The Disappeared

By Amy Lord

It's happening!

Hopefully you had an email earlier this week from Unbound, telling you the good news - The Disappeared is now 100% funded!

I've already shared some rambling thank you posts on social media, but for those backers don't have to put up with me in real life, I wanted to write something here too.

It's taken almost 11 months of crowdfunding to get here, which should feel like a long time, but actually has flown by. It's been a tough process, but I've learned tons from it too and I'm glad I chose this path to publication.

So once again, a huge thank you to everyone who has supported the book. I wouldn't have reached this point without you. You're all amazing!

But there's a still a bit of work to do before you have a copy of the book in your hands (or on your phone if you're a digital backer). The manuscript for The Disappeared will soon be heading over to Unbound, where it will go off to an editor who I'll work with me to get the story in the best shape before it goes to print.

Unbound will keep you up-to-date with the process as we go, so hopefully it won't be too long before publication day and I can start pestering you all for Amazon reviews!
