Advance Copy

I have received an advanced copy of my next book, Welsh History, Strange but True. The designers at History Press have done an excellent job. It looks very good indeed. 190 pages of idiocy and mayhem, Hard back too. Cover price is £9.99. I believe that it will be published in April

Available from April 2014

Looks like April

I have checked the proofs of Welsh History Strange but True and sent them back. I am very pleased with how it has turned out. Having checked it all I am pleased to report that I have been rude to quite a few places in Wales. It is good to be even-handed. And it is a hardback too!

History Press tell me that it should be published in April 2014

Welsh History Strange but True


Here is the cover of my next book. Welsh History Strange but True. I have the proofs to check next week and then publication is set for March 2014. I think it looks quite good to be honest.

Welsh History – Strange but True

I have finally submitted by first draft of my next book – Welsh History – Strange but True. It is a stroll through the neglected undergrowth of Welsh History from the Neanderthals right up to the Second World War.

It is full of odd stories and useless information.  You can find out about  WW1 “Q” ships, the naming of America, a botched Roman dental extraction, alien abduction in Neath,  what happens if you hug a seamstress – all sorts of things that will make you proud to be Welsh – or indeed pleased that you are not.

I believe that it is due to be published in March 2014 – indeed you can, I am told, already pre-order it from Amazon. It is a good job that I have submitted it.

Swansea Book of Days

Pleased to report that I have received and returned my contract from History Press for a new book – The Swansea Book of Days. I am to deliver the text in June 2014 and it will be released in 2015. Before then I have to complete and submit Welsh History. Strange but True, probably for the end of October 2013. Best crack on, then.
