Nearly ready to publish

Uncle Bert's Diary is nearly ready to publish into book form. I am currently proofreading before sending off to the publisher for the bits they need to do. Tim Catherall has created a wonderful cover design for the book. The main hurdle at the moment is raising the funds to complete the publishing process. As the first print run is for 120 copies I need to raise the funds to proceed. I have set up a crowdfunded / kickstarter at the following website: LINK

If you are able to support me with this I would be extremely grateful.

Thank you.
