My latest book is to be published by Unbound, a specialist crowdfunding publisher. Why not gift a book patronage this Christmas for a truly unique present. Every supporter will have their name listed inside the book.

Giving a book which doesn’t yet exist

The one downside to the gift of a Green Gold book patronage is that the book doesn’t yet exist (remember it’s your support which will make it happen)! To help you give something physical to prove your endearing love, I’ve designed a special gift card that you can print at home. Sized as DL format (A4 paper in width but 1/3 in height), it will be easy to pop into an envelope after filling in the patron’s details and adding a personal message on the back.

Naming your Giftee

Luckily it’s quite easy to gift the Patronage of Green Gold to a loved one so that their name will appear correctly in the book.

  1. Once you’ve created an account on the Unbound website, go ahead and purchase the book.
  2. Navigate to your list of ‘Supported Projects‘.
  3. Look for Green Gold and for the ‘. . .’ on the far right of the pledge details.
  4. Click on the ‘. . .’ and in the small box which appears below select ‘Update the name in the back‘ option, and follow instructions.

See the example below.

And finally

Remember that if you choose a higher pledge level, your giftee may receive a range of further unusual offerings, including an invitation to the book launch, a pack of seeds, their name in the front of the book, or even a dedication on the frontispiece.
