Here’s the deal – commission David to write something tailored for a friend or a loved one for, say, a Christmas pressie? 1000 words. David needs three weeks’ notice. One week to write and two to edit, with your input if you want it. Copyright stays with David, but you can distribute widely.
David has been published by us several times, and was one of the winners of the 1st Solstice Shorts competition, with his brilliantly funny Wednesday Afternoons.
This Crowd fund ended at 8am Tuesday 1st December GMT but we are continuing here with a rather simpler offering, which will run until the day so it’s not too late to up the funds. Then we can pay the performers closer to the going rate than currently. We are determined we will pay them as much as we can!
** only 3 left
*** 3 authors, at least 7 copies of the books left…
As part of our Solstice Shorts fundraising for Longest Night, author David Mathews is offering to write two stories specifically for the lucky people who offer us the requisite funds, and would make a perfect present! Written to order of course, so there will probably not be time for it to be a christmas (or solstice!) present, but if you have someone with a birthday coming up…
I’d be happy to write a hand-made story (subject to be negotiated) for someone who would like to give it as a present or similar. Up to 1000 words for, a pledge of £100.
I would be willing to do you two. (Ts & Cs: I’d need two weeks notice, minimum. Customers print for themselves.)
I was thinking of writing to a topic or theme that the recipient reader is interested in. It could have their name in it, of course – the night Fred Bloggs jammed with Bob Marley or discovered the world’s most valuable stamp. As long as it’s a bit of fun/moving/affirming for the recipient and lets them know, more or less, that someone loves them.
It would need a chat on the phone, maybe a bit of research, a first draft and then bingo!
If someone shows interest and says could David …? You can get them to check with me.
