Full steam ahead

Wednesday, 29 April 2020

Hi everyone,


Every email you’ve received over the past six weeks or so will no doubt have begun with the sender hoping you are keeping well during these strange times, so here’s one more for the pile. I hope you and yours are coping as well as possible with everything that’s going on. I just wanted to send out a quick message to confirm that, despite the current state of things, the Galactic…

Almost ready...

Monday, 9 March 2020

Hi everyone,

Apologies for the silence since my previous update in November - but fear not, all is progressing smoothly and the publication date in May is suddenly looming very large on the horizon.

The book has now passed the required stages and jumped through all the various hoops en route to publication and with the final minor tweaks now submitted and some snazzy chapter heading illustrations…

A publication date, a deadline - and the cover!

Hi everyone,

It's been a little while since the last update but fear not, in the meantime the book has been quietly winding its way towards completion and is very nearly there now - the rewrites, tweaks and copy-edits are all now complete and the book will very soon be sent off for typesetting, which is one of the final stages.

I'm pleased to say that the book also now has an official publication…

Update - June 2019

Friday, 7 June 2019

Hi everyone,

Just a quick update to let you know where things currently stand with the Galactic Keegan book. For the past three months I’ve been hard at work with my brilliant editor Liz on rewriting and improving the novel I’d written. With her guidance and wisdom I’ve made significant changes, including an all-new high-stakes, action-packed ending which I’m really so delighted with. We’ve now…

Galactic Keegan meets Coldwar Steve

Hi everyone,

Just a quick update to tell you about a very exciting new pre-order level that's just been launched. If you've received this update as an email then of course that means you've already pre-ordered your copy of the book, but remember that you can always upgrade an existing pledge if a new offer catches your eye. And I think this one is pretty snazzy.

The new 'Join Palangonia FC'…

Timescales and stretch goals

Wednesday, 23 January 2019

Hi everyone,

An update on where everything now stands and the long road ahead to the finish line. The book has now been assigned an editor who will go through my manuscript and give it a good, solid kick up the arse and send it back to me so that I can rewrite it and mould it into better shape. This will take several months at least, depending on how much work needs to be done. After that, there…

100% funded!

Thursday, 10 January 2019

Well! I wasn't even remotely prepared to get to this stage yet but after a sudden surge I am beyond thrilled to tell you that Galactic Keegan: The Novel is now fully funded and will be published! Thank-you all so, so much for believing in this project these past six or seven weeks and for playing a part in bringing this book into existence. It genuinely would not have been possible without each and…

80% funded!

Saturday, 5 January 2019

Hi everyone,

Just a quick update to mark the fact that Galactic Keegan: The Novel has today hit the 80% mark - I'm over the moon with that, to have almost 600 people back this project is a real thrill and very humbling. I'm chuffed that so many people want to see the book become a reality.

Please do continue to spread the word if you can and if you follow the Twitter account, thanks for being…

Over halfway there!

Monday, 10 December 2018

Hello everyone,

Well, just under three weeks in and Galactic Keegan: The Novel is already over 50% of the way towards its funding target! My ambitious aim prior to the launch was to perhaps reach that stage by Christmas, so to be there already is fantastic progress - I'm absolutely delighted and it's really all thanks to you. I'm so grateful for all the pledges, retweets, shares and general goodwill…
