Those of you who supported my crowd funding campaign on FundedByMe (FBM) will have received a message recently to say the campaign failed to reach its target and that the money you pledged has been returned to you. To all of you, and those of you who tried but were defeated by FBM’s log-in process (and even to those who thought about supporting the campaign but never actually got around to it), I say “Thank you!”
Now we move on to Plan B.
My new target is to produce the book with the help of one or more commercial sponsors (“your logo on the title page and copies of the book to give as gifts to your employees/customers”). I’ll keep the contact addresses of all the would-be sponsors from the FBM campaign and I’ll collect more as I go along. Everyone whose address I have will get the option to buy a copy of the book (or more copies) when it’s published at a price below the cover price, but I don’t think the rewards from the FBM campaign will be available.
If you did not manage to support the crowd funding campaign but would still like to be on my mailing list for when the book is published, please contact me. Either write a comment here (your e-mail address won’t be published, but I will collect it), or drop me a line using the contact form. I plan a more permanent page for collecting supporters’ addresses in the future.
And you could also show your support by “Liking” the Facebook page, and perhaps sharing the FB page or this page. If you know of a firm that might be interested in sponsoring the publication (we’re talking SEK 30,000+) please give me a contact!
An added complication though is that I will soon be moving to Brussels for a period of time. This website – my daily photoblog – whence all the pictures come for My Gothenburg Days/Dagar i mitt Göteborg – will necessarily go into hibernation. I can’t be sure when the move will take place, but to make it a clean break on-line I shall stop publishing my daily photo at the end of this month. The website and all the photos will remain, but I won’t be adding any new ones – for a time at least.
Support Plan B for My Gothenburg Days/Dagar i mitt Göteborg!
