Carpe Diem Reclaimed – thank you for seizing the day!

Dear Friends

I’m delighted to let you know that the crowdfunding campaign for my new book Carpe Diem Reclaimed has got off to a great start. The support so far has been amazing: over once-third of the target has been reached in under a week, with pledges from around 150 people.

A huge thanks to those of you who have already backed the book. It’s been wonderful to have the support of everyone from old high school friends to some of my favourite writers such as Philip Pullman (who made the first pledge). There’s been some great media coverage too.

If you haven’t yet had a chance to look at it, you can watch the 2 min video and read an extract here. If you like what you see, you can pledge to get a beautiful edition of the book with your name printed in the back. The funds will be used to finance production costs, from editing and proof reading to cover design and printing. The faster the target is reached, the sooner the book will come out. I would be thrilled to have your support.

If you are outside the UK, you can use the promotional code ‘overseas’ to get a discount on postage abroad.

It would also be great if you could share the link with some friends – this really helps spread the word:

Finally, for those of you who are curious why I wrote the book, have a look at this blog post about how an epiphany on the stairs sparked it all off.

Best wishes
