To date, our community has pledged over £3 million to Unbound projects to fund everything from an anthology on race and identity in contemporary Britain to a compilation of terrible old video games you’ve probably never heard of.
Ideas are welcome here.
Unbound creators pursue bold ideas on their own terms – and make an impact on the world, too.
We’re a small, agile team based in the heart of London – and we’re growing.
We’re a team of publishers, writers, editors, designers – you name it – helping people bring their ideas to life. And we take care of the whole process, from manuscript editing to shipping the first editions.
Efficient, transparent and accessible.
Our crowdfunding model shifts the balance of power into your hands, and gives great ideas a way of making their mark on the world. Find a project that you love, and actually help make it happen.
Our best idea? Listening to yours.
At the heart of Unbound is a vibrant community pulling together to make great things happen. Our community suggest features, test prototypes and give us constant feedback so we can make Unbound the best it can possibly be.
“Brilliant… Unbound is trailblazing a new way of getting books to readers.”
“It is Unbound’s direct dialogue between writers and readers which seems to have been missing from the publishing world, until now.”
“Traditional publishing is in the doldrums, it's collapsing. Publishers are looking around for new ways of going forward. I think Unbound could be the future.”
“Of all the bright new shoots the digital world has helped to spring out of the wizened old stump of the book world, Unbound is one of the freshest and brightest”
Pitch your idea to our commissioning editors – if it has the makings of a great book, we’ll launch it on our site.
Tell the world your project is live and start your crowdfunding campaign. Track your pledges and progress in real time through your creator dashboard.
The fun doesn’t stop when you hit 100%. When you’ve reached your target and delivered your manuscript, sell preorders to supporters. Keep your backers in the loop with your Updates feed.
There you have it – your idea, made real. We’ll send a copy to everyone that’s helped along the way.
