William Earl's and my book!
Do you remember back in March I posted on visiting the London Book Fair to sell the book? Well, I met three publishers and one of them, Ian Bayley of Sabrestorm Publishing, made an offer there and then. This is why,
"From the many manuscripts and book ideas we receive on a regular basis, ‘Blood & Bandages’ stood out. A terrific first-hand account of the stresses of army life in the RAMC combined with the pressures of being away from home and those you love. Liz Coward expertly weaves in the historical background of William’s experiences and the additional photographs (many of them from William's personal album) ensured that I couldn’t put the book down."
Since then, William, Ian and I have finished the book, found additional photos and moved onto the final proofing and editing stage. It's been a long, hard journey and there have been moments when I thought it couldn't be done, but it's almost there and already selling on Amazon and Casemate.
The book will be launched in April 2017 and between now and then I'd love to share the story of its development. I'd better dash now because I've got to get back to proofing every coma, hyphen, and word in Blood and Bandages.
Thanks for dropping by and see you on 1st November.
Ta-ra for now.
