Alan,

I can confirm that Victoria's Harvest was not released on 28th March.

It shouldn't be too long though - I hope!

Alan,

There's an insight on the publisher's website please see:
http://www.helion.co.uk/Victoria-s-harvest-the-Irish-soldier-in-the-zulu-war-of-1879.html

Without letting too much out of the bag there should be some things that haven't previously been unearthed in the volume.

AMB,

Publication date 28th April 2016!

A book launch is scheduled for 19th May 2016 at the North Down Museum, Bangor, Northern Ireland. Unfortunately ill-health means I will not be attending.

John,

Sorry you're crook; I hope things get better soon. Maybe you could do with some Queensland sun?

Do you / will you have signed copies available?

All the best,

AMB

AMB,

I'm afraid I will have to pass on the arrangements that publishers might have in hand regarding signed copies.

The doc' will not allow a flight to Aldergrove, so I think Queensland is out of the question.

I hope things are resolved by June as I meant to be in Canada and the U.S.A.'s 49th State.

Regards,

John

John,

Ack all.

Hope trip to the Colonies (and the USA) all goes well. Sadly yet to do the 49th state, but have seen a bit of Canada and it's great! Enjoy!

Kind regards,
