Journalist, presenter and blogger
Hello. This is a secure store-front set up to accept crowdfunding donations for my work on the Post Office Horizon scandal and the Depp v NGN libel action.
Over the course of March and April 2021 I am running an active campaign to crowdfund my work on the Post Office story (and the single Depp v NGN hearing date on 18 March!)
As well as my day-to-day journalism on www.PostOfficeTrial.com and courtroom live-tweeting from the Court of Appeal at the end of March, I am now also able to offer you a copy of my forthcoming book about the Post Office Horizon scandal in return for your kind donation. It will be the definitive account of this decades-long saga.
To get on the pre-sale list for the book, all you have to do is click on the Post Office Scandal link below (if you click on the Depp v NGN link, there is a straightforward crowdfunding option).
The Post Office link allows you to choose whether to donate a certain amount to get access to the "secret" Post Office email list, the ebook and/or a signed first edition hardback book.
Have a click around the various options, and obviously only pay what you can afford, but I would be exceptionally grateful if you are able to donate and support the pre-sales for the book. As well investing in open-access, public-interest journalism, you'll have something to show for it when the book is published in Autumn 2021!
NB: If you don't want to donate and just want the book, hang on till April/May when the book will be on pre-sale from the publishers at £25 (+£3.50 UK shipping) for the hardback, or £8.99 for the ebook.
Please read all of the information below before choosing your preferred option from the drop-down menu.
By taking part in this process you are kindly making a donation to support my work. Certain levels of donation (as listed below) qualify for the book/ebook (or multiple copies thereof) as rewards for your generosity. The cheapest way to get both the book and/or ebook will be to wait until it goes on general pre-sale in April/May 2021.
Up to £15 - support my reporting over the next few weeks, which will be posted up for free on www.PostOfficeTrial.com.
£20 - will see you signed up to the "secret" email newsletter on immediate receipt of payment. This is an irregular, and sometimes irreverent inside track on the Horizon scandal which gives wider context to the story.
£25 - as well as joining the secret emailers, you will receive an ebook of the forthcoming definitive account of the Post Office Horizon scandal, published by Bath Publishing in Autumn this year.
£40 - as well as being a secret emailer, you will receive a a signed, hardback copy of the forthcoming definitive account of the Post Office Horizon scandal, published in Autumn this year by Bath Publishing.
£45 - the triple-whammy - the signed hardback book, the ebook, and become a secret emailer.
All UK orders come with free shipping.
Please note: Both products will be on general pre-sale from April/May 2021 at their full price. Hardback: £25 (+ £3.50 shipping) and £8.99 (ebook). If you don't wish to donate, and would rather just buy the book/ebook, please wait until then.
Unfortunately Bath Publishing have to charge a flat £20 surcharge for ALL non-UK orders of hardback (ie physical) copies of The Great Post Office Scandal. Donors who qualify for multiple copies of the hardback (ie those donating £100 or more in a single category) will only be charged the flat £20 rate. Multiple order quantities (eg 2 x £40 donations) for overseas customers will be charged at £20 each.
If you would like to make multiple donations and receive multiple copies of the book/ebook, please adjust the quantity accordingly. If you wish to scale up your cash donation without necessarily wishing to receive too many copies of the book, the option to do so is in the drop down menu!
If you want to buy multiple copies of the book, but just make one donation, it will be cheaper to buy the extra books when they go on stand-alone pre-sale in April/May.
Please note that if your donation category includes one or more books/ebooks, to fulfil your order you will need to supply a shipping address and/or email address as part of the checkout process. These details will be passed to Bath Publishing, who will be fulfilling your order when the book is published.
Technical note: The ecommerce platforms I am using (Ecwid and PayPal, if you're interested) are sometimes a bit too clever for their own good , particularly when you're trying to fill your details out. Look out for a US flag above the address form. The flag is actually a drop-down menu. If you live in the UK, click on the US flag, and lo, a Union Jack appears. Click on that, and you are away.
I really am so grateful to you for supporting my journalism and hope all the above makes sense. I am sorry if it is confusing or you cannot get it to work. If you have any queries before or after purchasing, please email me: email@example.com - if you are having real trouble, I can always take your cash/cheque/BACS payment and shipping details directly.
