Just 500 signed copies available now!

I picked up the new edition of Spirit of Adventure from Shetland Litho the other day, only to find that the agreed 1000 copies had become 500...which means that this is truly a limited edition. And it means it's easier to sign each and every one!

There will be another reprint as soon as managing director Brian comes back from his holidays, but for now, the book is available on a first come, first served basis, at £9.99 post free in the UK. I'm really pleased with the quality of the book, and especially with the new cover, which was designed (though as in-house Shetland Litho designer, he didn't want a credit) by my old colleague Melvyn Leask.

You can order the book online at The Bookcroft, using credit cards or Paypal, it will be available in a limited number of bookshops. or indeed, using pigeons, owls or other forms of avian transportation, direct your cash to me at North Atlantic Media Ltd, The Mediacroft, Gateside, Hillswick, Shetland ZE2 9RL.

Oh, and if you don't know what on earth Spirit of Adventure is all about, it's the 1992 tale of my journey around Scotland's distilleries aboard a truly disreputable motorcycle, in the days before radio. Find out more here.
