Announcing My New Book

I’m very pleased to announce that my summer project is complete! My new book, Song Book: 21 Songs from 10 Years (1964-74), will be released by New Haven Publishing on November 28. It can be purchased on Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble in the US, and Indigo in Canada, all of which which will ship worldwide.

I’ll be posting updates and news about the book on Facebook and on my other blog. There’s also a YouTube channel for the book, featuring playlists of the songs that are discussed in the book, along with a promotional video.

I hope you’ll check it out!

Blogcation

The end of my university’s academic year is approaching, and I’ve undertaken a project (which I can’t discuss at the moment) that is going to fill a lot of my time during the summer. So….All About Work is taking a bit of a blogcation.

If I do post at all in the next little while, it will be on a very irregular basis. However, I will pop in regularly to make sure that everything is still functional. And I can still be reached through the Contact page on the blog, or on Twitter. 

Thank you, regular and occasional readers, and see you soon!
