The launch for Lucky Genes by Dr Jean Watkins was held in the village of Burley in the New Forest in October. Friends, family, neighbours, former colleagues and patients of the author turned out in force and made the event a great success.

Peter Lawless: From Miner to Major

It is no secret that many of our authors come to us through personal recommendation. Peter Lawless, whose book Miner to Major was launched in November, came to us through his old friend, fellow military man and Yorkshireman Peter Horsfall. Major Horsfall’s book Hard to Believe Too Old At Sixteen was first published in 1999. Major Lawless’ book launch gave our managing director Lynn Davidson the chance to meet both men for the first time.
