Editorial update and some current events

Tuesday, 15 August 2017

Hello Pledgers!

I want to let you know that THE HOPE AND ANCHOR is currently undergoing some final edits as we prepare for publication. Unbound's top-notch editorial team had some brilliant suggestions that I'm working on implementing in order to make the book as strong as possible. You get only one shot at your debut, so I'm determined to do this properly! When you've been immersed in your manuscript…

Hello everyone! THE HOPE AND ANCHOR hit full funding on Saturday and to say that I'm floored would be the understatement of the year...

Again, a massive THANK YOU for your support. Those of you who know me are well aware just how much this means to me, because I've been going on about writing for years. Those of you I haven't met yet, I'm thrilled you believe in this book and I can't wait for you…

Hello everybody!

I was recently interviewed by David Henry Sterry and Arielle Eckstut, "the Book Doctors," for the Huffington Post. I discussed my long journey to Unbound and some thoughts on publishing. Check it out - I hope the advice to writers is helpful!

Hello! A video message from me on this gorgeous day in New York. Forgive the upspeak, but I'm really that happy, y'know? We hit 50% last night and I'm incredibly grateful to all of you who have pledged. Please help me maintain the momentum and spread the word to anybody you know who might be interested!


I also wanted to share with you a visually-stunning but very gloomy near-elegy for London…

Thank you!

To everybody who has pledged so far, I want to let you know just how grateful I am. This project has been several years in the making and I can't wait to see the final book with all your names in it. To be 28% of the way funded in just five days is thrilling, and I'm hoping I can sustain the momentum! It's also very humbling to see people I've never met pledging a copy. This is the kind of thrill…
