Some of you may know that I've written a couple of books. The first, Child of the Hive, is a sci-fi adventure set in near-future England. The second is the hugely exciting Designing Forms for SharePoint and InfoPath.

I have written another sci-fi adventure, Omega Rising, and decided to self-publish. This means I'm paying for editing, copy-editing, proof-reading, typesetting, formatting, cover design and printing. In order to help contribute to the costs, I've set up a kickstarter project for the book.

Please take a look at the project and, if the book sounds interesting, make a contribution and earn a reward. If you pledge £2, you'll be rewarded with a copy of the ebook. If you pledge £10, you'll get a signed copy of the paperback. Even if it's not your sort of book, a signed copy would make a wonderful present for someone.
