NB:This update originally appeared on crowdfunding website Kickstarter on 2nd April 2013 and was intended for backers of the successful campaign to fund the publication of Finding Arun, my debut novel.
Dearly beloved backers,
There is just one week to go and I can hardly believe that time has flown by so quickly.
I am engrossed in editing (15,000 words done, only another 65,000 odd to go..!), but the task is definitely made easier knowing that once I’m done I will be able to afford the professional edit that this book deserves. That is wholly down to you, so once again thank you for all of your support.
I’ve almost selected an editor and have begun making arrangements for the very exciting launch party, so everything is shaping up nicely and on track for September publication.
Keep sharing the link around if you have a moment; this weekend alone I have caught up with friends who even weren’t aware of the campaign, despite being convinced that I was bordering on spamming with my frequent Facebook updates. Just goes to show that you have to keep at it for the message to reach everyone, so let’s like and share to the bitter end. I know that collectively we can hit that first stretch goal at least.
