A few months ago I had an idea for a blog article……an A to Z of all the old Island places that have disappeared or are disappearing: schools, streets, firms, churches, buildings, etc.
That turned out to be a lot more work than I expected (the MS Word document property page says I have spent many hundreds of hours on it). I realized quickly it would be too long for a blog article, but carried on anyway with no real idea of what I would do with it in the end.
Well, it turned into a book (albeit a small one) and I decided to self-publish it, and sell it on Amazon. It’s not going to make me rich – that’s not the point anyway – I am just enjoying seeing the book in print, with an ISBN number, and “Author: Mick Lemmerman” on the Amazon product page. Here’s a link to that page. I don’t feel entirely comfortable about advertising here, but on the other hand it is probably just the kind of book that is of interest to those who read this blog?
