I had a nice unsolicited testimonial. This post appeared in The Riviera Reporter:
Vic Heaney walked almost 2,000 kms from the French Pyrenees to Northern England. Walking for 70 days, he arrived on his 70th birthday. The book about the walk - and much else besides - is now available (all proceeds to pancreatic cancer research) in e-book form - and is now in paperback. The walk, like the book, was to raise funds for Pancreatic Cancer research. The fund is still open for donations. Just click the blue donate button. And/or don't forget to buy the book!
Some of you may have met Vic and Gay at one of the quizzes I ran last year at Brittains where we raised money for this cause. The book is beautifully written and is not just a travelogue, it talks about the concept of the walk and Vic's interesting life. It's inspirational and deserves wide coverage.
I'm trying to see if we can get Vic over to Valbonne again in the autumn (or fall, as Lyn from the English Book Centre in Valbonne http://www.englishbookcentre.com/ prefers to call it!) for a literary lunch and book signing, so watch this space!
