Support a fiction writer to keep literature alive in Northland. I'm asking for help to get 16 Tai Tokerau tales into print.

Yo! Mike the Writer here.

I give plenty to the Northland creative arts community, putting on poetry shows, creative writing workshops and improvisation theatre fundraisers.

Now I'm wondering if you can support me to keep literature alive in Northland. I'm asking for help to pay for the printing of one of the best short story collections you'll ever read, at just ten bucks per book.

TRUE? is a brand new collection of sixteen short stories. They're tales of people working through shame to make their lives better, set in the milieu of Kiwi millennials. I'm one of the few people out there giving up hours each month to capture realistic stories of true blue Kiwis you'll recognise. Previous book reviews have said I'm apparently one of the most original short story writers of my generation (Takahe #86) and my last short story set was a "remarkably satisfying collection" (North & South January 2018).

So can you support me to raise $1000 to help some Tai Tokerau tales into print? The goal is pretty modest. Put in ten bucks and you get a presale book, AND you get thanked in the acknowledgements.

Copies which aren't pre-sold can be given to younger Northland writers to inspire them to write fiction.

What to expect when you're expecting a copy of TRUE? short stories:

- 216x140mm printed book with 350gsm silk art cover and 90gsm white offset pages printed at JOP in Whangarei

304 page book. Cover = gloss laminated

COST: $920 ex GST, or $9.20 per book for 100 copies.

Love and thanks

Mike Botur

Use of funds:

All funds go directly into printing 100 copies of the books. Your donation earns you a book with your name in the acknowledgements.
