The following is the text of my latest Update on the crowdfunded third novel The Rooms We Never Enter:

Mid-autumn, and we’ve topped the 60% mark, with 58 people pledging to help see The Rooms We Never Enter in print. I thought it would be timely to pen an update. First of all, it was inspiring to meet other Unbound authors at the event at Nottingham Waterstones last month (and to receive a couple of extra generous pledges in the days afterwards). The calibre of authors exceeds even my high expectations. I’m in with an eminent crowd, and the socializing was terrific.

In August, I reported an initial meeting with a Leeds-based literary events organisation about a Pledge Party, to support the book. This was complicated slightly because you’re not supposed to fulfil a pledge before publication, so I could not have a pledge as an entry fee. In any event, with promises that have been made to me, I’m fairly confident that I will reach target over the next few weeks anyway, so plans are now turning to a launch party, in the spring of next year.

Thank you to my 58 amazing supporters. More news soon!
