Amazing Book project that needs support

Giles’s book project needs help with getting published. He is one of the most inspiring people I know. He brings people together and promotes kindness and cooperation.

I have pledged GBP40 for his book and wanted to share this project with you.



A unique neo-noir psychological novel written in verse, inspired by the works of Raymond Chandler and filmmaker David Lynch.

The story evolves around Hobs, a young adult, trying to fathom the mystery surrounding the sudden disappearance of Jenni, the girl he’s fallen in love with, and her associations with Mike Bilk, a local businessman who is running for office. As he journeys deeper into the dark underbelly of his idyllic suburban hometown he starts to lose his grip on reality, not knowing what is real, what isn’t, and above all if there is anyone left he can trust.

About the book: 

  • High-quality, B-format hardback
  • Approx. 288 pages, 23,000 words
  • EXCLUSIVE pledge levels.
