Another Malinding book finished!

Well, almost - it still needs a cover. I'm most attractive by the idea of a picture associated with the original Anti-slavery movement; 'Am I not a brother and a man?" - a chained slave, kneeling. If I can obtain permission to use the image I'd be delighted, because this book is about an 'underground railway' helping refugees escape from a totalitarian dystopian England. I've written to the Wilberforce Museum in Hull which houses the original picture, painted, I think, in 1777. Fingers crossed. Most of the writing was done at Gladstone's Library, in Hawarden, North Wales, not far from Chester. Worth a visit if you've not been there - a Library with 5* bed & breakfast accommodation!
