    ***NEW*** E-PATRON'S PACKAGE ---

    For this I will craft a new word for you, whatever it is that you want! Perhaps you need a word to describe something as yet unspoken, or maybe you like the sound your mouth makes but can't think of the definition for it yet. You can then use this word as you wish, and if you choose to have it included in the finished text, a note will appear at the end to tell everyone who owns that word (i.e. you) As well as this you'll get the e-book and audiobook.

    The DEFINITELY NOT A CREEP PACKAGE - - - For this you'll we can organise a special skype face to face experience with me and you, or whoever you want this gift to be shared with. Ideas for what we can do on this would be reading you a bedtime story, some poetry fun, maybe you might want me to sing some songs to you (I've got "mad" guitar skillz). Maybe you know someone in a bad situation and just needs a chat, and some cheering up - or maybe you have an idea for a book or a kickstarter project you want help with - we'll organise some video conferencing for a bit of a laugh. As well as this, you'll get a signed physical copy of the book, the e-book, audiobook, a personal thank you in the real book and anything else promised for reaching our stretch goals.

    THE CAPTAIN'S MIGHTY PACKAGE - - -

    For this amount I will read a book of your choosing on your behalf and annotate it with doodles, thoughts and a hilarious commentary throughout, as well as provide you with a humorous written synopsis of the book (or whoever you want this to be given to). The book can be anything (of a reasonable length) and would be a completely bizarre but unique gift for that special/hated someone.

    Also ideal if you have that book you're supposed to read for your thesis but you haven't got the spirit to actually complete it.

    As well as this you'll get the usual gubbins --- the e-book, audiobook and a signed physical copy of the physical book.

    You may also have a word created for you according to your design, and have this included in the text and dedicated to you if you'd like (or you can keep it locked up in a box somewhere and never uttered out loud).

    AND a special limited edition letter.

    AND all this plus a personal thank you in the physical book as well.

    You'd get most of the stuff in July like everyone else, but we'd have to work out other deadlines and that with you.

You can then use this word as you wish, and if you choose to have it included in the text, a note will appear at the end to tell everyone who owns that word (i.e. you)

    As well as this you'll get a physical copy of the book, an ebook and audiobook and a thanks in the back of it.

    You'll receive a hand-bound (might be leather bound, not sure yet, but either way a proper nice thing that smells of oak and wisdom) copy of the book which I'll promise to make lovely and special, including a number of hand-illustrated pages, dedications and all that.

    You'll also receive a normal print copy to give to a friend or keep yourself, as well as the audiobook, ebook (these things delivered in July like everyone else).

    I will also craft THREE new words for you according to your design which you can do with what you wish.

    AND a special limited edition letter.
    AND a random item from my house.
    AND you'll be personally thanked in ink in the actual book!
