The Forest is blooming

We are out of print. I sent for another delivery by the publishers’ CEO died suddenly in office. I have sympathised with them. They have served me well so I suggested that another delivery could wait a few weeks. The Forest is still available on the internet. My main reason for pushing sales is not to profit but to recoup sufficient to print the next book – the revision of

A Song at Rainbow’s End.     What do I hope to achieve with this? The book should have twice as many pages. There should be more vital characterisation and should be designed to suggest to young people the need to look out for their peers in relation to drugs. It is the story of a gang (or crew of a boat) who come to Western Australia on holiday and find their  disrupted plans include rescuing a pop-idol, a shady chauffeur, a crazy but brilliant pianist and a West Australian farm.
