Now, I’ve always rejected that on the grounds that I’m not a professional writer and there probably wouldn’t be much of a market for it anyway. But, on the other hand, various comments have suggested there might actually be some mileage in it.
As I said, I have no professional expertise, especially in dealing with the publishing trade. So I’m wondering if someone who is a professional or semi-professional author, with knowledge of the beer/tourism industry, and experience of publishing, might be interested in a kind of partnership?
My initial vision would be something along the lines of a book version of Campaign for Real Pubs, although obviously that is up for discussion. While by no means made of money, I am willing, within reason, to provide some initial finance, although I would hope that it can be turned into something that is commercially viable and not just an exercise in vanity publishing.
So, if you think there might be something in it, why not get in touch and we can discuss possibilities in more detail? My e-mail address is here.
