A lovely surprise at the studio when I sat down to have a lunchtime cuppa, when the boss and the staff of the studio appeared with champagne and a card to celebrate my 700th audiobook (The book that marked the milestone was Andrew Roberts’ “Elegy: The first day on the Somme” a detailed account of that first day. Forensically researched. Grim reading). So, there it is: 700 books! I’ve already done a Radio Newcastle interview with interviews with ITV and AudioFile magazines to come. A hectic schedule of interviews and appearances. I think I’m going to need that champagne!!!
