Kickstart a Book

We have until 14:28 on Saturday 22nd June to raise our funding via Kickstarter. This will give us the money we need to print, distribute, and market Weird Lies. It’s one of those all or nothing situations – if we don’t raise ALL the money, we don’t get any of it, so there’s no danger of us frittering it away on cake or whatever. At the moment we have a LOOOOONG way to go, and Kickstarter are worrying me by having the counter set to 3 days, when it is clearly 3 days and 22 hours

Anyone who was at Liars’ League last week will be delighted that we’ve made room for the last-minute inclusion of David McGrath‘s The Elephant in the Tower. Fastest bit of typesetting I’ve ever done, and the fastest turnaround on a contract too – thanks David!

So if you would like to help us produce this book, please visit our Kickstarter page, and take a look at the quirky and delicious rewards (there are straightforward copy-of-the-book rewards too) we have on offer for the kind folk who help us out.
