In the not-so-distant past, I announced I would be giving away an original painting.
This is it....
The figure was still wet and the lighting not great when I took the picture, but I’m pretty happy with how the painting turned out.
How do I get this sweet piece of art? You might be asking.
Head over to here: https://unbound.co.uk/books/transilience
Order your eCopy of Transilience and then tell your friends, family, the whole world about it.
Once Transilience hits 20% funding, I’ll draw a name out of a hat and that person will receive the painting. I’ll pay for shipping anywhere on this planet of ours. All you need to do is wait for it to arrive.
That’s it! Super easy. Super Simple.
For one token of generosity, you get a book people have said nice things about. Your name is added to a list of Patrons or even Super Patrons. And you have a better chance at winning an original piece of artwork than the lottery. If you order the Limited Edition Artwork, you are guaranteed one print and plus the chance at something I’ve made.
Please have a look and support Transilience.
I think it will be worth your while.
As some of you may know, I paint.
I’ll resist the urge to qualify my ability on a scale of good to bad. I like what I paint. Others have said nice things about my paintings and I’ll leave it at that.
Lately I’ve been working with greyscale silhouettes in acrylic with one other colour to focus the piece. This is the first piece I did in this style...
My plan is to give some paintings away based on the theme of Noir.
I started one. I am very pleased with it so far. Here’s the progress.
It’s based on this rather iconic Noir image...
The plan is to paint his hat a different colour. I’m leaning towards a shade of blue.
When Transilience hits 20% Funding, I will raffle this off. Everyone who has pledged will be eligible.

I will only ever paint this once and it could be yours.
You, dear reader, have an opportunity to do an incredibly noble thing: Support my novel.
In return, you get a book with your name forever engraved into its pages and a chance at something cool to hang on your wall.

I feel a tad strange writing this here, but....
Transilience has been picked up by Unbound as an eBook. Unbound is a crowd-funding site like this one; however, goals are based on money raised and not number of books sold. All funding books (regardless of format) are professionally edited, designed and typset. No half-measures there.
With that said, take a look at my site. It’s pretty cool. I even have a video this time! A lot of funding options especially if you live in the London area or what a reason to go there. Yes, I believe I am a reason to travel to one of the great epicenters of modern civilization.

Thanks for being an amazing community!
You can also follow me here where I plan to be, henceforth, much more active.
This is it. The final day.
I’d like to thank everyone who supported Transilience.
This campaign has afforded me an opportunity to meet some very generous souls. Not only with their money. But their time. And their advice.
I have learned a great deal over the past three months. About myself. About my novel. About how to move forward.
In the short term, the plan is to try and hoodwink an agency or a publisher into picking up Transilience. In the long term, I will always keep my options open. I will continue to lurk on this site. Perhaps another contest will come along for which Transilience is ideally suited.
I have no idea what life on Inkshares is like after a campaign, but I am fairly confident I can keep Transilience up here as a draft.
I will also devote more time to my blog, Skid Rogue Haven. If you have enjoyed my updates here, perhaps you will enjoy whatever it is that appears on the pages of that site. :)
Thank you again, one and all. Due to the nature of our collective acquaintances, I can only ever use words to describe my gratitude, and I fear words alone can not do the feeling justice. You are all wonderful people.
Three days left and 176 orders to hit the light funding goal.
None of this "before I get any further" nonsense...I’ll just start with it.
