I have written a book. A fiction book, not dry law stuff.
It is Harry Potter and Scum and the Devil Rides Out and Porridge, all stuck into a blender with ice, sugar and rum and turned up to the max power setting.
It is finished, and if everything goes well [WHICH IT WILL!] , you will be able to have it in your trembling beautiful and tender hands by around Christmas.
The good folks at http://www.unbound.com are looking after me. Their model is a Crowdfunding one and there are authors like Raymond Briggs and Tibor Fischer using it, so LEGIT!
Here is the page all about the book.
If the book can get sufficient pre-orders, then it will be published and available to read on your Kindle, Ipad, Iphone or other electrical device (not kettles, or irons) around Christmas time.
What that means is that I would like you to visit the site, and have a look at the description of the book (and the sample chapter!) and you can look at my photograph and watch a video of me talking about the book and asking nicely for your support.
If you are interested in it, you can pre-order – if the book doesn’t get published, you’ll get your money back, but let’s not be negative – I am super-confident that we can get this done and have me invading your iphone. There are all sorts of different levels of pledges you can make and all sorts of different rewards that you’ll get in return.
The main reward of course is that you will become A PATRON OF THE ARTS! How cool is that? And you’ll get to read my feverish prose.

Also, please RT this piece to people, put it on your Facebook, forward it to people you know, nail copies of it to trees and roll it up into bottles and toss it into the ocean, that sort of thing. The more people who see it, the better.
Help me realise this dream, and I will love you forever
I actually legit have the song “I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it” playing in my mind right now….
