100% funded!!

Hello friends,

I am absolutely delighted to let you know that we have done it! 100% funded. love lay down beside me and we wept will now definitely be published. I literally couldn't have done it without you and I am so, so grateful for all your support.

The manuscript is very close to being complete but I've a few tweaks to make on one or two newer sections that still have a couple of rough edges. Once they have been done, the full manuscript will be handed over to the editorial team for the next stage in its route to publication.

Thank you to each and every one of you for your support and generosity, from those of you who supported book right at the beginning, to those that came on board during the sticky middle part, all the way through to those who finally got me across the line. I am so happy (and a teensy bit nervous) that this book will be going out into the world.
