    Pledge £1 or more About US$ 2

    This pledge and reward has been just created because every fan is important, as is hearing from you, so you will get a mention and thank you at Phoenix Ark Press too as well as a free ebook of Light of the White Bear. Indeed this and all higher pledges will get one if they want one.

    Pledge £5 or more About US$ 7

    I know some readers have no money, but if you help with a little pledge, and spreading the word too is just as kind and helpful, you will get a big thank you, with your name listed on my little publishing website, Phoenix Ark Press, in the Light of The White Bear hall of fame!

  3. Select this reward

    Pledge £20 or more About US$ 26

    All pledges will receive a signed copy of the finished book, a signed copy of the artwork and be listed at the author's publishing website Phoenix Ark Press too, in a kind of hall of fame of friends, readers, writers and fans.

    Not to be grouchy but writing is a private thing, naturally solitary, so I don't really believe in hosting funding parties, novels by committee or putting names inside fiction, like product placing. But you will help a very committed author regain his voice, kick back against the system and edit and design a work held back for years. Many thanks to you all.

    Pledge £40 or more About US$ 52

    Along with signed copy, signed artwork copies and a place in the Phoenix Ark hall of fame online, pledge this and I'd love to thank you in person, and also chat about favourite books, with a phone or Skype call. You will also find your name alongside a list of animal characters already at the front of the novel, with your own favourite arctic animal and one you hope may be saved from extinction, like some authors!

  5. Select this reward

    Pledge £85 or more About US$ 110

    A signed copy of the novel, artwork, a listing in the Phoenix Ark Hall of fame and in the book and an invite to a book launch too, to meet the author in London. If you cannot come there can be some other way to hook up, if only by Skype. You will also be kept informed of the publishing process with Phoenix Ark Press, cover illustrations, blurb and so on, which I hope will be a valuable insight into something that goes beyond self publishing. Books will also be shipped free.

  6. Select this reward

    Pledge £199 or more About US$ 257

    For this pledge the donor will receive the package above, with three signed copies of the book but also be given a profile on Phoenix Ark Press and be invited to contribute too. That means contributing a work of fiction, a Cultural essay, poetry or something they care about, with guidance and editing from the author. Of course there can be be no fees for that but the pledging author, you, will retain full copyright. There may be some healthy creative conflict too! But the idea is actually about engagement with you and the passion to spread the word too and help build a small publisher. Shipping is free.
