Starting out on Unbound

This is a new venture and I'm just finding my way around the Unbound site. I'm thrilled to see that just two days in, 22 supporters have pledged, but I didn't know if i could find out who they were. I looked, and it was only a click away (of course). But what I also didn't know, and hadn't anticipated, was how touched I would feel. This business of dealing directly with readers - people who, by pledging, tell you that they want to read your book - is incredibly personal. I suppose it feels that way even more because the book is a memoir, but I think there's more to it than that. What happens to a published book after it goes out into the world is often such a mystery. To have the affirmation of readers before it's published is like a very special gift!
