an odd boy by Doc Togden : seeking pre-publication reviewers

Volume One of an odd boy, by Doc Togden is now being prepared for publication. Although that means, in practice, that there will still be a few months before the book is launched, we are seeking pre-publication reviews and endorsements, so that we have a good number of commentaries on the book before it is launched. A pre-publication review copy should be available by the beginning of March.

Volume one of an odd boy is a memoire of an eccentric aficionado of Bach and Blues, poetry and painting. A portrait of the artist as a lad, set in the experimental cultural ferment of the late 1960s. It is a coming-of-age adventure, both surreal and innocent, humorous and poignant, depicting an era when the Arts set a generation’s imagination on fire. The author’s life is a rare roulette wheel of childhood wonder and tragic debacles; a debilitating stammer and a powerful singing voice; bad luck and fierce good fortune. At 16 he’s traveled far in human experience from the midnight expedition he made to the crossroads at the age of 12.

If you are able to write a review we would be looking for your permission to publish it, and also asking whether you would be willing to publish it on Amazon and similar places when the book becomes available.

If you are interested in writing a review of an odd boy please write to arobooksworldwide@gmail.com and we will let you know when a pre-publication version of the book is available.
