I am always interested in writers of local history and came across a book by Brian Stringer from Walsall Wood called 'The Clayhanger Kid' which he had self published. If you can get a copy of this book it is well worth a read and while it is set earlier than my book I can relate to many of the things he talks about.
I have just read that he had a book signing in a library yesterday which was very well attended and enjoyed by many.
I do still have a few copies of my book available if any readers are interested - the book is called 'A bang or a Whimper' and is available from me directly for the princely sum of £10 which includes post and packing.
I recently sent one to an old school chum up in Northumberland and he emailed me to say that it was the best tenner he had spent in ages.
