If you are NOT familiar with ‘Gaudete’, I feel bad for you.
But at least we have rectified that.

Click above for a Wikipedia take on this very old Christmas hymn.


I learnt of ‘Gaudete’ by hearing Steeleye Span, with Maddy Prior,
singing it … in the early 1970.

I would have to say that ‘Steeleye Span’ is still my all time favorite group — ever.

I used to be a ‘Steeleye Span’ (& ‘Lindisfarne’) groupie —
in that I would try and attend as many concerts, a year, that I could. 

When I could I would follow them from town to town
— seeing two or three concerts a week. 

That I was a customer support manager, expected to travel around the U.K., as much as I could,
and money was never an issue (in those halcyon days),
made being a ‘groupie’ a breeze.

I think Maddy Prior is divine.

Sit back. Turn up the volume and ENJOY.

This was a book I had to write and one I enjoyed writing. I hadn’t done any of my trademark illustrations in a few years. It was fun. I haven’t had the time to do both writing and ‘drawing’ up until this book. [After saying that I did this book in 2 days and the illustrations took 90% of the time. Don’t tell anybody that. That is our secret.]

Comet ISON will be quite an event for kids — exciting, enchanting but at the same time a bit scary and off putting. This book will dispel the trepidation and help enhance the fascination of experiencing this amazing celestial show.

Though meant for kids quite a few parents may want to read it first! It is a soup-to-nuts explanation of Comet ISON, with illustrations, in 24 pages. Now YOU too can answer the questions that the kids will have like an expert.

I am already working on the full-color, 28 page print version. I want it to be affordable. So I am going to sell it basically at cost! So, I think, it will be under U.S. $8.00. [Full color books are expensive to print.] Growing up the one thing I had was books. I had a lot of books. I had more books than anybody else that I knew. I want other kids to have that privilege. So this is my part. The Kindle eBook, which can be read on practically anything, whether it be a PC, Android phone, iPad, Kindle device or Mac, is as ever 99 cents. 

The eBook is available now. I published it yesterday.

Yes, my 20th book as sole author. See the new sidebar graphic. My 9th this year! I still have more to do.

Enjoy.

Comet ISON will start becoming visible, naked eye, towards the end of October. Get this book well ahead of that.
