My travel memoir, Is This the Road to Stratford?, has now been published with Amazon for three months. Time to celebrate! For 5 days, from Thursday 15th June till Monday 19th June, I am offering the Ebook for nothing – zilch – FREE.
In 2011, I landed in Manchester. In a malevolent rental car, baffled by indecipherable road signs and huge roundabouts, I journeyed from Yorkshire through Derbyshire, Warwickshire and Oxfordshire, to London.
On the way, I discovered medieval cities and great heritage estates;
pretty villages, pubs and chicken and leek pie;
a castle where Robin Hood could actually have fought it out with the Sheriff of Nottingham;
and the mighty home where Miss Elizabeth Bennet fell for a dripping Mr Darcy, fresh from his dip in the lake.
In Oxford, I wandered the streets, soaked in history and academia.
I communed with my favourite authors, the Brontes
and Charles Dickens,
and slaked my thirst for theatre in Stratford-Upon-Avon
and London’s West End.
I learnt a lot along the way: that it’s unpleasant being woken on an aeroplane by a cup of boiling tea down your front; that you can’t smuggle a bottle of water through security at Kuala Lumpur airport; that you can see theatre in London for half the price of Melbourne; that Harrods is seriously weird, and that you need a university education (preferably at Oxford) to understand English road signs.
Is This the Road to Stratford? is book three in my Planning to the ‘Nth series. To download a free copy from Amazon, click here. The exact start or end of the promotion can vary, depending on where you are in the world. In Australia and surrounds, it will go through till Tuesday.
