Dale seems to be the only one who has ever heard about it.

Nope. Dale just made this up for some unknown reason

Not unknown Herlock. It's because he sees dead dogs in the paintings, hence there must have been dead dogs in the room of Kelly, despite not only NO EVIDENCE FOR SUCH A SUGGESTION. But loads of evidence AGAINST it.


Still I see no answer as to why he wants to use kick start or similar to fund the production of this? Is it so that The Author takes no finiacal risk?
As I said before he can self publish and if he goes by ebook, there may be no costs, depending on how he does it. Or if for instance he self published physical book on Amazon. He basically only pays when a copy is sold, it's printed on demand..

I see from the website the the funding is to cover copyright permissions, that sounds like a lot of paintings considering the likely sales. Ripper books don't sell big unless you are Ms Cornwell, with a massive fan base to start with.
A figure of 10000 was quoted earlier, was this correct because I now see it is less than 6000 asked for and less than 400 raised, don't look like this will happen unless a big hitter comes along.

Was that a typo Steve?

You’ve put ‘big hitter’ when I think that you meant to type ‘big idiot.’

Yes Jon,
But didn't he say exactly the same before. And there was no book.
If he was ready to publish it would be ok. We could read the work or not, I would and then comment. But it looks like the latest effort is unlikely to work and the work is no nearer publication..


Anyway best to leave it, if he publishes it we can debate seriously.

Hi Steve

Understood.
I had to say something as I felt a bit uncomfortable about the stick he was getting. He wasn`t replying and I do worry about the people behind the keyboard. Just one person saying steady chaps may make a difference.
We are British after all !!
