A CONSUMMATION DEVOUTLY TO BE WISHED
You lovely people! You've only gone and funded #Sonnets! I'm beyond thrilled that this daft book of mine will now progress to the editorial stage and be published in the New Year. As allergic to sincerity as I am, I'm truly grateful for the support you've shown me. The crowdfunding mountain has, at times, seemed insurmountable, but your kind comments and generous pledges were my Sherpa Tenzing. Genuinely, you guys are the best.
But enough of all that! Here's a celebratory sonnet:
In the weeks to come, I'll share updates on how the book's coming together (hello, Ollie Mann illustrations!) and perhaps the occassional sonnet. The project is still funding, so if you know anyone who might like their name in the back, please do let them know. The more backers this thing has, the more bookshops we'll be able to get it in. Together, we shall spread pentameter across the land. To paraphrase Eminem: "iamb whatever you say iamb".
But for now I'll stop trying to be clever and just say
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
