Hope you're all well
Just a very quick note to say we're doing an event in Glasgow on March 22nd as part of something called The Aye Write Festival.
I'll be joined by former guest Chris Deerin who once described Roger Daltrey as a "loss to bricklaying".
Tickets are available here
Hope to see you there
Hope you're all keeping well.
Now then, how often do get to buy someone a book for Christmas with YOUR name in it?
Also, wouldn't it be good if, other than your name, there was some way of me personalising the book and writing a special message in it to whoever is receiving it for Christmas.
Imagine their little (or big) faces on Christmas Day!
For details of how to…
You should all have recieved a copy of our book by now - some of you may have even read it.
So firstly, a huge thanks to all 934 of you that pledged to make it happen. You're welcome to come round anytime and have a cup of tea on me, just not all at once - I don't have that much room, or milk.
Organise it amongst yourselves, elect a leader or something, someone's who's good…
You might remember pledging to support a book about people listening to albums for the first time. It would have been some time after the Normans invaded us, but when we were still a part of Europe and America hadn't elected a man who talks like Jimmy Two Times from Goodfellas.
Anyway that book, the one you pledged for ages ago, is due to be released this September.
Hope you've had a good summer and won lots of medals.
Just a quick note from us to let you know we've just done a podcast with the comedian Michael Legge. We discussed how the album club was formed, what album inspired it,and what, if anything, we were trying to achieve with the whole enterprise.
If that isn't enough for you (it is) we also talked about Marillion for a bit.
So, you're probably all wondering where that book is that you pledged for some months ago.
Well, now that our weekly editions are over, I can announce that books should (hopefully) be with you around October 2017.
I can also announce that each chapter will be illustrated and, from what I've seen so far, I can safely say these will be the best thing in the book.
I can further announce there…
Apparently, it isn't a real shed.
I know, I'm gutted too because I thought I was getting some free garden equipment out of this.
No, instead it's virtual. You're supposed to imagine me writing in the shed and occasionally updating you on this book project - something I will attempt to do in the upcoming weeks and months.
Still wish it was an actual shed to be honest.
