Advance arrivals

Advance copies of my book have just arrived! It feels fantastic to actually hold the book in my hands, smell the ink and feel the paper.

Just one month to go now before publication, which is both exciting and scary. Writing, pitching and getting a book published has been a steep learning curve. I’ve been lucky to have had the encouragement and expertise of author/editor colleagues and friends, but also the support of a great publisher, Bradt. Best known for their travel guides, Bradt also publish a selection of travel literature (a category which The Country of Larks falls into), and have taken enormous care over the editing and production of my book.

The launch will be held at the Chorleywood Bookshop, an independent store that has been in existence for over 40 years and hosts a variety of literary events. I’ll post details of the launch a little nearer the time…
