Today’s the last day of The Goose Road giveaways over on Twitter so I thought I’d pull together (one final time) all the links to the launch interviews and guest articles published in the past few weeks, in which I think I’ve said pretty much all that’s worth saying about writing the book.
There is one article outstanding: the acknowledgements, which are lengthy and will appear in due course, because I’d rather say something meaningful about the contribution of people I want to thank, rather than list names and gush generically about them, which won’t mean anything to anyone else.
Meanwhile, here’s what’s to be found online already:
Books as emotional stepping stones to World War One on ABBA
WW1 research and remembrance on The History Girls
Myths, mistakes and other inner debates about the title The Goose Road on JoshAndABook

5 best bits about being a debut author – and the 5 worst on Michelle Toy’s Tales of Yesterday.
“Inspirations that led me along The Goose Road” is on a Tumblr account that inserts the entire thing directly onto WordPress (!) so I won’t post the link here. It’s locatable via Alex’s Fiction Addiction and is also pasted in full in this earlier blog.
