Life begins at 40 ... %!
OK. I know it's not a great headline but I'm too excited to come up with another. After languishing in the 30s for a while, thrillingly, Note to Boy left 40% eating dust and is now resting (temporarily, of course) at 41%. That's more than two-fifths of the way to publication, people. Or, for those of a more precise mathematical nature, damned near to nudging halfway.
So, yaaaay! And thank you to the 77 lovely people who've shown such faith in the book.
With the subject of older people almost never out of the headlines, the story of elderly diva Eloise couldn't be more topical. But Eloise is no Werther's Original granny with white hair and a twinkly smile. She favours Doc Martens and models her look on Cheryl. Her young life as a 'sixties celeb was a riot and she sees no reason to stop now, just because she's hit her seventies.
Eloise is living (fictional) proof you're never too old to be a bloody nuisance.
If you've been a watcher rather than a pledger until now, how about changing your ways, taking the plunge and clicking on that turqoise button? Eloise will throw a tantrum if you don't.
