A special hello to all of you out there,

This is a very special edition of our newsletter – we would normally talk about what’s been happening lately, some horror stories from the industry and so on, usually finishing off with my “and finally” update on my special project… Well this month we have a special announcement to make so we are going to go straight into:

And Finally….

Newcastle Old and New: the story so far?

The Year of the Book, “My Book!”
 
As many will know at the very least from our normal ME PAT newsletters I have been nurturing a very unique ambition to publish and launch a book based on an old school project renamed "Newcastle Old and New: The Story So Far", this will take the form of a rewrite of a “book” from 38 years ago comprising of about 20 stories from the original project and something like 15-16 linked postscripts, poems and funny stories all to do with the fair city of Newcastle upon Tyne.

The official launch of the book will be in October 2015 at the Central Library but in the meantime I am crowd funding the project with Indiegogo; with two distinct aims to gain investment and raise the funds to not only complete the project and realise this ambition but I have a second aim. In my research in rewriting the 1929 North East Coast Exhibition story, I discovered that for every millionth visitor to the event a gold watch was given out, so out there are four gold watches buried out of sight.  So I would like to if sufficient funds are raised to try and track down the stories behind those watches? 

This book will be going on sale “officially” in October 2015 but to get a book reserved early, maybe even with your name in it, or even a unique print of the image featured on the front cover, please follow the link below, If you can invest in this unique project we can at least return the favour in many ways… http://igg.me/at/Newcastle-Old-and-New-Story-So-Far
 
I have below a brief vid with an appeal for investment; a more detailed video is on the indiegogo website with more information about the project, please help if you can, if you cant all I ask is that you pass me onto your contacts.

In twelve years in business the one thing I have learnt more than anything else is that “networking, works!”.
