A NEW LIMITED EDITION OF MY FIRST BOOK 'THE LINK'

My first book The Link was first published in 1974, unbelievably almost 50 years ago, and it remained in print until fairly recently. However, public interest in it has never waned and a new generation is interested in my story. 

I have published a new edition for everyone who has found that even battered old copies on eBay are no longer available - or for those who would simply like an updated 21st century copy! 

We have produced a special high-quality limited hardback edition of only 250 copies, each of which I will sign and number. Printed on 115 gsm paper, complete with a marker ribbon, it contains over 40 illustrations many of which are previously unpublished. Half of these are in colour - the original copies of The Link had only black and white photographs some of which, although of their time, were poor quality. 

I’m indebted to Abby Freeley (a follower of my Facebook page) who gave her time to completely transcribe the book so that we could start afresh with a newly typeset text which now looks much more up to date. 

A high quality book is costly to produce and although it would have been cheaper to have printed it in China, we’ve kept the whole project in this country. It is priced at £25 plus postage and packaging. Please note that you may be charged extra by your country's Customs Department depending on where you are based.

We will be sending the books out week beginning 13th December 2021

WHEN THE QUEEN READ “THE LINK” ON HER SUMMER HOLIDAY 

Ten books for each of the seven decades of the Queen’s reign have been selected by a panel of librarians, booksellers and literature experts from readers’ recommendations spanning 31 countries. 

The ‘Big Jubilee Read’ includes “brilliant, beautiful and thrilling writing” in novels, anthologies of short stories and poetry published since 1952, say the organisers. They were “shared stories that define our social and cultural heritage.” 

In the late 1970s I was involved in healing sessions with the late Sir Angus Ogilvy who was married to the Queen’s cousin, Princess Alexandra. For a while I came to know them quite well as they invited me for dinner on several occasions to Thatched House Lodge, their residence in Richmond Park. 

On one occasion they had joined the royal family aboard HMS Britannia for a summer holiday, taking with them a copy of my newly-published first book “The Link”. As soon as Princess Alexandra had finished reading it, the Queen asked for it and avidly read it from cover to cover. 

Whilst understandably “The Link” doesn’t appear on ‘The Big Jubilee Read’, I’m enormously flattered and proud to know that Her Majesty actually read it.
