Few days on from the last entry, and time to start telling what I am doing now, rather than reprising the past.
At present the focus of my writing activity is a book entitled “Footballers’ Lives”. This provides biographical sketches of some of the world’s greatest footballers – including Pele, Alfredo di Stefano, Diego Maradona, George Best, Eusebio, Gary Lineker, David Beckham, Paul Gascoigne, Bryan Robson, Johan Cruyff, Zinedine Zidane, and Eric Cantona. In the course of the book, developments from the origins of organised football in the nineteenth century, through to the mass appeal, and increasing commercial importance, of the present-day game are traced. The relative obscurity of the footballers of the past has given way to a position where the leading stars of the game are celebrities with worldwide reputations
Well that is the plan…may post some of the book here as it progresses.
Alongside this work I am busy with publicity for “Legends of British History”, which is going quite well. Book has received 5 star review on Amazon, and relevant chapter has been featured on Samuel Pepys’ diary website. The story of this book is unfolding on the Wessex Publishing website.
Back again soon with more.
