What happened when Joshua Jones fell asleep in the cemetery?

This clip is filmed in Highgate Cemetery where Karl Marx is buried. You are officially not allowed to film in the cemetery but no one can stop you putting your camera on the pavement outside and filming through the bars. And no one can stop a man talking to himself whilst apparently on a visit. It was just a coincidence that the camera happened to be pointing at the man when he was speaking.

Apologies for the terrible jokes at the end of this clip. I expected Hannah, the editor, to cut them out but for some reason she quite likes these unguarded moments. Either that or she wants me to look like a twit! 

A few people have asked me if the book is actually written yet and when will supporters receive it. The book is indeed finished and I will start editing with the wonderful Liz Garner once I'm funded. She is an author in her own right and I'm so lucky to have her as my editor. I have already been through several drafts. After each draft I give the book to a couple of people to read and use the feedback to write the next draft. I did the same thing with Random Acts of Heroic Love. 

The exact date that you will get this depends on how quickly I reach my target. I'm at 46% today 22 April, so I have every confidence that we will get there.
