So, basically, I was totally burning the handle at both ends. While it would be a lie to say I enjoyed writing a book, writing a book kinda sucks, I was very excited for the final bit of it. The actual book part.
The idea had been to release the book just in time for Christmas. Think it was around October, if I recall correctly, that we got the news that the man, who ran the publishing agency, that he had actually passed away. Any books that were due to go out that Christmas weren't happening. When I announced the book first, I'd put up a video on my channel of me calling my dad with the good news.
So, when I received this news, I had to go then and I created another video where I called my dad with the bad news. So, you know my book was meant to be out next month. I just got word back that they're actually closing down the company. - [Clare's Dad] Okay. Alright. So, that's it. No book. (laughs) I remember on that video, I got a few comments being like "Typical Clis-sare. Making it all about you." Yeah. Typical. Every time my publisher has died, I've made it all about me. Fast forward to 2018, I've sat on this book for like, a year and a half. A short enough time ago, I think it was only two months ago, a man named Phil from a company called Unbound got in touch with me. I'm probably going to explain this wrong. Unbound is like a company in the UK and they make books.
And they're like a crowd-funding website for books. I should work in marketing. Basically, I am going to attempt to launch a crowd-funding campaign for my book. I'd like a coffee table hardback that, for each activity, has color photos, which is one of the more expensive books that you can make. We've set up an Unbound crowd-funding page. It works very like Kickstarter, so, you know, if you pledge this much, you will get the product, et cetera, et cetera. I know that there were a couple of hundred people that did want to see this book become a reality, because they signed up to the mailing list for updates. Here's the update. It is happening. It's happening by a crowd-funding.
I really, really hope that we can make this happen. Worse case scenario, we don't hit the crowd-funding goal and everybody gets refunded. So, why not give it a shot? Piss in the wind and see what blows back. Ewww! The link to my Unbound page, that's very hard to say, is down in the, blagh, is down in the description. The link to my Unbound page is down in the description. Please check it out. If you can at all, please pledge. If you just wanna support the book, but you don't want a copy of it, we do have a one euro tier. Tiers that, you know, you get signed copies of the book, or you get two copies of the book, or you get an all deal book, or you get, you know, an e-book. It will happen in all forms in for all senses, if we hit our targets. I wanna say a quick "thank you" to everyone who has really supported the new type of content that I'm putting out, and I'm really enjoying making it. I'm really enjoying being on YouTube again. Another poll to see what you want to see next week. Please subscribe to my channel. Thank you very much for watching, and I'll see you in the next one.
Okay. Bye. Bye-bye. Bye. Bye-bye. Bye. Bye. (bright pop music) by the way, there's a good chance that I may have forgotten information in this video. If I've forgotten any important information, it'll be in the first comment, pinned down below. I am pro- fessional like that. Okay, bye.
