Pre-order your book now!



Dear followers

The fate of the 52 Suburbs Around the World book is in your hands!

I’ve just hit LAUNCH on the crowd funding site, Pozible, to raise funds to cover the costs of printing and publishing the book.

Please click here to check it out and if you’re keen to make this book happen, pre-order one (two?!) by making a pledge.

I have butterflies doing loops inside me right now – self-publishing and crowd funding is scary I tell you!

But here’s hoping. I happen to have the best blog peeps in the world following me so I reckon we can make this happen.

With love from Coco and I

    I would like to buy a book but do not wish to sign up to Pozible

  2. Joel says:

    I’ve placed my pledge. =)

    I’m just curious, though – why self-published? I remember seeing your first book all over the place, including the UNSW bookshop. Did that not go so well?

    • Louise says:

      Thanks Joel! The first book has sold pretty well but this time I want to see if self-publishing is possible basically – and especially if it’s possible doing it the way I’m hoping to do it, by raising the funds first through a pre-ordering set up. Fingers all crossed…

  3. Joel says:

    Well, you’ve managed almost ten percent in barely ninety minutes, so that’s not a bad start. =)

  4. Jodie says:

    I’m all signed up! Can’t wait!!

  5. Peter McConnochie says:

    If living out of AU can you still buy with the pledge and pay additional postage after?

  6. Peter McConnochie says:

    Hi Louise – forget my comment above – all pledged up and shared on FB to ask friends to support as well :)

    • Louise says:

      Many thanks Peter!

  7. Elowyn Paitson says:

    Hi Louise,
    I want a copy and happy to make a pledge but I’m not comfortable giving my credit card details over Facebook. Is there a PayPal option? I’m super keen but need a better payment method. Thanks.

    • Louise says:

      I’ll see if I can set that up on the site too. Stay tuned!

  8. Jo Horswill says:

    This is a fantastic idea! All the best wishes to you and I look forward to getting my book :)

  9. Neil says:

    Hi Louise,

    In principle yes (i have last book) but don’t wish to pre order until the final book format is clear ie your previous posts re book size etc.

    Cheers and good luck.


    • Louise says:

      That’s absolutely fine but just so you know, the book format has been decided on for certain now – it will definitely be 260mm wide by 240mm deep with a hard cover.

  10. Jackie Nolan says:

    Hi Louise,
    I can do two or three pre-orders for the book.

    • Louise says:

      Jackie, you’re a star! That’s wonderful, thanks so much.

  11. Mary-Anne says:

    Hi Louise – i would love to pre order a book and i’m looking forward to having a copy so i can look at all your beautiful photos again. However, i’m the same as Eldwyn and would prefer not to give my credit card details over facebook. :)

    • Louise says:

      Mary-Anne, I’m not sure why Facebook would be involved – but I’ve just set up a PAYPAL option. So hopefully this will be a better alternative for you? Please let me know if you have any more issues. Many thanks!
