Work in Progress

By Dan Brotzel, Martin Jenkins, Alex Woolf

A farcical novel-in-emails about an eccentric writers group. They've all got a book in them, unfortunately.

We have 130 backers!!!

Wow! Extraordinary! Our humble project now has 130 backers. That’s more than the number of words I’ve written in the past week! Thanks to every single one of you for your wonderful support. I can feel your collective love flowing through me, giving me strength! You believe in me, so maybe I can start to believe in myself, too!

Alice Knowles


I've just heard: 130 generous people have put their hands in their pockets to support our little venture. What can I say! I know what I’m supposed to say. That it’s been a team effort – and that’s true… up to a point. But you can’t deny that most of this success is down to the two most dynamic and successful members of our group. I’m talking here, of course, about myself and Julia. Okay, maybe Blue supplied the title, and Peter actually put it all together. But me and Julia have given it drive, star power and, in Julia’s case, glamour. We’ve delivered actual fans. And once the book gets funded, I guarantee Jon will be off with his band. Alice will be trying to construct another sentence. Tom will be chatting up a waitress. And it’ll be me and Julia out there doing the dirty work of selling units – that's books to you lay people.
