So far, it's the only book I've supported, but I've certainly been tempted to pledge my support for other titles. In time, I will. Unbound lets you browse or search by category. I was first drawn to the Women in Print category, which features both fiction and nonfiction from female authors. Like other crowdfunding sites, there are options to get more in return for larger pledges, and some authors get quite creative with the options. It is one of my life's goals to have the opportunity to name a character in a book, and Unbound makes that so much more likely to happen. Unbound's biggest success story to date is The Wake by Paul Kingsnorth, which was longlisted for the 2014 Booker Prize. I hope future success stories continue to bring awareness to the site, as it is a wonderful avenue for authors and readers.

This post is not sponsored. I just happen to think Unbound is awesome and wanted to spread the word about it. But if anyone wants to pay me to write about things I think are awesome, I'm happy to listen to your pitch.
