Hot off the Press - an odd boy

Today we received the first printed copy of Doc Togden's an odd boy.  This is the start of the next phase of book production.

We aim to catch as many errors as we can before we send the book for printing but we usually find something once the first copy appears.  We'll now be reading the book from cover to cover once more.  This enables us to review the printed book and make any final adjustments.  It's also an opportunity to catch any remaining errors.

We now have 123 people reading a pre-publication version of an odd boy with a view to writing reviews.  We're happy to make more copies available to any keen reviewers and to people in the arts and music media who would like to follow the story of an odd boy.

Please contact  if you would like to review an odd boy.

Extracts from an odd boy can be read on the website
