The news --
Reveries will be released as an ebook (Kindle edition) this FRIDAY, 29 MARCH. Save the date. A paperback publication will follow in a month or two - it's a work in progress.
An especially brilliant thing --
5 artist friends of mine have produced 5 original artworks relating to the book. 1 is being used as the official book cover, for the ebook and print editions. The other 4 will exist as standalone artworks, and all of them are available through the Kickstarter reward system (more below).
Finnegan Travers is a freelance visual artist from Totnes, based in London, specialising in photography, video graphic design. His design will feature as the book's actual front cover. It is striking and minimal and unlike anything else I've seen. (Image above)
Finally, Laura Willerton is, among other things, a fabulous textile artist. She hand-embroiders every t-shirt with love and care, to order. These are available through the Kickstarter reward system.
I have launched a Kickstarter crowdfund campaign in order to fund:
- A print-run of the book here in Sri Lanka, so that it can be available in brick-and-mortar stores
- A separate print-run in the UK so that I have advance copies to give to reviewers, books for shops and cafes that want to stock it, and copies for me to sell at, say, events or launches
- An audiobook, for which I will pay voice actors
