The crowd-funding diaries...

Apparently, YouTube is where today's stars are made. And what are they doing? Singing? Dancing? Writing? No. They're just talking - talking to camera, chatting, waffling, burbling away about whatever takes their fancy. And people love it. Or rather, them. So, in the spirit of the age I thought, 'why not?'. I'd been thinking of doing something to record the progress of my crowd-funding efforts and having made a video as part of the book launch it didn't seem too big a leap to do something similar, a fortnight later (yes, it's now two weeks since the book launched on Unbound!) only this time talking about funding the book, rather than writing it. Anyway, here it is, in the shed. I doubt you'll be able to say you were in on the birth of another YouTube megstar but you can have a laugh, and keep up-to-date with how things are going on the crowd-funding front.
