Thank you to all of you for your continued support and patience! We are all still very busy behind the scenes developing "You Are What You Read" from a computer Word document to a beautiful book. The last couple of weeks have been exciting and I am happy to be able to share with you the latest front cover design created by the brilliant creative team at Unbound!
One Step Closer! You Are What You Read is Entering Pre-Press
Friday, 25 May 2018
It is exciting to see our book slowly being scuplted into existence. We are now enetering the pre-press stage where we get to fiddle with all of the creative detail that will lift my words from my computer to a beautifully bound, well designed and proffesionally edited book. Thank you for making this possible - I am so happy to be sharing this with you all.
Now the fun begins! I shall receive…
And We're Away! The manuscript was handed over this morning!

I so am happy to let you know that our book is one step closer to becoming a reality! I have handed over our book to Unbound this morning and they will begin to work their magic to help get it from my hands to yours! They will be giving us an expected publication date soon so stay tuned!
Whilst scribbling away at the last edits of my book, the team supporting it continues to grow in the most wonderful…

I could not have dreamt this in my wildest dreams, but it is official: WE DID IT! It took just 16 days to fund the entire print run of You Are What You Read. Together with almost 200 of you, we are making this happen!
Thank you so, so much: our book will be made!
If someone had told me we would be here, just two weeks and two days in, I would never have believed it. I knew I had five…
We got to 83% in 2 weeks – now let’s go all the way!

When you start crowdfunding for something as big as the print run of a book, the target amount can see dauntingly big. When you pass the halfway point, you slowly start to believe in what might come next. But when you cross the 80% mark, it really starts to feel real!
After two weeks of non-stop campaigning, I am very pleased to announce that we only have 17% left to raise. But I am even more proud…
One week in and two-thirds of the way there!

If anyone had told me we’d reach two-thirds of our funding target within the first week, I would not have believed them – yet here we are! Thank you so much to all 130 of you for supporting me right from the start. It means so much to me to have so many of you on board! It’s given the campaign such flying start and it is making a real difference!
At the same time of course, I am realistic about…
What a start! Just 1 day in, and we're almost halfway!

Wow, wow, wow! I’d hoped I would be able to write to you with some (fittingly) good news after the first day of campaigning, but I could not have imagined this! Thanks to you pioneering backers, we managed to smash through 45% of the target in the first 24 hours. Together, you’ve pledged over £5,000 towards the first print run! This is beyond my wildest expectations and I can only say a heartfelt…
