Risks and challenges

Kickstarter works on trust. Technically speaking, we could take your money and fly to a beach and spend it on cocktails. But the thing is, we love East London and there are no beaches here. Plus we are passionate about this book and have worked over a year on it. We have run a Kickstarter project before and fulfilled pledges on time an to spec and we have now produced 7 books - so know exactly what we are doing and what is involved. We expect have this book in your hands in October. Thank you.
