Time's Fool makes an excellent Christmas present

Stuck buying a present for that awkward person in your life? Looking for a stocking filler for a bookworm? Why not pre-order them a copy of Time's Fool?

It's perfect for winter, a story of darkness closing in and the light that we make in it, a proper old-school supernatural horror for the festive season. Not only can you get them a copy, but they can have their name in the list of supporters in the back.

But Alys, I hear you cry, how can we gift a book that's still crowdfunding?

I'm so glad you asked me that, oh obliging and hypothetical reader. There are a few ways:

  1. Make an account based on your email address - but use their delivery address and name to appear in the back of the book. This means that you will receive any updates. (You can always change the email address to theirs in account settings after they know what they're getting, but remember not to pick the "save card details" option when paying if you intend to do this.)
  2. Make an account based on their email address. Again, remember not to save your card details, and be aware they will receive the updates from the moment you purchase the book. Be sure to tell them what you've done and send them the password.
  3. Purchase a second copy for yourself on your account, (or upgrade to the read with a friend option) and change your name to [your name] and [friend's name] - although this will affect how it appears on all your Unbound purchases.

But the book is still crowdfunding! What do I give them on the day?

Ahahah! What about this beautiful print-at-home voucher?

I will be uploading this (and one for ebook and signed versions) to a dropbox file from where you can download them.

Alternatively, if you are going for a different option - like the cake or murder mystery level, or want me to email you the file then drop me a message on my Facebook page or Twitter (@alysdragon) and I'll get it to you.

Thank you for your support. Stay spooky.
