There are just 2 days left before our Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for the initial print run of It Never Was You finishes, and we’re still short of the target amount needed to make it happen.
We’re trying to raise funds through Indiegogo for two reasons.
1. We need to secure funds to pay the printers who will run off the first 100 copies of William’s wonderful new book.
2. By asking our friends, family, loyal and new readers to contribute this way, we’re giving them the chance to read the book well ahead of its official release date in April.
It’s a win-win scenario. Everyone who contributes £5 can choose to receive the ebook version of It Never Was You. By contributing £10, you can choose to receive the paperback, hot off the press! I’m expecting the ebooks to be available mid-March, with the paperbacks expected back from the printers late-March. They’ll be sent to contributors the moment they’re ready. They won’t be available to buy until late April.
It Never Was You is a truly epic love story. Set amongst the sprawling Liverpool docks during the Second World War, it continues the saga started in Pegasus Falling, I am certain that it will become a classic, but that will only happen if we can give it the launch it deserves.
How can I make a contribution?
1. Head to http://igg.me/at/cypressbranches/x/2088376
2. Scroll down to the Perks (on the right) and choose either the “It Never Was You advance ebook” (minimum contribution £5) or “It Never Was You paperback” (minimum contribution £10).
3. Enter your details (I’ll need a postal address to send the paperback to) and click on “Check out with PayPal”. You don’t have to have a PayPal account to contribute – click on “Pay with a credit or debit card” when you get to the PayPal checkout and uncheck the box where it asks you to enter log in details.
I’d like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who has or is about to contribute, as well as all the wonderful bloggers, tweeters and Facebook friends who have been busily helping me get the word out about this campaign over the past month. I couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you, all!
