I occasionally tell you about the huge wealth that comes from writing books – well, my books anyway. I’ve just had a royalty payment from Bloomsbury for Birds and Forestry (1989, with Roderick Leslie), A Message from Martha (2014) and Inglorious (2015, 2nd edition 2016). In 2022 these three books, but basically Inglorious, earned me upwards of £160. Woohoo! That’ll help with the increased heating bills – I might buy some new jumpers.
But more seriously, I’m thrilled by the fact that the messages of Inglorious are still being read by new readers.
