It’s been a long couple of months, but I’m pleased to report that my novel, The Third Wheel, is now 65% funded! That’s nearly two-thirds of the way there! Thank you so much to everyone who has pledged support so far, now I just need a little more help to push it up to the 100% mark and get it out there for everyone to read!

If you haven’t had me tell you before, here’s a synopsis of what to expect:

Dexter is fed up. All of his friends are getting married, settling down, moving in together and growing up, and he’s being left behind with no one to hold hands with and only his ginger tom, The Great Catsby, for company. It’s not that he’s jealous of their relationships, it’s just that he thinks there’s more to life than wrapping yourself up with one other person for eternity.

But after a wedding that ends in drunken disaster, Dexter’s world – and everyone else’s, come to that – is shaken when aliens make first contact. Now faced with the prospect of imminent destruction and no practical skills whatsoever, Dexter and his friends, including sunshine optimist Ruby, science fiction geeks Jay and Kay, hard-nosed pragmatist Priti, and no-nonsense Gavin, set out on a mission to survive in this new world.

So this is where you can help me out! If you want to see this book come into existence and find its way onto bookshelves, and you’re able, please consider pledging support to the project. Everyone who pledges gets their name in the book to say thank you, but there are plenty of other rewards too! Here’s what you get:

If you pledge £10 … when the book is released, a copy will be sent right to the e-reader of your choice.

If you pledge £15 … when the book is released, you’ll get an e-book edition and a first edition paperback sent right to you, wherever you are in the world. This is a limited price, with only 8 left; after that, this will be a £20 limit.

If you pledge £25 … you can read with a friend! This option will ensure you get sent two physical copies of the book.

If you pledge £40 … this is where things get really fun! At this level, you still get the paperback and the e-book, but you will also get some additional scenes that didn’t make it into the book that further expand the world and answer some of the questions left hanging.

If you pledge £75 … you’ll receive five copies of the paperback and e-book. This is the perfect option if you want to read it for a book club, or maybe if you just need to come up with a whole bunch of Christmas presents really quickly.

If you pledge £100 … you’ll get the e-book and the paperback, fine, but you’ll also get the opportunity to name one of the minor characters. Want to have your name appear in the text? Want to immortalise your soulmate? This is your chance!

Whatever you choose to pledge to support me, you have my eternal gratitude and if we ever meet, you shall be hugged and thanked personally. I hope you’d like to support me in this project – how often can you help a book be born? Hit the icon below and support my novel today!
