Right folks. TPD is being published in book form and will be out in October this year. The publisher, Monday Books, have already gone ahead with the pre-press stuff and you can find it on Amazon.co.uk, Play.com and Waterstones.co.uk (as well as other places I believe), where it can be pre-ordered if you are inclined to buy.
The title is 'A Paramedic's Diary - Life and Death in London' and the cover is yet to be confirmed, so I would like your feedback on it when you see it. You will also discover my name, of course...
The intention of the book is to reach a wider audience (and it doesn't hurt the finances either I have to say) it is NOT intended to glorify the job I do or to patronise patients or colleagues. It is about what I do and will serve as a record of my career. I have been published before but this is the first time I have written a book of this kind, so I am hoping it will all go well.
For the record, although my bosses know about this blog and the book, the London Ambulance Service is not officially involved in any way. The book is therefore a biographical work and nothing more. I will, of course, have added stories that I have never posted, as well as expanded thoughts and views.
