Struggling to make ends meet? Finding it difficult to juggle your daytime job and writing the next bestseller? Well then, there just may be a solution. Ubound.com is a crowdfunding site with a difference. It was set up specifically to help authors and readers connect. The purpose being, that the authors can pitch their ideas and get their projects funded. From pitching your book to production, they’re there to guide you through the whole process – cover to cover. To date the UBound community of book lovers has astonishingly pledged over £2 million, and fully funded over 60% of projects. Check out how it works here.
So, how does it work?
First, the author pitches an idea
Unbound allows you to listen to authors' ideas for what they'd like to write before they even start. If you like their idea, you can pledge to support it. If we hit the target number of supporters, the author can go ahead and start writing.
If you like it you can make a pledge
There are several levels of support, each with different rewards. The higher your pledge, the greater the rewards you'll receive, from your name in the back of the book to lunch with the author.
From there, you stay up to date
As soon as you make a pledge to support an Unbound project you gain access to the author's private area, or 'shed'. Here you can get updates on the book's progress.
And then you get the book
After the book is written, designed, edited and printed, we send it to you, either as an ebook or a limited edition hardback or paperback.
For the first time, you will be able to hold in your hands a book that wouldn't have existed without you.
