Most of you who have pre-ordered should have
received your copies by now. Some of you have
been sending in comments some of which I'll add
to the site when the book is published on 1 Sept.
There's a book launch event on 29 Aug at the
Astor Theatre in Deal, 6pm to 8pm, with Dave playing a few songs solo.
You can still order the book through Witchwood
Records (they may still have some numbered signed
copies of the special edition left), and it is
also available via Amazon for pre-order.
