Updates like buses! 2089 Fully funded!

Wednesday, 7 March 2018

Well, you wait more than a month for an update, then two come at once.

Thanks to a couple of great pledges in the last few days, 2089 has surpassed 100% funding! Woohoo!

Thanks so much to all of you for supporting it. The editorial work will now kick in, along with cover design, marketing, all that sort of stuff. So you'll have to be patient a little while longer to actually receive your copy…

Funding nearly at the finish line!

Tuesday, 6 March 2018

Hi there all you lovers of 2089. There's been plenty of work going on towards promoting the book, both for now and towards marketing once it gets published.

The future is approaching!

Monday, 18 December 2017

Hi everyone, the crowdfunding window for 2089 is soon to close (early January) and you'll see we're still a fair way short of the target. So do tell all those friends and family you catch up with at Christmas time all about it.

And if you need something to alleviate the boredom over the holidays, my blogofthefuture.com will be continuing throughout. It's now moving into classic New Year territory…

Christmas is coming!

Thanks to everyone for supporting 2089. The initial funding surge has slowed down a bit down, so please do keep sharing the website address wth friends and family and all those social media things you get up to! If you want a quick way to explain the novel, I tend to say 'it's like 1984 meets Station Eleven'. And, I address some of the themes 2089 will make people think about at blogofthefuture.com…

The pledgometer reaches 20%!

Wednesday, 8 November 2017

Thanks to all who have pledged to make 2089 become a real life book, you are superstars!

Today we reached 20%, which is good going, but I probably need to pick up the pace a little, as time is running out.

If you reckon that there's somebody you know who would be interested in the ideas in this book, please do forward the web address on to them so that we can reach the target by Christmas. Oh…

Two weeks in... good start!

Thanks so much to all those who have pledged support for 2089! Keep spreading the good word. And the Blog of the Future is now up and running to discuss some of the themes in the novel. Check it out at, and tell everyone about that too. It gives a good flavour of some of the social, philosophical and political ideas the novel should make you think about!
