I need to raise £550 to cover the printing and promotion of 250 copies of my novella for young adults, set in suburban Essex, 'Who Wants a Rewind?'.
I am a local author, born in Romford, Essex. I graduated in English Literature and Creative Writing from the University of East Anglia, Norwich, some years ago. Since then I've been entertainment editor for UEA's website TSW; completed a script writing course run by Screen East/ Anglia TV; interned at two national dance music magazines, written music and fashion articles for another, and was selected for Talent Lab Media Hub at the University of East London. I have also written a memoir and have poetry published. I currently contribute to 'Wasteland' blog for Romford Contemporary Arts (R-CAP).
I have tried to get the book published via various channels, but the young adult market is notoriously difficult to break. It was also deemed too unstable a financial climate to fund the story.
