I know how much the adaptation of Jane Austen's last novel has touched and captivated you. I loved writing the Sanditon Review and the Brean Beach Story. Now I hope that a printed, collectable copy of the Review will provide a treasured memento that you can enjoy whenever you want to revisit and relive highlights from Jane Austen's intriguing final novel about coming of age, entrepreneurship and Austen's first bi-racial heroine.

I apologise for the delay in re-starting this campaign. I am in recovery from severe anaemia.  We are facing many challenges due to a lack of support from the government for the creative sector during the pandemic. The only answer is to keep doing what I love and to be a Scheherazade journalist extraordinaire with a thousand and one stories and more to tell and then keep going!

You can now snap up the Sanditon Review as a reward again in support of quality independent arts journalism. We have experienced the most challenging and difficult year imaginable. Out of such challenging times, we are focusing on writing and broadcasting stories on culture from film, drama and books to real food and circular fashion to convey stories that matter with integrity, passion, experience and a love for old school, magazine journalism.  

We hope you love the result.
