I have launched a crowdfunding campaign for the English version of my novel Wall to Wall: the Art of Moving On, for two reasons. First, because the book is relevant today. The path for a book to go through the publishers first in the home country, then to get invested into as a product for the international market, takes years, and besides it is less likely for a first-book author. Second, I believe in the power of audience and authors, Gatekeepers do play an important role in the pre-selection process, but I did not eliminate quality-check from the process: the original Hungarian version of the book has been proofread, and rewrote based on feedback of pros. That would stand for the English version as well: this is why crowdfunding is needed: proofreading, editing and giving it a cool cover: fairly paid. This book popped out three years ago, and since then I have been working on the text coming back to it constantly: adding, subtracting and deepening the text. SUPPORT the book: so it gets to the readers. faludi julianna
