Word Spreading

Thursday, 25 August 2016

Dear all,

It is only when you release a book that you overly reflect on the reading habits of those around you. Why are they taking so long? Do they hate it? Have I made a big mistake with my life? I thought to myself the day after The Serendipity Foundation’s release. It seems that people actually had lives to lead and had not booked annual leave specifically to read the book in one sitting.

Here they come...

Dear all,

I apologise for my silence (or for breaking it, depending on your perspective). However, after a few issues with the warehouse, the time is nearly upon us to let this novel out into the world. As this message is uploading, I will be handwriting the last of the personalized haikus into books in a style that I hope is the right side of legible. Your limited editions should be in the post…

Hello again.

At the end of the week we are officially giving the big boned singer a 5-minute warning. It is time to finalise the list of names in the back of the book. If you have any friends who intended to buy a copy, or if you fancy upgrading to a higher pledge level, now is the time. Of course, this warning is a process- if you are reading this shed post, you are one of those who made this…

Dear Friends,

My apologies upfront for the considerable time that has passed since I last gave an update. Although I realise: one benefactor’s feeling of being neglected is another benefactor’s welcome release from being emailed by the pesky author.

Potato potato.

However, we are now entering into the business end of the process, and there are real, tangible things to report.

When unable…

The Invention of Much Needed Stationery

Dearest Shed,

Apologies for my recent absence. It may appear that I was all touchy-feely with my shed until I was funded, and then I abandoned you. But let’s face it: it’s damn hot outside, and it’s no weather to be sat in a shed.

In part this has been because I am soon to be married. Yes, I just played that card. Part of the joy/ relief of being fully funded is that I don’t have to have a laptop…

The Shed

Monday, 1 June 2015

Hello, and welcome to my ‘shed’. It’s a lot more crowded in here than it was when I first broadcast five days ago. You are all most incredibly welcome.

What have our newest arrivals missed? Well, we concluded that you have all funded a book that can be classed already (in the most tenuous way yet ventured) as an international best seller. We also discovered that funding percentage 29 hung around…

And we're off

Wednesday, 27 May 2015

Well this has gone rather well so far. We’re almost half way, less than 48 hours in. But man, I’ve felt these hours. I’ve spent more time on social media collectively in two days than the rest of my life. I’ve got angry with the percentage marker at the top of the funding page for its refusal to grow. It should be innocent in this process, merely reflecting what has been pledged, but Unbound have…
