We completed two book projects during the third quarter of 2018. The first was for Kent College in Canterbury, entitled Then Sings My Soul
. This was a tribute to the Kent College Choristers and their inspirational leaders Jackie and Rod Spencer. It includes a collection of compositions and arrangements by Rod for the choir, who have achieved significant success in UK competitions as well as performing at prestigious venues across Europe. This is our second book for Kent College, the first being A Richer Dust Concealed – The Old Boys of Kent College who Died in Conflict
, published in 2016.
Our second book project in 2018 was for the Sheringham World War One Centenary Commemoration and Remembrance Project. Published to mark the 100th centenary of the end of World War I, Sheringham at War 100 Years On
is a unique memoir of life in the war years and the contribution made by locals of this popular North Norfolk seaside town who fought and died in the service of ‘King and Country’.
Over 500 copies were sold in the first two weeks of publication alone. Along with advertising and donations, this more than covered the cost of production, enabling significant donations to be made to the Help for Heroes and Poppy Appeal charities. A companion volume covering World War II is being planned for 2019.
