About this project

Based on Ingrid Stone's popular blog www.lettersofadissatisfiedwoman.com Letters Of A Dissatisfied Woman adds a little glamour to the fine art of complaining

It is beautifully illustrated by Tim Watkins, who has created artwork for everyone - from Gorillaz and Kate Moss to Agent Provocateur.

The Dissatisfied Woman is a lady of letters with a difference. She believes that complaining should be done with style, with etiquette, with panache.

She wrote her first complaint letter at the age of eight and over the years has complained about everything from can-openers that should be renamed can’t-openers to cocoa powder that tastes like bad breath.

Over the years, she has complained (and shall continue to complain) and has received various compensations, including free flights and a stay at a four-star hotel.

Every letter is genuine.

With your support, more illustrations to the letters can be created, more publicity generated and more books printed. It will also go towards typesetting, promotional material and shipping costs.

In the words of that well-known supermarket - "every little helps".

Thank you x

Risks and challenges

I would have gone down the more 'traditional' route in order to get this book published. I had a literary agent - a nice man, but not so great when it came to time management. After two, what felt like - wasted years, I decided to leave him and do it myself.

The book is already written and many of the illustrations have been produced.

I am aiming to have the book ready to launch November 2013 in time for the Christmas market so that the books - along with any pen rewards, are sent to you at the beginning of December 2013.

Rewards that require ghostwriting will take longer to process and therefore fulfilled up to 28 days after information / back-story details have been provided by you.

Book printing and typesetting takes time - as do illustrations and acquiring an ISBN for the book.

Other possible delays might involve the shipping of your book - for example, if there are any postal strikes.

I hope you understand and will be patient with me during this process.

Many thanks
Ingrid Stone
