The copies are in the post to the British Library and the books are registered with Nielsen and the books are available on-line at Amazon, W H Smiths et al so I can safely say these three books are now published by Four Point Press!
‘Deployed’ (978-0-9568999-5-8 RRP £6) is a collection of poems spanning multiple deployments in sandy places by a member of my close family. It is not war poetry as such, though it is inspired by a period of armed conflict overseas. I know nothing about what it is like out there, but much about the waiting at home and the gap in the family when a loved one is serving in a dangerous place. The writing develops over a period of 2 years and spreads the focus from my own family to consideration of others’, on both sides of the conflict.
Chobham’s Olympic Links (978-0-9568999-6-5 RRP £6) is a collection of the stories collected about Chobhammers who played their part in making London 2012 Olympic games such a great success. I collected these as part of my official BT Olympic Storyteller antics. It is a mixture of poetry, interviews, articles and colour photographs.
Chobham Celebrates (978-0-9568999-4-1 RRP £5) is a slim, colourful collection of ditties and photographs chronicling the Chobham Diamond Jubilee street party from dawn to dusk. It tells of British stalwart qualities in the face of summer rain as well as the joy of community coming together to celebrate. Jill Taylor and I collaborated to record the day.
Any of these books can be bought direct from me at £1 less than the RRP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Postage is at current second class rate and packaging is free.
