Ok, finally ready to offer pre-orders on the new book, Crewe and its People. It's a hardback book, 190 pages, over 200 photos, 40 fascinating stories - £9.99 if you buy now!
Along with another couple of local authors, Mark and Tony, I've decided to publish this myself, as I did with The Gradi Years - nine years ago! So, although that ensures that you retain control of the project, you have all other associated hassles that go with it. One of those is deciding how many to print, as we pay the printer direct! So pre-ordering gets you a few quid off and is a massive help as we go to print.
This phase is for collection only, from the book launch on Friday 27th November at Hops Bar (5pm-7pm), or from Copnal Books on Meredith Street, any Friday or Saturday from November 27th.
Here's what it says on the back:
"Step into the lives of forty Crewe people and explore childhood memories, triumph, heartache and the special moments that have defined a town's recent history. From teachers, musicians and factory workers, to politicians, historians and engine drivers. Crewe and its People criss-crosses lives just as the labyrinth of rail lines still defines the proud, hard-working Cheshire town..."
If you still like the old-fashioned cheque method you can post £9.99 (payable to J. HORNBROOK) to: Crewe and its People, c/o Copnal Books, 18 Meredith Street, Crewe CW1 2PW.
Alternatively, there's an eBay item here where you can follow the PayPal or other cards route. Item number is 230385033563.
There will be another update offering a postal option, but it's a hardback book and will cost a few quid. So local collection will keep a bit of cash in your pocket. If you need any further information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your support...
