The more we change, the more we stay the same...or do we?
Before I get to the point of this important update, I want to reiterate how incredibly thankful I am to all of you - knowing you are interested in reading my crazy story is genuinely humbling, terrifying and fabulous in equal measure!
Many of you will know I’ve been trying very hard to find those elusive potential ‘Patron’ pledges that would take a gert big bite out of my percentage total - well, my lovely Editor, Katy threw an idea my way that would see a real, page turning (I hope!) BOOK in your hands a darn sight sooner ... the thing is, it would mean a ‘conversion’ from hardback to paperback.
To be honest, after 9 months of campaigning, I really just want to get my ‘baby’ out there and this will certainly expedite the process!
So here’s the nub - I hope that you’ll be happy to keep your existing pledges intact. It sounds cheeky I know, BUT, if things remain as they are (although you’re of course entitled to either a full refund or a £5 reduction if you’re okay with a paperback/ebook) then any ‘excess’ can be used against the cost of specialist PR/media or towards pre-existing costs such as legal read-through, structural editing, proofreading etc.
I hope you’ll understand why I’ve decided to opt for this route - the ‘package’ of the story is now less important (to me at any rate) than actually getting it out there!
Katy will be in touch shortly to advise anyone wanting any/all monies refunded, but whatever your choice, THANK YOU!’
