Early Bird: Rock and Roll Paraphernalia

As a music critic, Neil is the recipient of an apparently unending supply of CDs, records and other promotional material.

For 50 early bird supporters, Neil will send a pack of ten hand selected promo CDs and one piece of promo memorabilia. Plus (on publication) a signed first edition hardback, ebook edition and your name in back of book.
Only 70 available.
