Adventures in Yellow – Ten Years On!

New Year’s Day 2014: I’m sitting here finding it hard to believe it is now exactly ten years ago when it all came together, our best laid plans came to fruition and our Pan-American Adventure was finally a go!

Bradford!

May Day Bank Holiday – the promise of a wet weekend on the latest ride to take the two books up north to Bradford. A quick scan of Wikipedia tells me that the city lies at the junction of three valleys which explains why my mate Dave in work (who hails from this hallowed ville) […]

A Success for Adventures in Yellow at Waterstone's St Albans

Success at St Albans Waterstone’s!

A wet Saturday morning in St Albans.  Maggie and I ducked into Waterstone’s to get out of the rain that had eased to a steady downpour.  One of my favourite bookshops, so the rain wasn’t that much of an excuse.  There was a guy sat at a table signing books.  He was nobody famous and his book […]

Please Release Me!

Saturday 6th August:  D-Day for Adventures in Yellow when the 2 books were finally to be set loose into the big wide world.  A bookstore launch seemed obvious but we’d been advised that this weekend, at the start of the summer hols, might be a bit quiet so we confidently set out for the ‘Skylark […]
