An impassioned talk from Dan on the greatest idea that's ever had him.
That idea struck in 2011 when Dan was sat on his lunch break from his minimum wage job, on a beach in Bognor Regis. An author and travel writer, he had spent ten years writing books (including a Sunday Times Bestseller) until the crash of 2008 left him unable to get his new book published. Publishers had become too risk-averse.
But at that moment, he realised he was not alone. There were authors worldwide unable to publish the books they want to write because the publishers weren't connected to the people that buy the books - they sell books to retailers, not readers.
The spread of ideas, communication and language had no way to get through, so Dan set about creating a platform to connect those ideas directly to the readers most keen to hear them. And Unbound was born.
