I’ve approved final (I hope) revisions for Sheep On The Somme, today. Two editions – paperback and case laminate hardcover – will be released for sale on 16th June 2021.
I’ll no doubt have a bit more to say about this in due course, but for the moment, I’m relieved to have gotten this far.
There is , in fact a third edition – the dustcover/jacket edition – which is also coming, but I have no plan to release it for sale at this point.
I’m also not planning an e-book. The thought of tackling such a large additional project makes me feel weary, so not this time, and no Kindle version.
That means I have limited capacity to provide copies for readers to review, which is a bit of a problem. If any reader if this page is interested in reading and reviewing, let me know and I will happily assemble a PDF version of the book for reviewing purposes. I’ll likely also invite subscribers to my newsletter (which I’ve seriously neglected for some time).
I think this is worthy project that has the capacity to touch readers emotionally, despite the images being more than a hundred years old. now.
If you’d like a refresher, there is a YouTube playlist of readings taken from the collection here.
BTW, I have spoken in the past of perhaps braking the collection that is Sheep On The Somme into 4 separate publications (matching the 4 parts of the book), but I’m not pursuing that idea at present. Too much work for uncertain benefit.
