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.
Last week, I added a new pledge option for a tailor-made leather armulet (as featured in the story!) on which to read the book on your smartphone. The excerpt on the Unbound project page for 2089 includes some references to it, but the armulet is the smartphone of the future, held by most users on a vambrace on their forearm. So pledging to "Read on your own armulet" will get a bespoke hand-made forearm smartphone holder; for when your hands are full but you just can't stop reading the ebook!
Thanks again, and keep spreading the good word - indeed, giving somebody the gift of being a patron of the arts, by pledging on their behalf, would be a pretty unusual and awesome Christmas present!
