Howdy Team Kickstarter,
Hope you’re all doing well.
Things were going swimmingly here in Africa. The wedding festivities had subsided and I was cracking on with more editing, when disaster struck yesterday: a power cut blew the power cord for my laptop I’m now completely out of battery and can’t really continue editing until I get back to the UK next week and replace the cable.
It’s incredibly frustrating, but I guess these things happen. I’m staying with my cousin, so I might try to steal some time on his computer (thankfully the book is stored on the cloud!), but it’s looking likely that I will be approximately a week behind on my intended production schedule. Luckily I had built in some extra time for contingency so don’t worry, you will still be receiving your books in September!
Until power is resumed and from a very hot Africa, much love Marisha xxx
