Been feeling another possible book coming on. You may have noticed I've been annoying you with lots of stuff about brewing in Newark. There will doubtless come a point when I've enough material for a small book. Though it will have rather niche appeal. But that's the great thing about self-publishing through Lulu - it doesn't matter how small sales are, books are still the same price.
I've been a bit lazy this year. I've only released four books. If you've been counting, you may think: "What's the fourth book?" Because it isn't generally available. A little thing called Xmas! that's for my family only.
I know I've at least one reader who would be interested in a book about Newark brewing. You know who I mean, John.
It's been an odd experience learning more about the brewers and breweries of Newark. And the important role they palyed in the town, both economically and politically. By the time I moved to the town the latter had gone. But there were still two substantial breweries in the town and - when combined with malting - brewing was still of great economic value.
