I am emerging from six months purdah having finally finished my second book! It is called The Catholic Orangemen of Togo and Other Conflicts I Have Known, and is being published by Mainstream of Edinburgh.
I have submitted it first to the FCO for approval. The FCO never did approve Murder in Samarkand, but we went ahead and published anyway, and it turned out despite the government’s bluster there was nothing they could do about it. But the approval process was very helpful in proving the truth of the book, through the FCO’s table of requested changes.
I will keep you updated on what is happening with the Catholic Orangemen.
