    REMOTE GIG DEAL

    One paperback copy of BOTH "In the Men's Room" and "The misery tune", signed, numbered, and delivered – in a black jiffy bag adorned with a custom-made wax seal – to an address of your choice.

    AND you can choose ANY Has Doubts poem (of the 132 spread across 4 volumes that will exist IF these books are successfully funded) to be included on the set-list of a REMOTE GIG I will record LIVE (probably in Landskeria), and upload to YouTube. The poem will be dedicated to you, with thanks, in the preamble of the reading, and if it's a relatively short one I might even learn it to perform without a book. The end result (if enough people choose this reward) will be a full Alexander Velky gig (only the second ever to occur) captured on film; the *nature* of AV steered into a communally chosen *destiny* (see what I did there). If hardly anyone chooses this you might get to choose more than one poem/dedication, but you will get AT LEAST one, and I promise to make the recording as professional as I can. (sellotaping lamps to the ceiling of the mill and everything). I will also (if there is enough demand/logistic possibility) get a live audience to witness the gig - you could even witness it yourself maybe; although I live so far away from most people that the very unlikelihood of this being feasible is WHY I have come up with the idea of a REMOTE GIG. The "delivery" for this reward indicates the books. The gig might take longer to organise, or not. But I WILL endeavour to have it done and uploaded by the end of 2018.

    Please include your POSTAL ADDRESS for the books. You may indicate your poem choice now, or (probably better) wait till you've seen the new books, where a lot of poems you will find are better than the old ones.

    MISSIONARY DEAL

    One paperback copy of the TWO NEW BOOKs:

    "In the Men's Room" and
    "The misery tune"

    PLUS one copy of each of

    "Mistaken for art or rubbish"
    "Rhymes for all times"
    "In the Men's Room" and
    "The misery tune"

    to send to a friend. (Or an enemy?)

    All signed, numbered, and delivered – in a black jiffy bag adorned with a custom-made wax seal – to an address of your choice.

    Please include your POSTAL ADDRESS and the name and POSTAL ADDRESS of your friend. Postage is pretty high on this one, but the two old books are effectively FREE in the reward cost to help balance it out a bit.

    MEMENTO MORI DEAL

    One paperback copy of BOTH "In the Men's Room" and "The misery tune", signed, numbered, and delivered – in a black jiffy bag adorned with a custom-made wax seal – to an address of your choice.

    AND ONE (of NINE) "Memento mori" paintings I plan to do to celebrate the publishing of The Misery Tune. Each painting will be composed of a light/dark, faded, colourful background, and a contrasting foreground haunted by a grisly image of mortality which I will produce by painting my entire face and forehead, then imprinting it on the canvas while contorting my expression into one of existential dread. For a vague idea of what it'll look like, see the painting on the beam in the mill behind the camera-child at the end of the interview video on this page. It will be like that, but better, and smaller (just big enough for a face, probably square). The painting will serve as a memento mori, simultaneously reminding you of your mortality and encouraging you to make the most of your earthly existence.

    So, yeah, please include your POSTAL ADDRESS.

    PATRONAGE DEAL

    As many books as you like delivered to as many addresses as you like (while still making the operation financially viable, i.e. not exceeding 100 books all being sent to individual addresses in Antarctica, okay, patron?) Also one of the new books (whichever you choose) will be dedicated to you in this and any future editions published by us, and you will have thanks in the acknowledgement sections of both, AND a "Memento mori" painting - or indeed up to nine of them if you want: as many as have not been bagged by this point. And a poem choice in the remote gig, obviously. Or your own entire remote gig if you want.

    If I get more than one patron I'll cross, and quite possibly burn, that bridge when I come to it.
