What it takes to write and get a book published

A big thank you to all who have pledged so far to get ‘The Pagoda Tree’ published in the UK. A dear friend of mine told me that crowdfunding can be a rollercoaster. I wasn't sure what to expect but I definitely believe her. Last night, I was amazed at how emotional I felt when I saw more names of supporters on the site. Dear friends, old friends, loving family (thanks Mum!), writers who I’ve mentored, readers who I don’t yet know and complete strangers. We are all unbounders now! It made me think — again — that just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a committed team to write and publish a book. So please continue to spread the word (and the love). More updates to follow. Any questions, please ask.
