'The Freeing of Jonathon Mark' falls in the genre of paranoid fiction. It won an IPPY award for best fiction in 2014. 'My Daughter, my Assassin' is a thriller and a love story released at the end of 2015. These were both published as epub and print editions. Epub is great for the accessibility that it provides to potential readers and the ease at which books can now be published. But I'm a 'traditionalist' when it comes to reading—so have funded personally, and via crowdfunding, my projects to print my novels. This is a process that will apply to my future books: publishing in both forms.
Another love is seeing my writing expressed in conjunction with illustrations and to that extent ‘Ginger the Carrot’—an illustrated text for adults—was published by 'Un Cafe l'edition!’
My latest project 'The very real story of the very, very Old Dude', a handmade illustrated book in Japanese accordion form, was made possible thanks to crowd-funding. It’s based on this dude, my Uncle Ben!
I'm currently working my next book, tentatively titled, 'The Jewish Terrorist'.
The plan is to share this new work of fiction as it come into being, chapter by chapter, as I write it. By the time it's finished I'll be working on my next novel and releasing it in the same fashion here on my Patreon. I'm aiming to release a chapter a week—raw and in the flesh! That is, without the trims of a final published novel but as the first (or second) draft of my writing as it happens. Perhaps this plan—one chapter a week—is a little ambition. Perhaps a chapter every two weeks will be a better pace or perhaps it will swing between the two. And some weeks might be spent editing a previous chapter based on your feedback and discussions. In any case, I will keep you posted on everything as we go along. I do remain committed to reaching these goals and completing my future novels
There are different levels of interaction, different levels of involvement in which my patrons can participate in my writing. These are listed on the right and present ways in which there are instant and continuous ways that your patronage is recognised. A couple of things to note:
- Each tier contribution is a monthly investment in return for the listed rewards.
- If you choose a tier with physical rewards, I will send them to you anywhere in the world, at no further cost to you, at the end of the first month of your patronage.
It would be a pleasure to welcome you on board as a patron to the journey that is my writing.
