ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions: now on Indiegogo

Published March 06, 2015

I'm happy to announce that the new and final crowdfunding campaign for the updated edition of ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions will launch on Indiegogo on Monday 9 March 2015 at 10.00am (CET). The new campaign will offer the hardback book along with an eBook version (the paperback version, as featured in my recent survey, will not be a part of the campaign - there simply wasn't enough interest to make it a viable proposition).

WHY DO A SECOND CAMPAIGN?

Thanks to the first crowdfunding campaign, on Kickstarter, I now have a much clearer view of exactly how many are interested in pre-ordering the updated edition of ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions, and how many are actually able to do so at this stage (I fully understand that many would have wanted to contribute, but were unable to for various reasons). Furthermore, I learned which aspects of the campaign worked brilliantly and which were less successful. The recent survey, where everyone was asked which of three book formats they would prefer, has also provided me with important data. Taken together, this has now enabled me to put together a second crowdfunding campaign with a much greater chance of success.

I am confident that I'm in a position to write a really interesting and authoritative book - I'm already bursting with interesting information and untold stories that I'm looking forward to sharing with you all - so that's why I'm doing this second campaign. And don't worry: I'm not going to do campaign after campaign after campaign. This will be the final one, so if it doesn't work, it's unlikely that ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions will be updated in the foreseeable future. I thank you in advance for your patience; I'm just very eager to get this book project off the ground, and from the feedback I've been getting I know there are many others who feel the same way. Thanks for your support!

WHAT'S NEW AND DIFFERENT

Here's a list of some of the more important changes for the second campaign.

• Campaign now on Indiegogo instead of Kickstarter

• Transactions now handled by PayPal: you can choose between paying with credit card or with PayPal

• Campaign now run in euro (EUR) instead of kronor (SEK)

• Simplified campaign: choose between a hardback book or an e-book (or a combination of both at a reduced price)

• Bonus CD and personalised page are no longer offered. However, if all goes well, the bonus CD may be offered as a separate item sometime during the course of the book project. But it will not be a part of the current crowdfunding campaign.

• Instead of the personalised page, everyone who pre-orders the book will now get their individual copy signed by me, with a personal dedication - it will not cost you a penny extra

• At the bottom of the project page on Indiegogo, you can change the language to German, Spanish or French to have all ordering and checkout info displayed to you in your preferred language, for your convenience

• Brief summaries of important info about the campaign also available as PDFs in German, Spanish and French

• You can pre-order as many copies as you like and do it several times over

• If you want to pre-order a copy on behalf of a friend, or several friends, this option is now readily available to you. Read more about it here.
