I've just discovered your website and think it's fantastic! I'll certainly use it to read other North West writers and for research puposes.

I was born in Bolton and have written and published a Young Adult novel which is set in Lancashire in the fictional village of Edgeburn. 'Edgeburn', is based on Rivington in the main, but has been transposed slightly further northwards towards Preston. Lord Leverhulme's Chinese Gardens feature in it as does the quarry area around Angelzarke.

'Edgeburn' is available on Amazon and it would be wonderful if you could promote it on your site and buy it for your libraries. I could possibly give a (free talk) to a reading group if you were interested, though I'm not living in the area now.

After Easter, I'll have a website up and running where you can read an extract from it and also some of my poems set in the North of England.

With best wishes,

Yvonne Lyon

Would you be so kind as to email me your email address.

I live in Wigan and desire to have my reference book in your library.

Or send your Stockist email address please.

Thanking you,
Mr FJH Glover


I just wanted to alert you to my new book, Forgotten Lancashire and Parts of Cheshire and the Wirral. I have managed to find out quite a lot of information about George Irwell, the talented writer and footballer from Wigan, and I share this in the book.

All the best

Great blog post. Things i would like to contribute is that pc memory must be purchased if your computer can't cope with that which you do with it. One can put in two RAM memory boards containing 1GB each, for example, but not certainly one of 1GB and one of 2GB. One should make sure the maker's documentation for one's PC to be certain what type of storage is needed.

Very nice pattern and fantastic articles , very little else we want : D.
