About the author

Blogger, political and personal essayist, Rae Story has written for a diverse range of outlets, from Ms Magazine to Mumsnet, from The F Word to The Morning Star.

In her first polemical outing on the sex industry, Rae coined the term Whoreburbia, which no-one ever used, a part from one cheeky 'ain't the sex industry splendid?' upstart, and then only to subvert the meaning. An online frisson that no-one, even the main protagonists, paid any attention to. It seems likely that Russell Brand had released another of his seminal videos on the merits of vague, green tea fuelled Anarchopulism that day, and there simply wasn't time.

What concerns Rae, in essence, are the ways in which differing groups of people seek to legitimise the commercialisation of sex, sexuality, womanhood and relationships. It is what keeps her from going back to sleep at night after her early morning trip to the latrine, and she deems it high time these personal obsessions ought to be fictionalised.

$10 In the Digital

22 readers

If you are my digital buddy and are willing to hiccup up a round tenner, you will get Nye's litany of bad wisdoms and stupid decisions delineated for you in the form of a 'digital copy'. I will write it, and someone more clever somewhere else with convert it into 0s + 1s. In fact, they are doing it right now. Show offs.

Ebook included

$20 In the (paper) Flesh... Package

6 readers

If you are in my hard copy cohort and are willing to cough away a twenty, I will personally go and chop down a tree (not really) upon which I shall scribe Nye's part life (again, not really). In any case you will get a copy with which you can cuddle up in bed with, and probably have a good cry. You will also get a digital copy for reading on the bus.

$25 With Love... Package

4 readers

As one day I will find myself becoming very busy and important, a signed personalised message from moi, on the inside of your hard copy, will likely become a useful investment on your part. By likely, I mean roughly in the ballpark of likelihood as seeing an articulate runner bean strolling into a library to ask for a copy of anything written by Paddy Ashdown.*

As previous, your real life copy comes accompanied with a digital version.

*I promise the novel shan't contain any more of these terrible please-like-me-I'm-quirky 'jokes'.

If your number two is your soon to be spouse, the book - once read or otherwise - can double as wedding confetti, if fed into a domestic shredder.

Update #1 - Book Update! April 4, 2017

Hi all,

This is an update from my crowd-funder for 'Decade'

As some of you may know, both the title and the cover of the novel, that many of you have pre-ordered, has been changed, to more suitably fit some of the slight narrative shifts that have occurred in the last month or so.

Decade is now 'what they call silence', and is trotting towards the finish line. 

The book should be edited and ready to purchase by mid  August, and those of you who have pre-ordered  should  get their copy a week or so before.

To view the new cover and a clip you can visit this page -

Thanks!
