About this project
Every year for the past fifty years I have had a great idea for a book; but 2013 was the first year that I actually committed the whole project to paper. I am now ready to independently publish and need a relatively small amount of money to fund that. It is a uniquely fascinating story - based in Exeter, Devon but linking to Exeter, Ontario, from Barbuda to New York, from Salisbury to Tuscany.
'I really enjoyed The Book - couldn't put the second half down!' Aileen Despard
It is firmly rooted in history and - I hope - shows my love of books and of libraries; but there is murder and mystery, love and adventure, and a sprinkle of the fantastical.
'Loved what I read and the way you localised everything really worked' Julian Nowill
I am sure The Book will appeal to you or someone you know. Pledge £10 or more to ensure it sees the light of day.
Risks and challenges
The Book has already been written and requires only a few minor tweaks, plus the addition of your name to the list of backers (if you wish). A local family run printing firm has been identified and is ready to go. The process of mailing books out to backers has been fully researched and modelled.
There is no risk to those pledging as no money is taken from you if the project is not fully funded. If the funding target is reached, I will contact you all individually about next steps.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
