‘Fastian’: Progress Report

Ladies and germs, it’s been just over two weeks since I came to you all with the news about my debut novel ‘Fastian’ and my attempt to self publish and the actual funding process of doing so.

Well, great news. With a target of €1600 to meet within six weeks, after just over two weeks I have just passed the €1000 mark. I am delighted with all the words of support and kindness, but even more so, I’m over the moon at the financial help that people have afforded me. Be it ten, a hundred or anything in between. They all mean as much to me as the other.

Before I get too fricking emotional about it all (yes, I get emotional) I just want to keep you all up to date and hope that anyone now reading this can help get me over the finishing line and have a direct hand in helping get ‘Fastian’ to market.

You can go here and check out my funding page. It will give you all the info on myself and ‘Fastian’ and how you can help.

I hope this all find you well and I haven’t been posting much lately because I’m so fricking busy getting to the end of my 120,000 work of magic (modesty was never my strong point).

Will anyone want to read it? I have no talent! I’m wasting my time. These were just some of the thoughts that drifted through my mind each time I sat down in front of my Mac (yes I love my Mac).

Over the course of five years since I started writing in earnest, there is one completed novel that will never see the light of day; three half finished novels that almost broke my heart and my spirit; numerous short stories that vary between toilet paper and outright genius (the arrogant pup in me coming out).

However, now, after all this time, after all the good wishes and ‘you-can-do-its’ – enter fanfare and cringeworthy cliches – MY TIME HAS COME! Continue reading
