Mini book tour for 2089!
Monday, 22 April 2019
It's been six months since 2089 was published. If you've had a chance to read it, I'd be really grateful if you could post a review either on Goodreads or Amazon. Good or bad - honest reviews really help authors. It's been selling, but not lighting up the bestseller lists ... yet.
If you'd like me to sign a paperback copy, I've lined up another round of half a dozen appearances in…
Got 2089 yet?
Tuesday, 23 October 2018
Welcome to the future! 2089 was published a month ago now, so you should have received your copy of the ebook or paperback by now. I know that it has made it to places as far away as Canada and New Zealand, so hopefully everyone has theirs now. I'd love to see the exotic places is it being read, so do send me pix of it in far flung places. Or just at home!

From one editor on to the next!
Monday, 28 May 2018
Hi there 2089 supporter,
Just wanted to let you know that the book has been through the mill with the structural editor, and been refined down to a really lean, mean surveillance machine. So now it's off to the copy editor for a few more tweaks in style plus making sure there aren't any errors with speling. puntuation but grammer.
Separately, I've also been working on some of the exciting launch…
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.
So we're now up to 96% funded! Help get us over the line by reminding all your friends and social media followers about the project and direct them to the Unbound page so they can see for themselves. With the aim to publish in September, we…
Crowdfunding window extended!
Monday, 15 January 2018
Hi all, thanks so much for your support for my new novel, 2089. Whilst the crowdfunding has slowed up since the initial surge of interest, the deadline has been extended to 1st March, so do get sharing the weblink with everyone you know!
And tell people about the blog too: loads of interesting background and ideas about the themes covered in the book are at
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!
Tuesday, 28 November 2017
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!
Thursday, 26 October 2017
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!
