Progress and a cover!

Wednesday, 10 October 2018

To our wonderful “West of West” supporters, Laura and I haven’t forgotten you. Our publication journey is proving to be more of a marathon than a sprint and we remain so grateful to all of you who have supported our book.


We’ve been busy over the summer months working closely with Unbound’s talented team of designers and are thrilled to announce that we now have a “West of West” cover that…

The hugest thank you to all who have supported West of West. We’ve gone over our target and raised more than £25k. Now we can finalize design and layout and start the journey to the printers. Both Laura and I are delighted and extremely grateful. Thank you so much. I shan’t be tin rattling any more, but the book is still available to buy through the Unbound link and I’ll share publication details…

Another 19% and we can push the book towards the printer. One of the most important factors of this final push to get to our total is getting the project "out there". We are both wary of asking anything more of you since…

Glass HALF full..

I know I promised not to do too many inbox-blocking emails, BUT I couldn't let hitting the half way/ 50% point with our fundraising pass by unremarked upon. This is wonderful news for us and this book, and it's only possible becasue of the generosity and support of all who have pledged. We are both extremely grateful. And touched. 

I hope it isn't too long till we hit the final target and can deliver…

Thank you for your West of West pledge!

Dear friends & supporters of "West of West",

While Laura and I don't want to fill your inbox with too regular updates, we did think that being live a week and having, with your support, reached 28% of our funding target was worthy of a direct thank you. We are both so grateful. 

The coming weeks are crucial to making the book a reality. If you could take the time to let people know that you…
