Not a Pyramid Scheme. Probably.

Hello lovely pledgefolk.

I've had an idea.

Cockerings is currently 35% funded - we've sailed past the 1/4 mark and the 1/3 mark. 50% is on the horizon.

But the pledges are coming in very slowly.

So what if I ask you guys to help me to get some new pledges?

Not for free, mind.

If you can get me THREE new pledgers I'll send you an exclusive signed print of an artwork by me. 

Is that some kind of incentive? It'll look like this:

It features three of the main characters from Cockerings plus a few story elements scattered about.

Get me three new pledgers and it's yours.

Why am I doing this? Because there's only one of me and there are over 80 of you. Many hands make light work and the book would be funded in no time.

And, of course, if you get a new pledger and they want to find three new pledgers themselves they'll get a print too and the book will be funded quicker still.

This may seem like a pyramid scheme.

It isn't.*

But I SO want to get this book into your hands that I'm willing to give it a try.

If you can find three new pledgers, email me at with their names. When they appear on the subscriber list, I'll contact you for an address to send the print to. It's as simple as that.

Oh, and there is a colour version of the print too.


If you can get me FIVE new pledgers I'll send you a signed one of those.

Good luck!


*Okay. It sort-of is.
