Proofs approved

100 Dates

The work on The Swansea Book of Dates has been completed. Text checked, illustrations agreed, cover approved. I think the cover is quite smart. There is a sixties feel to it. I am told to expect publication in March 2015. It will retail at £7.99, though of course I will be much cheaper than that. As always I shall keep you informed.

Swansea in the 1950s

I have reached an agreement for a new book with Amberley Publishing – Swansea in the 1950s. I have to complete it by April 2015 and it will be published a couple of months later. I still have to complete The Swansea Book of Days – but it is good to have something to move on to!

The Swansea Book of Days

It is now time to start my next book – especially since this one to can be pre-ordered on Amazon already. It is called The Swansea Book of Days and it is a really simple concept. Three incidents from the history of Swansea for each day of the year.  There is plenty of research to be done!

I have seen in the news the admission that modern art works stolen by the Nazis have been found and work by Picasso has been mentioned.  Now something that will definitely will get into the book is the fact that child refugees from Guernica were accommodated in Swansea during the Spanish Civil War – and of course Picasso’s painting Guernica is one of the great pieces of the twentieth century. The children arrived in May/June 1937. All I need now is a date….

I will let you know
