Crowd fund Reward Noon T Shirt

Crowd funding. I kind of hate it. Asking people for money goes against the grain.  Having to keep on about it so people don’t forget. It is painful. Seven Days to go now.

Plug. Plug. Plug.

Be that as it may, here I go again, with something that you can wear.

Pledge £20 or more

crowdfunding – tell us what you want!

We are exactly half way through our crowd fund, but have only hit 25% or the target AAAARGGHH!

If there’s something (no rude suggestions ta) that you’d like to see in the rewards that’s within our capacity to provide, tell us what is missing. I’m just about to add some music from previous collaborators in Solstice Shorts, and an invitation to the launch of the forthcoming book in March 2019 in London.

Don’t hang about folks. there are only 7 days left to raise the money.

I’ll even consider baking a second cake. (She says, looking a the time.)
