Book 1 News & Book 2 News

To get an overview about the book click here.

February turned out to the be the most successful month the book has had in over a year. This was no doubt mainly down to the half price promotion of the kindle edition of the book.

One exciting possibility is of someone I approached on twitter and got a potential yes response. It is unlikely that even those who know me well who guess who it is, but if it does come off I will be incredibly happy. It also means I will continue to ask potential subjects as the worst thing that can happen is I get a no...
