A message from member, Richard Davies – his book, After Adlestrop is now available for sale. Here’s what he says about it:
My novel ‘After Adlestrop’ grew out of my poem ‘Leaving Adlestrop’ published in the 2009 Folio. In that I speculated that though Thomas wrote ‘no one came and no-one went’ maybe someone did leave the train. I could not get the idea out of my mind so wrote about a girl who got off to go in search of something new. Years later she gives an account of the extraordinary life she was able to lead as a result. I have self-published using YouWriteOn.com and FeedARead.com because I could not find an agent or a publisher to take it on. It is available from bookshops and Amazon and as an e-book. If anyone is thinking of going down the self-publishing route they might like to take a look at my book and then seek my advice on how to go about it if they think I could help.
