Some time ago, I received an e-mail from JR Southall, who’d not only enjoyed my Doctor Who book Desperately Seeking Susan Foreman, but told me that my efforts had actually provided part of the inspiration to compile a book of his own.
It was flattering to say the least that my attempt at writing and self-publishing a book had been appreciated – perhaps more so by someone I didn’t know.
Anyway, that “inspiration” has now been turned into a fan anthology entitled You and Who (published by Miwk Publishing), a collection of stories and memories from Doctor Who fans of all ages. My copy arrived today (with my article included) and a very kind name-check in the introduction... and I quote: “the tone of the prose was delightful...”
Well I couldn’t agree more!
As with that first edition of Desperately Seeking Susan Foreman, You and Who is being sold to raise funds for Children in Need – congratulations JR, I really hope it does well and for more details, please visit the publisher’s web site: www.miwkpublishing.com
And finally, for anyone from Mwik Publishing who is reading this and looking to support a certain aspiring author who is hoping his break will come in 2013... www.richardkirby.org is your link... you are welcome to contact me... mainly because it’ll stop me pestering you!
All my own work... almost.
