Thank you for visiting. You're ready to help complete a new piece of creative art. That makes you a Patron of the Arts, and a lover of books. You realise that, don't you? THANK YOU.
Okay. I understand. Steady on. I'm jumping the gun. You haven't decided whether you'll join in or not. Not yet, anyway. Here's the deal.
My latest novel "TITLE STILL A SECRET" (that's not the name of the novel. I mean, the title really is still a secret) was completed two months ago. After a period of rest, recuperation and gentle cooling off, the pages are now ready for the Edit where they must justify their worth, and prepare to be brutalised where necessary. This must be completed by September 1st.
I have spread the cost of the edit across the days of the month. No rest for the wicked.
€65 makes you Boss For The Day.
I'm looking for 31 Daily Backers. One for each August day. Thirty one names.
These thirty one names will be put into the novel at this final, late stage. Yes, your name will pop up in the finished book! That's a little printed Thank You for posterity. Anyone who wants to be anonymous, of course, can remain so. (Anyone who wants to contribute directly, and not through this site, can also do so. Simply let me know.)
Each €65 gift buys another day of the edit, and your name (or the name of someone you nominate) in the novel. But you can contribute however much you feel you are comfortable with.
Review of the first draft (not a friend or family member, but a book lover)
"You really have a great talent for story telling, and a wonderful way with words. I hope you write lots more books and offer me the chance to read them first!"
Thanks, everyone. Take care.
