Well, Phoenix Ark Readers you’re doing it again! The stats and so the readership are leaping up, no doubt with all the personal stuff, but the PLEDGES are still limping along, like wounded or drowning polar bears. Despite that most fantastic jump yesterday and just now, thank you, Adam, Martin and Yasmin, which proves it can happen. Would you like your life though, work, art or blogs to be a nasty spectator sport, much the world sport nowadays on the bad mirror of the Internet and Facebook?
What a wonderful comment by Yasmin though, below – “There are only two authors that I can say that have had a profound influence on my life and you are one of them.”
So please don’t just LIKE, though that’s great too, but really support and if you can’t afford anything, spread the word too. Moving towards a Grand THERE IS STILL A VERY GREAT CHANCE but since a fan worked out this Kickstarter effort needs around £274 a day (though experts say it hots up in the last ten days), THIS IS THE WEEK THAT COUNTS, the week of making, and YOU ARE THE PEOPLE WHO WILL MAKE IT COUNT OR FAIL. Here’s looking at you, kids.
So again I go on camera and talk about personal things, books being very personal, wear a silly hat with the badge of the Chitral Scouts, read, howl, tear up contracts as bad and ruthless editors did, while serving their careers alone, explain this serious fight against the system and attempt to communicate through the awful wall of non-communication and isolation all over the Internet. But also talk about why I am NOT BEING NEGATIVE either, out of a six year not 30 days battle, just not really being quite heard yet, and am trying to find some warrior spirit again too. After all, Light of The White Bear is both about planet saving and Warrior Storytellers!

Woa. Barely just left a pledge and I happen to see this! I’m touched for the mention.
I’m sorry to hear about all your troubles. There are only two authors that I can say that have had a profound influence on my life and you are one of them. You’re books Fire Bringer and The Sight are one of the few books that have tugged at my heartstrings since I discovered them as a child. How could I not give something back?
So keep trudging on through this blizzard and seek the sun, sir! … and apologies if I sound like a gushing, cooing pigeon (haha).
I’ve tried to spread the word amongst fellow book-fans, hopefully it will help.
…Now I’ve got the itch to pull out your books for a read. Oh so many books, so little time!
I LOVE gushing and gooing pigeons…..Well, Doves at least, deer, wolves and bears. Yasmin, thank you again.
