    BOOK + COMPANION PAMPHLET DEAL

    One paperback copy of "Rhymes for all times", signed, numbered, and delivered – in a black jiffy bag adorned with a custom-made wax seal – to an address of your choice.

    AND one home-printed pamphlet called "Versification without occasion". It's a companion piece to "Rhymes for all times"; an alternative history, if you will: 14 (mostly decent) poems that didn't make the final cut for various reasons; 2 earlier (significantly different, possibly better) versions of poems that did go in, and an essay chronicling the writing, compiling and editing process - detailing why the ones that went in did, and why the ones that didn't, didn't, and what the point of it all is. This material might later be repurposed for blog-posts, but the poems might otherwise never see the light of day. (And I'll make sure it looks nice.)

    NOTE: Add £5 if you also want a copy of Has Doubts Vol 1: "Mistaken for art or rubbish".

    PATRONAGE DEAL

    As above, plus you'll be helping fund the writing and production of the next volume, so I'll dedicate either Has Doubts Vol 3 or Vol 4 (both currently in production, whichever I finish first, on a first-come, first-served basis) to you for your generosity.

    AND: your name will be painted on a foundation stone (possibly a breezeblock, but that's still a sort of stone) in the centre of the wall around the Most Serene Republic of Landskeria Independence Day Memorial Herb Garden - which will technically be a raised bed in front of the Boiler House where our publishing company and our micronation are headquartered.

    Disclaimer: if you choose this option, I'm immediately in surplus, so some of your funds might be used toward production of general promotional merchandise for later sale (e.g. coins, stamps, flags, etc., depending on the total sum raised). You will also receive at least one of anything of that kind which is produced as a result of your pledge by way of additional thanks.
