move onto the editorial and production process.

The big question now is: how long until you get your book? I don't have a precise answer, but the Unbound FAQ page notes that "Once a book reaches 100% funding, and once the author has handed in their manuscript, the production process will begin. This process usually takes between 10 months - 1 year. This may seem a lengthy period of time, but is to ensure that the book is of the highest possible quality."

I will speak to the folks at Unbound and let you know more specific information when I have it. Cannot wait to get the story out there! Thanks again for supporting us, and supporting The HALO Trust in their mission to make Angola landmine-free by 2025.

P.S. Here is a photo of a tank from my travels in Angola this June. Still quite a common sight in the interior of the country:
