When I started this Substack I never imagined it would attract much interest, but my first year of writing has been a pleasant shock. The feedback from all of you has been truly humbling and wonderful and I am forever grateful. I’ve written somewhere in the region of 90k words, and although I trust Substack to not start cancelling or banning writers, I would hate to see this much work essentially disappear. After asking my twitter followers and friends, I’ve decided to turn this year’s work into a book. A self-published paperback and ebook, split into different topics - anthropology, archaeology, history and so on, as well as some new articles that I haven’t published. My aim is to have it out in the autumn.
I will buy
Will definitely buy. My heirs will be obliged to keep it in the family.
Not a paid subscriber yet, but I will buy the book!
That is excellent news. You do write well but after decades in journalism I know it is not possible to sub one's own copy and after years working as a manuscript editor, I also know that a professional edit is required. Make sure you get someone to do that work before you self-publish. There are professional editing groups in all States although in the age of the internet it is less critical to have someone local. Best of luck.
Proud of you, brother. I hope your book sells by the boatload!
We’re all looking forward to the knowledge you have to offer.
