I’m crowdfunding my new book Carpe Diem Reclaimed with the lovely and rather funky publisher Unbound – in just two weeks it’s already reached 55% of the target, so big thanks to everyone who has backed it.
One of the best things about crowdfunding is the crowd bit: it’s not every day that an author gets to know a book’s readers before the book is even finished. And it’s a great source of ideas. Last week I posted the following message on Facebook and Twitter:
The responses came flooding in. Here’s a small selection:
Suddenly I realised how many fantastic seize-the-day songs were out there – and many of them I’d never heard of! And it gave me an idea. Why not crowdsource a Top 10 Carpe Diem playlist, which can be part of the book itself?
So please let me know here: What song makes you seize the day? Add your answer as a comment below.
If we can create a really strong list, I’ll make sure it gets printed in the book.
Here’s to the power of the crowd.
