Trish’s novel lives as author passes away

The sad coda to the story of Trish’s novel in my blog post ‘News: people are kind’ is that she really didn’t have very much time. She passed away on the 9th of March 2017 just as her novel came into being.

The crowdfunding via Justgiving reached a total of £1220 or 122% of the target set, which is probably indicative of the effort it must have taken for the publishers, Magic Oxygen, to turn the book out in the space of two and a half weeks, not forgetting that so many people offered to help and made donations. Trish had the support of her family to make her dream come true and a great friend and champion in Trevor Chambers, a volunteer for the Bridport Blind Club, who appealed for help to set her on the road to publication. To see and buy a copy of Trish’s novel, Grannifer’s Legacy, visit the Magic Oxygen bookshop. Donations from each sale will be made to the Southwest Dorset Talking Newspaper
