STRAWBSWEBNEWS - JULY 2014 PART 1
Sent by Dick Greener, 15 July 2014
A quickie on the new Strawbswebnews system to bring you up to speed on a couple of things.
* Exorcising Ghosts - book update
* Acoustic Strawbs Canada dates
EXORCISING GHOSTS - BOOK UPDATE
The books were delivered last week and Dave spent a day at the warehouse on Friday signing and numbering the bookplates.
The bookplates are delivered loose with the book: Dave has signed and numbered them, but you then write your own name in under "EX LIBRIS", remove the backing and stick them in the book yourself. Mine is on the right hand page inside the hard cover - see picture on Strawbsweb front page.
Last few pre-sale copies available
A few of the limited run pre-sale copies with the bookplate are still available. You can order them from the address below and they'll be despatched before publication date on 1 Sept.
Book launches - UK
There's a book launch party to be held on Friday 29 August at the Astor Theatre in Deal, between 6pm and 8pm (though I'd imagine there'll be a sojourn to one pub or another afterwards). There'll be a few solo songs from Dave and copies of the book for purchase and signing (or you can bring your own ..)
Book launches - Canada and US
Dave is hoping to be able to organise events for Canada (to coincide with the Toronto shows later this year (see below) and a trip to New York, no date as yet. More news as I have it.
