Dear Supporters

The BH weekend is drawing to a close. It’s been sunny here in the Peak District, and the honeybees have been collecting brick-red pollen from the horse chestnut tree. The blossom on the apple trees looks promising.

                A BIG thank you to everyone who has supported The Trail so far. The book has reached 15% funding in the first five days which is a great start.

                Several people have asked why it’s called The Trail. It hasn’t always – the book started life as Missing, then changed to Missing in Nepal. I finally settled on The Trail for three reasons. It suggests both a police trail of evidence and also a footpath in the mountains. It’s also an intertextual nod to one of my favourite authors Cormac McCarthy, and his book The Road.

Please do share the link to The Trail with anyone you think might be interested.

Thank you
