Dear Endlessly Patient Subscribers

I just wanted to let you know that A Mighty Boy went to print at the end of May.

What can I say?

I have been blown away by the support for the book so far - 50% funded in just over two days. It has been a whirlwind! I only saw the video for the first time at the weekend and my feet have barely touched the ground since, although I notice the cat has still managed to cling on to a place on my lap!

If Silas was here, I know he would be craning his neck over my shoulder, his…
