The past five weeks have been revolving around the crowdfunding for my big passion project, the bilingual collection of poetry ‘To Be // Te Zijn’.
Now the crowdfunding has come to an end, and I must confess it is a relief of sorts. Between the crowdfunding campaign, all the writing and translation work, and weekends filled with weddings and anniversaries, there wasn’t much time for breaks. September has been one crazy month!
An unsuccessful crowdfunding campaign does not equal a failure; throughout it, I have had many a delightful conversation about my project, and received lots and lots of positive reactions and encouragement. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – because I simply cannot say it often enough: I am incredibly grateful for all the support I have received throughout this exciting period.
And now, it is time for Plan B, because I am not simply going to give up on my dream of publishing this book. On the contrary!
During the next few weeks, I will be working hard to make sure I can release my book on November 9, 2019 – at a release party, as promised in my campaign.
Keep an eye out for more news on this website and on my social media channels. Many thanks again for your support, and I hope to see you at the release party!
