Dear pledgers, 

I hope all of you now have your copies of the book - if not please let me know and I'll sort it out. 

A handful of people have now finished reading it and the initial feedback has been very positive, which I am of course thrilled about. 

I cannot stress enough how useful reviews on Amazon are in getting the book noticed, and so am sending you this reminder to share your thoughts…

Long overdue update

Monday, 22 May 2017

Hello lovely Unbounders,

A long overdue update from me. Pimple continues to surge towards publication, despite the best efforts of the universe (my laptop was recently stolen, resulting in a month of lost editing (possibly my fault rather than the universe's for not having backed up)). ANYWAY, I'm currently in stage two of the editorial process. The independent editor who was appointed by Unbound…

The promised land (100%!)

Monday, 20 February 2017

Pimple is now fully funded! My most emphatic thanks to everybody who has supported the campaign, whether via likes, shares or pledges. The book will soon enter into the next phase of its metamorphosis: Unbound's editorial/production process. I'll be spending the coming days/weeks whipping the final manuscript into shape, and will be keeping you all posted. 

Remember (in case anybody asks) that…

100+ supporters!

Thursday, 9 February 2017

Pimple has now topped 100 supporters! The 100% mark looms... Huge thanks once again to all those who have backed the book so far. It means a great deal to me. 

I must admit that my monitoring of the campaign's progress has become borderline obsessive-compulsive. If Unbound has seen a recent surge in web traffic, I claim sole responsibility. I wanted to share another very short snippet and thought…

Half way home!

Pimple is now 50% funded, just a couple of days removed from launch! My most sincere thanks to everyone who has supported the book so far. Remember to keep shouting about the campaign - every little helps! I'm using the hashtag #Pimple on Twitter.

At this, the halfway house, I thought I'd share another brief snippet from the book. The company I work for (AltFi) just moved into a shiny new shared…

The campaign is now live!

Monday, 30 January 2017

Thanks so much to all those who have supported Pimple so far. The campaign is now officially live on Please like, share and spread it around as much as you can! It all counts.

And just to boost excitement levels a touch further, here's a mock-up of how a front and back cover might look (courtesy of Hugo Winn!)...

Progress report!

Thursday, 26 January 2017

Thanks so much to all those who have supported Pimple so far! Nearing 14 per cent funded after 1 day of a soft-launch ain't bad. Excitement levels are high.

I've had a few questions about how much of the book is already written, when it will be finished, etc. So I'd like to clarify that I have in fact completed several drafts of the book. It is currently c. 60,000 words in length. The proceeds…

Welcome (and why I'm using Unbound)

Tuesday, 24 January 2017

Hello, and welcome to the Pimple Shed! I'm pretty new here too, so please bear with me as the content starts to trickle through. I'm so glad you've decided to support Pimple. I'll be sharing lots of snippets and insights from the book here over the next few weeks, but I thought that in my first post I ought to say a little something about why I wanted to use Unbound to bring this book to life. It…
