Today’s blog is a bit of a request for help... not exactly a cry for help, well not yet anyway...
I’ve written quite a few books now; the subjects have been varied (from Marilyn Monroe to Coronation Street, astronauts to rugby league), but this is specifically about my Doctor Who offering – and about me.
Desperately Seeking Susan Foreman 3 will be the third and final edition of my quest to obtain a signed photograph from all the female TARDIS companions. Running alongside the search is a history of the programme written in my own... er... personal style.
The first edition was sold to raise funds for Children in Need and I’d be more than happy for this book to have a charitable aim as well. I am probably more proud of this book than any of my others but I’m well aware that self-publishing with printer’s postal costs added to the book price is prohibitive as far as significant sales are concerned.
So I have two questions... requests...
Would anyone be willing to write a few lines about me, my writing style, or my books (honesty is preferable, but I’ll happily accept exaggeration and white lies!!!) that might convince someone to “take a chance”? If so, my e-mail address is email@example.com and it would mean a lot if you would be prepared to spend just a few minutes to help an ageing writer...
And secondly, does anyone know a publisher, or know of anyone who knows anyone etc who knows a publisher who might at least consider taking on this project? I’ve written to several people/companies over these past months, but sadly the answers have all been variations on a theme – and that theme was “no”!
Please feel free to share the link... and thank you in anticipation of your e-mails, help or advice. I’m about three quarters of the way through the rewrite and if there’s any interest at all, the book will be finished by the middle of May.
From me and Jenna-Louise, thank you so much xx
All my own work... almost.
