To publish a sequel to the acclaimed story of an iconic dance side that broke the rules, set up a new model in the world of Morris dancing.

Lords of Misrule

Well, a big hello to all you generous supporters. This is my first update on this project, but I thought I would just wait until the halfway point to see where we are. With two weeks left to the closing date, the total pledged stands at just over £1500 from 39 supporters, which is very encouraging, particularly after the false start in July!

 

I thank you all for your support and for the 24 very positive comments – it’s great to see the belief you are sharing in helping the project reach its target and bring this book to publication. It can only happen through you and people like you. At the risk of sounding pushy (what, me?) if you can think of anyone else who might be interested in adding this quirky tome to their bookshelf, please ask them to take a look at the page. I know it is mercenary to think of this as a numbers game, but just supposing each of you were to find one more interested person, we could be on the home straight. Rest assured I will do my bit too. After all, it’s all about networking.

 

Meanwhile, let’s see where we are in a week’s time, but I feel confident that if we can keep the momentum going, we will reach that target and I can instruct the publisher to go ahead! Something to look forward to!
