Just in – Amy’s Bookshelf Review

4 stars
Such a grand journey
Kay pens an unimaginable journey in Show Me The Way To Santiago. This is the first book of the Author’s that I’ve read. The path travelled is the route of the Via De la Plata from Seville to Santiago, a distance of 1,006 kilometres, in north west Spain. Kay tells of his journey, his adventures and those who he met, and who shared their own personal stories. It’s more than just a journey, it’s a pilgrimage, and I think it’s amazing that he had the stamina to walk all that way. It’s a very interesting read, and he wrote about his travels, wonderfully. I look forward to reading more by this Author. Show Me The Way To Santiago is a definite recommendation by Amy’s Bookshelf Reviews.

Thank you Amy Shannon

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 30 April 2020

A great read to while away the long Lockdown days. Peter’s memoir takes you on a journey of discovery, which is scenic, spiritual, poignant and funny, (tears rolling down my eyes at the thought of two grown men tumbling down a hillside). It’s a story support and friendships new and old built up along the way. Thank you Peter for sharing your pilgrimage, it was a delight to read.

Show Me The Way To Santiago and MND Society

All my ‘profits’ from the sales of Show Me The Way to Santiago will be going to support the work of the Motor Neurone Disease Society (MND). I lost a good friend to MND last October. Christine was also my unofficial book salesperson in the North East, having persuaded many friends, fellow knitters and others to purchase my first book A Pennine Way Odyssey. Her husband Trevor, had walked the last three legs of the Pennine Way with me. Trevor and Christine had been good friends for 10 years and she is still sorely missed. Release date of SHOW ME THE WAY TO SANTIAGO is still 2 days away, but already pre-order sales have raised nearly £100 for MND

Show Me The Way To Santiago – update

I collected a hard copy of the book yesterday from my publisher. We are now both going through it with a fine tooth comb to make any final adjustments, before it heads to the printers. As soon as I have a publication date and a date by which pre-orders can be made I will post a further update.

In the current coronavirus pandemic situation a number of provisional book – launch events have had to be put on hold. Rachael, my editor and publisher of Curious Cat Books will be rescheduling some of these events in the fullness of time, when we are advised it is safe to do so.

Book Cover

Currently mulling over options for book cover design and will share options with fellow writers this week. Hope to have agreed design by the weekend. This will facilitate discussions and agreements for a date of publication next month and also a prior date, when pre-orders of Show Me The Way To Santiago will be able to be placed.
