Mod Ghosts finally hits the streets
« on: November 29, 2019, 07:05:39 PM »
I hope you'll forgive for starting a new thread, but I'm chuffed to bits to be able to report that, after a two year project, my first book Mod Ghosts finally hits the streets today.  It's been on pre-order for a while now but, symbolically at least, today feels like a big day. With the canon of Mod literature already substantial and comprehensive, my book offers a different take on this joyously multi-dimensional thing of ours. If nothing else, I hope its ever-so-slightly iconoclastic stance will resonate with discerning readers and maybe even cross over to a wider audience. We'll see.

If I could work out how to post a photo of the book I would.   But I can't. Author, design, create the artwork, do the photography, illustrate, layout and publish a book, yes. Post a photo on a forum, not so much  ;)

All orders placed by Modculture forum members will be signed by me before shipping. Remember to quote Modculture in the comments box on Paypal or the address field when ordering. Alternatively, drop me an email to andy@modghosts.co.uk once you've placed your order. The book is available on eBay and at modghosts.co.uk

Cheers

Thanks for posting this in here;  I'd intended placing an order for this book months ago when you first posted on the Forum, and then it completely slipped my mind   :-[

I'll sort my order this evening when I get home.

Cheers,

It arrived a few days ago and I put it on the side for when I had time to read it properly. This morning I started reading it and I've just finished. What a great book. So many times it felt like Andy had been in my head and was speaking my emotions and thoughts. "It is as important to look right on the journey as it is at the destination."
I've read lots of stuff about Mods but this was from the inside from someone like me growing up in normal streets and finding a home as a Mod just because it felt right.

Very funny, warm and from the heart. Well done mate, you nailed it.

If anyone hasn't ordered their copy do yourself a favour and get one. You will hear yourself from back then and now and remember why we do this.
