100%!!! Yey!

In all the excitement of watching my numbers creep up last night until I finally achieved 100% and reached my funding target, I completely forgot to update the diary!

Needless to say, I received quite a few facebook and twitter comments and emails to respond to and now have some serious work ahead in perfecting the manuscript ready for publication! (I don't think it'll quite sink in that I am actually going to be a published author until I have a copy of the physical book in my hands!)

I would just like to thank everybody who has pledged their support. Looking down the list of supporters, I am overwhelmed by the sheer number of friends, family and fellow ABCtales writers who have helped me to achieve my lifelong dream. Beside them are others who, although I don't know them yet, I hope very much to meet in future. You are all amazing! Thank you, thank you, thank you! (x100!)

Please do spread the word among everyone you know - there is still time to pledge at all levels and to get your name in the back of the book!

Hi Jenny. I am really pleased for you and just reading your comment and almost living every minute of you waiting for the clock to count down and say you have achieved your goal, it gives way for other brilliant writiers, sadly I am not that gifted to ever be published, this I know. But your story deserved to and I cnanot wait for my book next year, even though I am more a writer than a reader as told to you on ABCtales lol.

Well done xx prettyrose....a.k.a Trish x

Hello All!

Thank you so, so much for supporting my book! It is so exciting to be able to reach out and talk to you through the medium of the shed! I know several people have also bought the launch party level, so I will get to meet you in the flesh, if I haven't already! I really won't believe this is actually happening until I get the actual book in my hands... it really is a dream come true and I am absolutely petrified that you're now all going to actually read it! Here's hoping it lives up to expectations!
