Alice Jolly, writing in support of her Dead Babies and Seaside Towns project, on surrogacy, in The Independent

I used to think surrogacy was immoral – but then I watched another women give birth to my child http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/comment/watching-another-woman-give-birth-to-my-child-changed-my-mind-about-surrogacy-9657699.html
The 'Gammy’ case - that of the Australian couple who had a child born through surrogacy, but 'rejected' its Down’s Syndrome twin - has led to much controversy in the media, characterising the surrogacy process as exploitative and immoral, that it's  'shopping for babies'.

A rather splendid podcast, in which Robert Philips announces an unfortunate death.

Probably the best haircut of any Unbound author. But (slightly) more importantly, we're launching John Robb's high-octane first-person history of the last 40 years of rock music.

'It is a book of spells. A slim volume of much power as if imbued with magic.'

Pure is the true story of my life with pure O – a rampant but little-known type of OCD with which people experience intrusive, ‘unthinkable’ thoughts, often sexual or violent in content. It tracks my farcical ten-year path to redemption, from the time I was seized by incessant sexual mental images to my eventual recovery through therapy, acceptance and love.

The book describes my obsessive questioning of my identity and my compulsive search for an answer: driving across the world in a double-decker bus; watching Jake Gyllenhaal’s face melt into a chubby vagina; sitting in the mansion of Lonely Planet’s founders and imagining them bumming across the patio… Eventually, after stepping back from the iron railings of a snow-swept balcony in east London, I find joy in the insurmountable truth that when it comes to who we are, there are no neat conclusions.

At its core, Pure is about uncertainty and insecurity, and how trying to banish these things in the pursuit of happiness will paradoxically make us unhappy. It’s about finding beauty in greyness, and embracing the unfathomable weirdness of the human mind.

This one has sneaked up to 81% after a spell out of the limelight. And it tackles an important subject - help make sure it happens.

Parents divorce each other, not their children. We can – and must – establish that the end of partnership is not the end of parenthood. Divorce may never be ideal for a child, but we can make it better.

A brilliant new project was launched last week - based on the journals of RG ‘Pum’ Gayer-Anderson, this historical biography tells of a riotous double life as the British Empire began to collapse. Candid and charming, the story is interspersed with the sordid and violent. 

'Sordid and violent'. What could be better?

Books are now in your hands
Introduction

We think authors and readers should decide which books get published. On the Unbound site, authors pitch their ideas directly to you. If you like what you read, you can pledge your support to help make the book happen. Everyone who supports an author before they reach 100% of the funding target gets their name printed in every edition of that book. All levels include a digital version and immediate access to the author's shed while they write the book, and supporters of projects that don't reach their target receive a full refund.

If you like the sound of that, then sign up and have a look around. We've got some great projects and we'd love you to help make them happen. We're @unbounders on Twitter by the way.
