New year, new progress!
Dear Supporters of From Crimea With Love.
Again, many thanks to you all for showing belief in this project, I really appreciate the support. And getting the book ready for publications has provided a nice distraction from the annus horribilis the world has just endured.
The ‘copyedit’ of my manuscript has been combed over and will soon be fed into the ‘printing machine’. Another vital stage has been reached with completion of the cover art which I’m very happy with; many thanks to Mark Ecob (@mecobtweets) for his sterling work. The next task is to trawl through my huge photo collection to decide on which ones I want to include within the book.
And possibly the best news of all is confirmation of a release date: July 7th 2021. A glimmer of light at the end of an awfully long tunnel.
After reading this e-mail can you please to go into your Unbound account and check your e-mail and postal address are up to date. Also, you can make sure the name(s) you want printed on the supporter’s page of the book are correct. Also, tell all your Sharpe fan friends and share the lnk to the funding page; I'll soon be adding new gifts including 8 X 10 photos signed by Hugh Fraser, James Purefoy and Michael Cochrane among others.
If you’re a podcast person, you’ll enjoy the series of ‘Sharpe Attacks’ I’m recording with History Hack Podcasts in the run-up to publication of From Crimea With Love.
Stay safe, stay Sharpe!
