Writing update

After many gruelling weeks of dreaming, drinking, walking, wondering... and then sitting down and actually writing something, we are now just days away from completing the first draft of the manuscript of Shirk, Rest & Play - the ultimate guide to getting more out of your life by doing less, worrying less and leaning on lamp posts.

We look forward to sharing the results with you in the near future.

Once we have submitted the MS we will have a better idea of a possible publication date, likely to be 2022. We will also be able to turn our attention to delivering some of the pledge rewards. Some rewards will have to wait until publication but others may be able to happen sooner, Covid-19 regulations permitting.

Meanwhile, here is Vinny at our kick off meeting in the Waterloo Tap at the end of April. 

And a shot of Andy awaiting inspiraiton in his beloved Ruskin Park.

And here is a pic of the laptops in Ortus Cafe, Camberwell, yesterday, just to prove that our writing process doesn't always involve booze. Which is annoying.

As ever, thank you for supporting this book.

Love and pints, 

Andy & Vinny
