What do you get for your investment?

I am offering 1000 of 2000 shares available for you to purchase and support the book. The money raised will be used to cover the printing and distribution costs for the first edition of the book.

To be 100% transparent, the remaining 1000 shares will be shared between others who will be working on the book with me; including Dominic McKenzie who is the Family of Dirty Boxers official illustrator. Personally, I will probably end up with around 600 shares for myself.

This money will cover art-work, editing, set-up, design, printing the first edition books and marketing. Like how podcasting and You Tube has made it easy for people to ‘do-it-themselves’, we want to see if it is possible to do the same in the print world!

Now I am not talking about buying in to a book idea for a first edition and that’s it…
These shares are an investment and will be active for the lifetime of the title’s publication; including (but not limited to):

  • Hard-back copies,
  • Paper-back copies,
  • eBook versions,
  • Audio-book versions,
  • Braille versions,
  • Translated versions,
  • heck even Film rights (gotta dream!).

I am also planning to make new editions and revisions to this book to keep it fresh and up-to-date. Your shares will also valid and rewarded with each of these editions. For me, this is a serious opportunity, and so I do not use the word ‘investment’ lightly. This will be the first book of hopefully many I will be the beginning of my writing in my ‘career’, and so is an important foundation and starting point for it.

There is a gradient scale of options to meet everyone’s budget – each with more rewards in return for your investment:
