Happy New Year!
The manuscript for Tales from the Colony was handed to the publisher before Christmas and I have spent the last two days looking at hundreds of photos of the club and its many members. I will be finalising the illustrations and sorting out the permissions for the book over the next couple of weeks.
Thank you once again for subscribing to the book.

Hi - Just finished the manuscript for the Colony book last night and emailed it off to the publisher.
As soon as we have finalised the manuscript I will let you know the publication date.
I am now making small caricature illustrations of the people featured in the book.
101% funded. Thank You!

A huge thank you to everyone who has pledged for Tales from The Colony. I am just completing the manuscript now and it will be sent off to the publishers in the next couple of weeks. I will keep you all updated concerning the book's progress and the various Colony events I have in the pipeline.

Tales from the Colony is now 93% funded.
Thank you so much for your support!
If you know someone who might want to pledge and have their name published in the book as a patron there is still time.
Unfortunately once the book is 100% funded we cannot add anymore names as the book will be being published and distributed to retailers.
