Lifelong Bromley fan, Dave Roberts, is currently halfway through writing his fifth book ‘The Long, Long Road to Wembley’.
Roberts has been using crowdfunding in order to help with publishing costs, and to date, he has hit 20% of his set target.
Speaking to the News Shopper this week, Dave spoke on the challenges of the crowdfunding process:
“Having chosen the unbound crowdfunding model, time is split evenly between writing, daytime TV and begging people for money. The latter is something I’m finding really awkward.”
He continued: “Sending emails asking for pledges is just as embarrassing whether it’s to a good friend or a Facebook friend I barely know. The funny thing is that it’s impossible to tell who is going to respond with a pledge.”
“Total strangers have been incredibly generous, while those I was sure would throw in a few quid haven’t even replied. But progress is steady.”
The campaign is ongoing and we will of course keep you updated on anymore developments regarding ‘The Long, Long Road to Wembley’.
