Pub date & salon

Monday, 4 November 2019

So Jacob's Advice has a publication date! Expect it to arrive in all good bookshops on August 20th 2020...

A huge thank you to all who've supported (and I'll be seeing some of you at the Salon Night to thank you personally). Do please tell your friends about the book and encourage them to pledge. In…

Please do spread the word with friends & on social media (if you haven't already - thanks to everyone who has!) In the meantime, here's something I wrote for the Jewish Chronicle about how I came to write the book:


Seems like a week ago

So, a week after launching my new novel JACOB'S ADVICE with the good people at Unbound we are 15% funded with almost 60 supporters. All the Early Bird hardbacks have been snapped up, and seven of you are joining me for a Salon Night of heavy literary yak and good red wine... A fine start! A massive thank you to all who have backed the book so far... It means a great deal to me that you've dug deep…
