July 17th 2019 – Book deal offer
In the last few weeks I have made 8 submissions to publishers in the hope of landing a book deal offer. Today I received an offer from the History Press at lunchtime. Another company asked for the full manuscript, and nothing have I heard from the other six. It came as a great shot in the arm. My alternative of funding a self published book via sponsorship has yielded a poor response. A contract is to follow, and although I know the money will be small, at least after all the hard work the book will see the light of day…hopefully
July 2019 – a chink of light
June announcement – unsuccessful funding application
January 2019 – Intentions for 2019. A new Book
I made an announcement about Book 11 in January of this year, outlined the concept, the chapters and generally tried to notify people of my plans.
