Hello there and welcome to this Kickstarter Campaign!

FUNDING HAS ALREADY BEEN REACHED!!! I still can't quite believe this, but we have already met the funding goal, so this project will be going ahead! Thank you so much!

PLEASE NOTE - You should now think of your pledges more like orders, as the project is definitely going ahead! These particular books will ONLY be offered as rewards and will not be available to purchase after the Kickstarter has ended. I will only make as many as are requested here.

STRETCH REWARDS - have now all been unlocked! They are as follows:

£20k - Supporting card item to be sent out with each book. These will differ from book to book.

£30k - A full set of these card items to go out with every book!

£50k - An additional book! A Book of Supernatural History. Of course, this will take more time to produce, and I will do so after the other 4 books.

£75k - An additional item FREE WITH EVERY PLEDGE. To be confirmed, either a pouch of related coins, or an additional paper item.

£100k - I will set up another Kickstarter in 2020 releasing more Books we All Need. The original 5 will be available, along with more, new books! All those who pledge for this subsequent Kickstarter will receive free shipping on their chosen rewards, should it go ahead.

As many of you know, I love creating books that I feel offer something to others and I have been doing so for a while now. I feel that now it's time to release this project so that more of you may enjoy my work! Some of you may well have read my previous work, in which case you know what you can expect. I would be most grateful for your support in my hopes to produce four 'Books we All Need'.

The topics of the books I intend to produce are as follows:

This book will outline the correct processes involved in successful cooking, such as cooking theory, ingredient selection, and the process itself. An essential life skill for all!

This book will provide the reader with a set of short stories, each of which reinforces moral values. True or not, we can all learn something from them.

This book will outline specific history that we should all be aware of, including locational history, traditions, and historical figures. Learn more about the details you may have missed.

This book will assist in practical methods of self-defence at a variety of skill levels, such as target specific defence and avoidance. It's not always about fighting back!

Of course, there will be more detail to follow as the project moves forward, but let's see how well it gets on to start with! It will take me a while to create them as 'books don't grow on trees', so I appreciate your patience.

Risks and challenges

The production time will be closely managed to meet to estimated delivery date.
