My book, Empire of Booze, is at the printers. There’s nothing I can do to change anything now. I’m now working on the publicity. Hopefully there should be a few articles and reviews out in November when the book hits the shops. I am aware from my long years in publishing that ‘hit the shops’ means being available online and maybe in a few larger London bookshops rather than sitting at the front of every Waterstone’s in the country.
I’ll be doing some events too. Most will be next year but I will be talking at the Rye Literary Festival on Sunday 25 September at 3pm. Not only will I be talking but there will be excellent cider available courtesy of local producer Norman Hunt. Let’s hope they will be offering their delicious 7.4& Sussex Cider. That will really make the event go with a swing.
So if you’re in East Sussex or Kent come down. Or even if you’re not, come to Rye and make a day of it. It’s about the most beautiful town in England.

You can now order the book on Amazon for £12.99. It’s not as fancy as the Unbound edition but still contains some excellent words.
