Press release -
Children of the Wise Oak
Ilfracombe based, Oliver Tooley is preparing to launch the sequel to “Children of the Wise Oak” which was published by Blue Poppy Publishing in 2016 after a successful crowdfunding campaign.
Now we are preparing to launch the sequel “Women of the Wise Oak” which focuses on the journey of ‘Gwenn’ who featured in book one.
Following the previous successful formula, we are taking advance orders via crowdfunding; to cover the initial cost of editing, cover art, graphic design, and printing.
The whole project is based around using local suppliers. As was the case with the first book, the cover art will be by Iver Klingenberg, from Porlock in Somerset.
Original artwork for the first book, “Children of the Wise Oak”, painted by Iver Klingenberg.
The editor is Sarah Dawes from Bishop’s Nympton, graphic design is by Andy Jones, also of Bishop’s Nympton. Cover by Andy Jones graphic design, Bishop’s Nympton. Printing is to be undertaken by Short Run Press in Exeter. Even the crowdfunding campaign is being hosted by Newquay based Crowdfunder.
There are a range of pledges and rewards from a pound to a thousand pounds. Because this is a sequel, anyone who is new to the series will find an opportunity to get hold of the first book at a heavily discounted price.
For example; £3 for the digital book and £4 for both digital books, or £10 for the paperback and £15 for both paperbacks (includes digital books, and postage)
For those with a bigger budget, £500 will get you the original fine artwork by Iver Klingenberg, in acrylic on canvas and approx. 50cm high, and if you have extra deep pockets and a wicked sense of humour, for £1000 Oliver has said he will dress up as a Victorian lady and hand out sweets in Ilfracombe High Street during Victorian Week. He is obviously confident that nobody will stump up that much money just to see him look foolish.
