As we remember the D-Day invasion, it is right to honour the brave soldiers, sailors, and 3,500 airmen who sailed the Channel and stormed the beaches. But we must also remember the many thousands of airmen who bravely faced horrendous odds and took to the skies in support of D-Day.
As an author it is always nice to see one of your works top a specific category and I'm fortunate enough to have witnessed this a few times. I've topped the charts in Autobiographies (as a ghostwriter) Prisoners of War, and managed to scale the dizzy heights of the top ten with a crime fiction book and a true crime story.
The blurb for the brand new book Out of the West, by Kevin Sullivan, is really very bad. The first sentence lost me immediately as it mentioned two Greek names - both of which I instantly forgot - and then it describes their convoluted love affair in WW2 Greece, with some action taking place in Scotland.
