Slow and steady wins the race*
Not so much Usain Bolt as Shinzo Kanakuri. You must know him! You don’t? He’s the man who holds the record for the world’s slowest Olympic marathon. (More than 54 years, since you ask. Even I might do better than that. If I had the wind behind me.) To get back to the matter in hand, progress on Note to Boy is slow but steady. I’m pleased to report that Note to Boy is now 57% funded.
I have a few tricks up my sleeve that I hope will result in a pledge or two in coming weeks. Added to that, in early October I’ll be taking part in a Unbound Authors event at Waterstones in Nottingham. Hoping the good folk of that city will respond appropriately to meeting me in the flesh. Perhaps I should reword that!
So, if you have pledged already, thank you. If you haven’t, what’s your excuse? Together, we will get there. I certainly don’t intend to be the Shinzo Kanakuri of crowdfunding.
Please social media the heck out of this. Thank you.
*PS Believing this sort of nonsense is why I was never any good at athletics.
