About me

I’m a cyclist! Always have been and hopefully always will be. But I’m also a lover of those quirky, humorous travelogues that meander comically from one minor adventure to the next. So writing about a long-distance cycling trip across Europe seemed the natural thing to do once my small-time odyssey was over. When not on the saddle, I teach French at a secondary school in southern England although my roots are further north in the heart of Pennine Yorkshire. One day I may return, who knows, but for the moment I shall continue to try extol the virtues of everything francophone to my pupils in Oxfordshire while planning my next pan-European adventure… Read more about me & my (mainly) cycling-related thoughts at www.cyclingeurope.org

I just updated the cover for Good Vibrations. Could you confirm that everything is OK (it's a long time since I changed anything with the book). Once you give me the nod, I'll buy an author copy to check it's OK (not sure if the update to the printers is immediate or not). Thanks, Andrew (more) and earned+3

I just put in an order for 10 copies of my book, Good Vibrations. In light of recent delivery problems, could you keep an eye on it and make sure it has in fact been processed after a day or so. I'm hoping for delivery to my home address by the end of this week as I am on holiday... Thanks. Andrew (more) and bagged+3

They need to ask the US office (6hrs behind) about it. Options are I can raise the order again now or if you don't mind waiting until the end of the day we'll have a definitive answer as to whether they have received/dispatched it.
