Thank you and a few thoughts

Dear all

Well there we go, over 200% funded within 24 hours. I'm deeply grateful to each and every one of you. I can't wait to get to work on this book.

I'll have to wait a bit, though, as I'm away on a work trip all Easter, and my internet connection may be spotty. I'll still try to keep this updated and respond to any queries as quickly as I can, but do be aware there may be some delays.

I've added a few things to the FAQ page, and also created new reward levels for 4 or 5 copies of the book.

I'll use the next few days to think of some new rewards and stretch goals, but we do still have 29 days to go, so there's some time! The next obvious target will be to get proper distribution, and from some rough back-of-an-envelope maths I reckon I'll need about £16,000 to do that. But once I have a confirmed figure - and the answers to some questions - I'll make a formal announcement.

Please do continue to share and promote this - just because we've reached our target, it doesn't have to stop! The more we raise, the more books I can print. Do let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions for reaching more people who might fall in love with Uncle.

Many thanks again, and I hope you all enjoy Easter,
