Second interview

Don visited my again last week where we did the second and final interview for the new chapter. I am currently typing up the interview and adding it to the chapter. Hopefully, I'll be able to send the chapter to the proof readers later this week.

Today I finished listening to the tape recordings of my interview with Don and typing it up in a rough draft. Happy birthday to Dave Hill, by the way!

First interview

I had a visit from Don yesterday and I did the first interview with him for the new chapter that we're making for the paperback version of "Look Wot I Dun". Now I'll write up what I got and then we'll probably meet again in early April.

Preparations for an interview

Don and I are going to meet next week for me to interview him about the past five years. I'm currently hunting down my old dictaphone on which I've made all interviews with Don and everybody else for the biography and when I've found it, I'm going to think of questions to ask Don.

Finished reading

By now I have finished reading Don's diaries as he only keeps a tour diary nowadays, not a day-to-day diary like before. I've had a look at his website too, but I think I have to get the rest of the material from Don himself.

A visit from Don Powell

Don visited me today, bringing his diaries with him. There was only four, though, 2013 and 2016-2018. 2014 and 2015 are missing so I have to find other sources to fill the gaps in these years.

It was nice seeing Don again, as we hadn't seen each other since the Danish book signings in November 2013 after which I fell ill and had to undergo surgery three times in three years. We had a bit of a laught, though, when first we saw each other, Don with his walking frame due to his knee surgery and me with my cruthes do to mine! What are the odds?

After close to five years of silence, I'm back as Omnibus Press wants to make a paperback version of Don's biography and I am to write a new chapter for it.

Don’t forget that the biography is available as an e-book on Amazon.co.uk:

I just got the sales figures the other day and where the hardcover version has sold 5,000+ copies, the e-book version has only sold 100, so please spread the word. Thank you.
