AVAC2C Update

I have just finished writing the first draft of A Very Alternative Coast to Coast. I am going to have a break from it for a few weeks and pick up the task of self-editing and rewriting in January. I would hope to be working with my publisher on it by April next year.

£300 now raised for MND

Book sales of Show Me The Way To Santiago have been steady, but have now reached 50 in all formats/outlets and the amount raised for the MND Association has just passed the £300 mark. This is without being able to hold any of the planned book launch and/or book reading events.

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.

Steady sales

10 days after the release of Show Me The Way To Santiago and so far I have dealt with 23 book orders and have sold 3 Kindle versions. The total raised for MND stands at just over £150. I plan to release a number of short video clips of extracts from the book over the coming weeks.

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.
