There seems to be a bit of confusion about the release date for the book. Officially, it is Monday, September 20th but some people have already received their copies because they have ordered them directly from BackPage Press. BackPage have several hundred books at their warehouse whereas Amazon have not received their copies . . . yet. They will do, just not as quickly as BackPage. It follows then that if you can't wait for your book, you would be better to order it direct from the publisher. You can do so by following this link: http://www.backpagepress.co.uk/purchase.htm and you'll also get a free ebook.
There has been a very positive response from those that have received their copies and that's because BackPage Press have made a first class job of the production - I hope my words have done them justice. There are a number of Gillie-themed events planned over the coming weeks. Launch day is at the Dundee Contemporary Arts Centre at 10am on September 18th and we hope to have a number of players from the Dundee league-winning side in attendance. BackPage have been busy putting together a 15-minute film about Alan's time at Dundee and Tottenham and there will be an opportunity to ask questions afterwards. More details to follow. As for Spurs, there are plans in the pipeline to host a Gillie night in the London area and I am aware that there is a campaign underway to try to get him back to White Hart Lane in the near future.
Finally, there is a chance for 10 readers to win a copy of the book from the Four Four Two website. Follow the link for your chance to win: http://fourfourtwo.com/win/simple.aspx?win=236
That's it for now but I intend to provide a few more updates in the days before release and hope to see you soon.
