The Pagoda Tree

By Claire Scobie

An epic novel set in eighteenth-century India about love, loss and exile, and the fate of individuals when two cultures collide

Wednesday, 1 June 2016

It’s the final countdown!

There are just 4 weeks left to crowdfund my novel, 'The Pagoda Tree'. I've set my target to get fully funded by the end of June. I’m already at 58%, so over halfway -- thanks to all your lovely supporters. Now's the time to spread the word among your friends and book lover networks. When I tell people about Unbound, I like to say that their  exciting new publishing model has a distinguished past. Once known as 'subscription publishing’, in 1688 the first edition of Milton's ‘Paradise Lost’ was published like this and so were books by Samuel Johnson and Voltaire. So nice to be following in illustrious footsteps!

I spent a lot of time in India researching my novel. Here I am at the Taj Mahal earlier this year.
