Here's your chance to pre-order the second volume of a six-part (we hope!) series of books based on the moderately successful Adventures with the Wife in Space blog.

THE SCRUFFY DRUNK: THE WIFE IN SPACE VOL. 2

Foreword: Toby Hadoke
Cover Design: Andrew Orton
Book Design & Illustrations: Graham Kibble-White
Content: The Power of the Daleks to The War Games (plus The Enemy of the World Redux and The Web of Fear Redux).
Exclusive Extras: The Underwater Menace Redux, The Mind Robber video transcript, episode annotations, plus a brand new interview with Sue (including her unique take on the omnirumour).
Estimated length: 65,000 words, 275 pages approx.
Release Date: August 31st 2015

UPDATE

Every backer will receive a free sample chapter from THE WIFE IN SPACE VERSUS EVERYTHING ELSE ebook as soon as this Kickstarter campaign ends. The chapter will cover the Tomorrow People story 'A Man For Emily'.

LIMITED EDITION PAPERBACKS

The paperback edition of this book is strictly limited to 400 copies. Sue will individually number each and every copy. It will never be reprinted. When (if) these 400 copies sell out, that's it.

Everybody who orders the paperback edition of the book will have an opportunity to see their name included in the book's acknowledgements.

PLEASE NOTE: A few copies of the Volume 1 paperback are still available via our website if you missed our last Kickstarter. You won't find them anywhere else (unless you count eBay).

If you choose a signed copy of the paperback (only 100 available) you can tell Sue exactly how you'd like her to sign your book. Trust me, she'll write pretty much anything.

OVERSEAS POSTAGE: Books and artwork will be sent via Airmail (Royal Mail International Standard small parcel).

EBOOK FORMATS

The ebook comes in three different formats: MOBI, EPUB and PDF (you can download all three if you like). You'll also be given a link to download an exclusive copy of the PDF which will include Graham's fantastic typesetting.

LIMITED EDITION SIGNED POSTCARDS

If you choose the £28 reward tier and above, you will receive two A6 postcards based on the artwork featured in this campaign by Andrew Orton and Graham Kibble-White. Only 100 postcards will be printed.

STRETCH GOALS

If we exceed £7000 we will record and release a video commentary for the 7-minute Children in Need Pudsey Cutaway in December 2015. - UNLOCKED!

If we exceed £7500 we will blog The Christmas Invasion. The blog will be sent to every backer on Christmas Day as an exclusive PDF - UNLOCKED!

And finally, if we exceed £8000 we'll film an episode of 'Sue Cooks The Doctor Who Cookbook' (I've already commissioned the theme music) over the summer. Starting with Jon Pertwee's egg salad. - UNLOCKED!

SAPPHIRE AND STEEL

If you missed our Kickstarter campaign for Volume 1 and you'd like a copy of The Wife Has Been Assigned: Sapphire and Steel ebook (released in December 2015 and only available to Kickstarter backers) please add £5 to your pledge.

WHERE'S THE MONEY GOING?

The money will be spent on artwork commissions; proofing, editing and typesetting costs; printing the book; postage and packaging; producing the rewards (postcards, art cards etc) and, of course, tax.

WHAT ABOUT VOLUME 3?

If Volume 2 is successful, pre-orders for Volume 3: The Pompous Tory will begin in October 2015.

WE'D LOVE YOUR SUPPORT

Retweets and Facebook shares are also appreciated.

Thank you so much

PS: If you pledge to this campaign today, Kickstarter won't take any funds from your bank account until May 14th. And only if we're successful, of course.

Risks and challenges

The risk of this book not happening is very low given that 80% of the content is already in place. We also met our deadline for Volume 1 with room to spare (and that was our first book). However, if for any reason this book didn't happen, every backer would be refunded in full.
