    The Bob Sterry School of Burglary published at last.

    Over the last thirty days I am happy to say that the Kickstarter crowdfunding program to support the publication of my book, ‘The Bob Sterry School of Burglary’ ran successfully, and the book of poetry, vignettes, and essays is now available online from Amazon and Powell’s books, or if you are a bookseller, from Ingram distributors. It took nearly eight months from inception to completion. I am indebted to my designer Susan Bard, and publishing guru/guide Charlie Clark. Also many thanks to my reviewers Emmett Wheatfall, Tom Hogan and Uvi Poznansky, for their kind words.
