    LET ME SPELL THAT FOR YOU

    This one is a bit more special.

    Sarah will hand draw you one word (either a name/a food type/a weapon of your choice) in BSL finger spelling and illustrate around it.

    You will receive this in the post along with your book.

    DAPPER GENTLEMAN

    Feeling a bit flash? Well then madam (or sir, if you prefer), step this way!

    One of the original character concept sketches will be tucked into your book. One of a kind and drawn by Sarah. The character you get will be a surprise. You could get a nice one, you could get an evil one. Take a risk, see what you find.

    MASTER OF YOUR OWN DESTINY

    Don't like surprises? We quite understand. They can be most troublesome. But do not despair! For a few extra coins you may choose your concept sketch from a selection of Deeds Not Words characters. You will be contacted about this before we send orders out.

    I WANT MORE

    Gosh. Demanding, aren't we? Good. We like a person who knows what they want and doesn't just want what they know.

    How does a portrait of yourself (or someone you know) as an Edwardian Lady, Gent or dockworker sound to you? We thought you'd like that. Drawn by either Sarah (or Howard), yours to keep. Let us know the character type you want and who you'd like to draw it. We will require a likeness of the portrait sitter if you would like it to be accurate.

    BE AN EXTRA

    Still not enough? How does being drawn into the Deeds Not Words world as a supporting cast member sound to you? Get your face in a book!

    Sarah will need a likeness in order to draw you into the background. Your role in the book will be a surprise! You could be a villain. You could be a society lady. You could be a street urchin. Exciting!

    As well as being lodged inside the story world for everyone to see, you will receive an print of that page of the book in the post, for you to display with pride (or to secretly gloat over. We won't judge you).

    BE AN EXTRA WITH A PAST

    So you want to be drawn into the world. That's great. But you'd like to know a little more about your character and why they happen to be there on that page at that moment in time?

    For a little extra, Howard will write a short back-story for your extra, which will arrive along with the rest of your goodies! Congratulations, you are no longer just a face in the crowd. You have purpose and motivation!
