Unbound sheds light on new way to publish

A publishing venture for the new age was unveiled yesterday in a purpose-built shed at the Hay Festival.  Unbound aims to connect writers with readers in new ways.

The Unbound web site hosts author’s ‘pitches’ for new books and if you like the idea, you can become a sponsor, when the target number of sponsors is reached the deal is done and the author can go ahead and start writing.  There are different levels of support, from simply pledging to buy an ebook through to tickets for the launch party and even lunch with the author. Sponsors also have access to the author’s private area of the website or ‘shed’ where there will be updates on the book’s progress and exclusive interviews.

The beautifully bound, limited edition hardback even comes printed with the sponsors names.  Several authors are already signed up including Terry Jones who is the first off the mark with a sponsor.  You can check out and even support the current projects on the Unbound site.
