Crowdfunding publisher Unbound has launched YouTuber Jack Maynard's memoir and guide to living online.
The 24-year-old YouTuber, DJ and presenter entered the jungle in ITV’s I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Here! In 2017 - and was quickly asked to leave after he hit the headlines for racist and homophobic slurs in tweets dating back to 2012.
Make No Mistake launched on Unbound today (Monday 22nd July) with pledge levels including signed copies and merchandise, with more to be revealed.
Maynard said: "I want to talk in depth and honestly about living your life online, and the responsibilities that ultimately come with this. Given the position I am in, and the close relationship I have with my audience, I want us to build this book together so they feel a part of the process from the very start, and Unbound has given me the platform to do that with Make No Mistake."
The synopsis for the book reads: "His very public downfall not only revealed the serious mistakes he had made online as a teenager, but changed the way many young people considered their digital footprints. Jack’s story shows just how quickly the internet can both make and break a career, underlines how young people and their parents need to be educated in how they use their online platforms and offers support for every young person who has screwed up in front of everyone they care about. Part memoir, part cautionary tale, part advice guide and part redemption tale, Jack’s story could only have happened in this brave new digital world."
Unbound commissioned editor Katy Guest said: "It’s been fascinating to work with Jack on this story of his life from the early years onwards. It has all the fun and personality that his fans will love, and offers a thoughtful and unique perspective on how to navigate a relatively new, online world."
