Hi everyone,


I’ve officially been on Patreon for two weeks now! How’s it going? Is it worth it? Is it complicated to use?


In short…brill, yes, no.


But what’s it all about? For those of you who are Patreon-curious, the idea is very simple. In days of yore artistic types such as authors, poets, painters and musicians would have patrons who would help them to afford to live while they created their w...

“But there was nothing. No village or town as far as her eyes could strain. Nowhere for her saviours to come from and take her to; just fields and trees and the weeping arc of the river Greave all the way to the horizon. Just like in the books, Greaveburn was all there was; building and building until streets were foundations, roofs were floors, constantly climbing away from itself. now that Abrasia saw it, her dream of escape crumbled completely like an ancient map in her fingers. The horizon was the world's edge and there was nothing beyond it but mist and falling.

Greaveburn stood alone on this little circle of earth, the river running around and into itself like a snake eating its tail. And Abrasia was doomed to watch the sun and stars trade places for all eternity.”
Craig Hallam, Greaveburn

“Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.”
Philip K. Dick, I Hope I Shall Arrive Soon

“Speaking personally, you can have my gun, but you'll take my book when you pry my cold, dead fingers off of the binding.”
Stephen King

“Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection. It means never having to play it cool about how much you like something. It’s basically a license to proudly emote on a somewhat childish level rather than behave like a supposed adult. Being a geek is extremely liberating.”
Simon Pegg

“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.”
Oscar Wilde

“Give a man a fire and he's warm for a day, but set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life.”

Hi Martin, thanks for getting in touch. I'm afraid that due to Createspace's policies, the book is only available on Amazon.com. The Kindle version will be available early in the new year. Im afraid that since starting work on my novel with my editor, I've gotten a little behind. I'll be sure to let you kbow when it's available.

Thanks for your support.

Craig


Martin Belcher Hi Craig, I wanted to buy your book Not before bed for Kindle, but it is not available on Amazon.co.uk? Is there anywhere else I can get it? Thanks, Martin.
