Peter Kay – Show me the way to Santiago Interview on BCB radio 24-04-2020
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
I am happy to announce that Show Me The Way To Santiago will be available from the 18th April. All my profits from the sales of the book will go to the Motor Neurone Disease Society (MND)
The paperback version will retail at £17.99 from Amazon and other on-line book selling outlets.
Sales from this route will contribute around £2 per book to the MND.
A kindle version is available for £6.99.
This will contribute £2.40 per book to MND.
I will be purchasing a number of books myself, in order to provide books for friends and family and to provide signed copies. (upon request). Some of these books will be available for future book launch events, when circumstances allow.
Such signed copies will be available for £14.50 plus postage.
This arrangement will contribute £5 per book to the MND.

Date for publication is 18th April. This would have been my father’s 100th birthday. Pre-orders of the book are now being taken
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.
The LeedsLitFest event (From Darkness into Light) at the Adelphi pub in Leeds in two days time, is sold out. My monologue about living with my dead mother-in-law for sixteen years will be performed, along with ten other short (5 minute) pieces. Good luck to all the other performers and writers. If the night is as good as last year it will be a memorable one for the ninety people who will witness all the performances.
A very enjoyable and productive two hours spent in Hull this evening with David Windle (Director) and Stan Haywood (Actor), rehearsing my monologue “Mother-in-Law” ready for it’s premier at the Adelphi in Leeds on the 5th March.
Looking forward to sharing some new poems at HEART in Headingley tonight
Happy to announce that thanks to my fellow IWG writer and friend David Windle, Stan Haywood is going to perform the monologue at the Adelphi in Leeds on the 5th March. Looking forward to joining David and Stan in Hull very soon to start rehearsals.
Happy to confirm that my entry for the Leeds Pub Theatre Monologue Event has been chosen as one of ten to be performed on the night (5th March 2020). Watch this space for further News updates on this
A brilliant evening of poetry and prose at my local ‘open mike’ evening in Shipley last night.
The range, diversity and excellence of the contributions was truly amazing.
Headline poet Ian Humphreys was brilliant too.
I shared the Prologue from ‘Show Me The Way To Santiago’, which went down very well.
Maybe a couple of months away from publication.
