Over the past year or so I have realised that I simply can't find the resources to complete all the pieces of the Heavenfield that so many of my wonderful followers have been asking for. I had such a positive reaction to the release of The Dead Man's Feast, and so many of you asking for an audio version, that I decided if I don't ask for your help then so much will never get done...[toggle_box state="closed" type="dark" title="Read more..."]
So I am turning to Patreon. Patreon is a type of crowdfunding (like Kickstarter), but pledges are usually smaller amounts (typically $1 - $10), but monthly, so fans can become true patrons of the artworks they love. It seems such a perfect idea, whereby supporters can directly help the author or artist to have some financial stability, without the need for a publisher or agent (which I have never felt would be right for the Heavenfield).
Any pledges made would go towards the running costs of the Heavenfield, with the hope that one day I could reduce the amount of freelance work I do and make room for the Heavenfield. There are so many projects your help would directly effect, including: work on the third novel (half-way through but put on hold due to lack of resources), completion of the Heavenfield Datavault (a huge online encyclopedia of the Field), paintings, digital artworks, and also a script for a radio-play, the beginnings of which were commissioned, but again put on hold until more resources can be found.
But, of course, my main priority is the audiobook of The Dead Man's Feast. I'm aching to get started on it, and I'm sure that with your help we won't have to wait much longer![/toggle_box]
