Will keep this snappy-ish.
NTC is proofed now, which means the text is the text as to be published. And regarding the cover, we have whittled it down from the 4 Unbound's art director created to 1 - of which 3 versions were done, and this is where its at.
Have had nothing but a supremely brill experience with editorial and cover design - Unbound are a class outfit, I wouldn't…
I'll keep this quick - just to say NTC is a little past halfway mark of editorial.
The first bit was the structural edit: all big stuff like character/plot/theme/style/etc. This was basically painless and my editor called the novel "singular and original": for a first timer I have to be happy with that.
I'm now in copy ed: this is about continuity of time-frame, garb, stuff like…
A BIIIIG hello and MASSIVE THANKS for Night Time Cool hitting 100% on 2 January, 47 days after it launched.
I don't think it's a record for a 1st-novel author but it is up there - Unbound, the publisher, seem impressed, so I feel pretty fortunate - THANKS TO YOU ALL.
What happens next: over the next week or two I am assigned an editor, who reads the novel and makes a structural edit - basically…
Hello, hello, HELLO!!!
In 4.3 weeks the novel is now at 72% and 189 lovely people supporting it: THANKS FOREVER - everytime I think of how beautiful people are being its like a being on the front-end of A NIGHT TIME COOL BENDER.
Attached is JP having a chat on national radio last Thursday - take a listen: it might just change your life forever.
If - and only if - you fancy should you…
As always, just want to say a massive thank you for everyone's support. Twenty-five days in and there are 150 beautiful backers and 60% of total required in sales done.
If anyone happens across a tweet/Facebook post of JP's, and fancies re-posting that would be very helpful kind.
And, if you know anyone looking for a Xmas story that will warm parts beyond heart…
Hello, hello, HELLO:
First of all: again, thank you all SO SO much for supporting Night Time Cool.
After a week, 34% of the dosh needed has been raised: I am told 30% in 30 days is fair going so this is like waking and finding the Taj Mahal in the backyard: beyond brill.
From what I'm told there may be a considerable flatlining so the next few days could be interesting. Yet because each…
Hello - and thanks so much for reading this and for pledging, or considering a pledge, towards having Night Time Cool published - its very kind of you.
I have been trying to write a brilliant, moving novel for nearly 25 years - I am 46 and started my first one age 23 - and have known since 8 I wanted to write stories.
So, where I am now, on the verge of acheiving a lifelong dream, is a relentless…
