The Montgenevre Book Club!

Early readers are posting reviews on Amazon. Here's one:-

This is a brilliant (political?) sci-fi story that takes you in head-first in the first chapter. From what's certain to be an apocalypse leading to a decision to recreate the space race of the last century, this story has a perfect balance of tension and humour at the right moments. Some of the jokes are very subtle, and I didn't notice at first but laughed when I imagined the potential meanings, and had to laugh again when I realised it was intended. It does seem to be ever so subtly making a parody of the world we live in, and I just love it. Imagine politics crossed with science, and make it into a drama - this gives you that. The author is clearly scientifically minded, and definitely did his homework - which makes it feel very vivid. At the same time, anyone could enjoy it as it would appeal to a wide audience, I believe, as it is very gripping. I anticipate a sequel!

I hope this will encourage supporters to get reading and please note - Book sales are driven by Amazon and these reviews are really important. The more reviews the more they will push it. I'd love to see your honest reviews posted. Feed back is really important and they don't have to be long.

Interesting plot line, well written and kept me engaged all the way through. The illustrations are wonderful and really add to the experience

So if you're enjoying the story and can spare a couple of minutes please go to -

This book was gripping from start to finish; also loved the fact that there are great illustrations all the way through- this really adds to the experience. As an avid sci-fi fiend; It is totally my genre; I can't help thinking that it would also make a great film. The characters are really believable and likeable, and the storyline is so imaginative and gripping with quite a lot of tongue in cheek humour... looking forward to Dransfield's second book!

Please note: - If you missed the launch, we are having an opening evening this Friday 28th Feb at:-

Launch Party

Great night last night!

Friday, 8 February 2019

Here's a few photos of last night's book launch, it was great fun.

It was also the first time we had an event in our new unit off Bermondsey Street and it was great!

1a Morocco Street London SE1 3HB

Lovely to see so many friends and if you missed it, please call in or come tonight (Friday 8th) when we are having an open evening for our neighbours.



Yes it's happening! & Last chance to support!

117 people have shown their generosity in backing this novel and their help and support has enabled it to get to this stage.

Today my publishers confirm that 7th February 2019 will be the publication date. They also sent over the final book cover which looks fanastic. 

Important dates - 

6th January - This is when the supporter's subscriptions close. This is the last chance to become part of the family of backers of this novel. Do please tell friends and family of the benefits of their support. They will not only have their names in print as supporters, they can still have the chance of all the other benefits like the archtectural consulations or a signed print of one of the fantastic illustrations. It also helps fund the publicity costs to make this book a great success. (Patrons can always upgrade to these levels too - before the 6th).

Thursday 7th February - Private View -  Patrons only preview of the original illustrations and my chance to say thank you directly to you. Venue - Studio M 1a Morocco Street London SE1 3HB - Start time 5.30pm onward (but don't worry if you are late!)

Friday 8th February - Public opening and opportunity for friends to come who can't make it on the 7th. 

We are also working on the website and will send you all a link to it within the next few days. Feedback would be great!

The exhibition and the copy of the book will be a great opportunity for those supporters who have pledged for a print or original to make their choices. There are over 90 illustrations to choose from. For those 19 people who have not yet had their architectural consultions we shall be over to you soon.

Looking forward to having the actual book in circulation - and the party!!
