Fingers Crossed!

After what seems to have been an unreasonably long time spent tinkering with forms, the latest book submission for Sense and Sentimentality is off to the publishers. Now to wait and see…

Meanwhile, I’ve been working on another book repair. This time Captain Sidney Galtrey’s The Horse and the War. Published in 1918, when materials were in short supply, it isn’t the most robustly constructed book ever. It does, however, have some lovely (and very interesting) Lionel Edwards illustrations in it amongst other things. Again, some work is being put into getting it back into shape.

This time, I don’t altogether blame my ‘PhDing’, so much as the numerous trips to China and back The Horse and the War has been forced to withstand over the last four and a half years. I am fairly certain Captain Galtrey would never have anticipated that his book would rack up quite that many air miles!!!

P.S. Yes, the post-its were me. Sorry!!!! (Now safely removed.)
