Living on a Prayer... nearly

Who-ah, we're half way there... nearly.

Things seemed to have stalled. Whether it's the time of year, uncertain politics or other reasons I don't know, but I'm intending that we should get a boost in backers on Saturday 9th November, when I will be in Hull at Park Street Performing Arts Centre. I'll be all set up to take some more pre-orders before and after the play that has been written by Ian Judson about Jack Harrison VC, who fought at Oppy Wood. There's an interesting crossover between his story and that of Robert Gooding Henson that we're hoping  will bring people towards A Hundred Years to Arras. It's definitely worth getting a ticket if you're in the area.

However that pans out, I'm determined that I won't still be crowdfunding next Remembrance Day weekend, so my target is to get there by the end of 2019. If anyone fancies upgrading your pledge, don't forget you can pick a playlist for my radio show or even name a character in the book! 

The radio show is on radioabbey.com from 7pm until 9pm every Wednesday. 7pm-9pm is the rock and prog show, followed by the jazz and blues hour. Nothing if not eclectic, me. 

Anyway, this here is where all the procrastination - I mean creativity - takes place. My tiny corner of our cosy little house, where I'm currently tapping away on three projects simultaneously, including the book...
