Down to the wire!

Thursday, 4 February 2016

First Light is fully funded and ready to go -- we've known that for a while. Now we have an official publication date -- May -- and I've seen what the (beautiful!) cover will look like. Nope, I'm not going to spoil the surprise -- but I will say I am delighted, as I've been delighted with putting this book together every step of the way. It's remarkable to have been in close touch not only with my wonderful publisher, Unbound, but also with a gathering of supporters who love Alan's work just as much as I do. That really is something new. 

And now Unbound have told me that the supporters' list must close at midnight, on Monday the 15th of February. After that the presses must roll! So, my friends -- this is your very last chance to get your name in the back of First Light -- yes, your name in a book that also has Alan Garner's name on it! If I say so myself, that's really quite something. If you've already pledged your support, go on! Tell a few more chums! Spread the word, and let's make Unbound add a few extra pages to First Light!

But once again -- thank you, thank you. I can't wait until you hold the book in your hands.

Congratulations, Erica, on your energy and enthusiasm, without which this wonderful project would not have begun. I'm so looking forward to seeing my contribution within the book, to reading all the others, to the lauch party and the walk in Alderley Edge. And it's all down to you - so thank you.
PS: I hope a few new people will jump on this glorious bandwagon now, at the last minute!
