As many of you will know from the recent interview with Jane Royston it is very likely that there will be a new publication on the Follyfoot series.
I have been asked, would I publish the following letter for the fans of Follyfoot to see.
So, have a read of the following:
"Jane Royston and I would like to say "hello" to all the members who visit the forum, and thank you for your interest in the new Follyfoot book. Jane, as some of you will already know, was Horse Manager for the entire three series of the show, and has fascinating stories to tell about the work behind the scenes, as well as the locations used.
We would like to take this opportunity to update everyone on our progress, and confirm that the first draft is more or less complete now - we are just adding some finishing touches. Jane and I are both discovering that the publishing process is a very long, slow and complicated procedure, but hope to be able to share some good news with you over the coming weeks.
The new book will take readers on a journey behind the scenes of Follyfoot, revisiting locations used, talking to the actors, and hopefully solving the mystery once and for all of the infamous "Lockkeeper's Cottage!"
The book will also detail how Jane found the location for Follyfoot Farm, list all the episodes, and contain never before seen photographs - in fact, I can't wait to read it myself!
We will keep in regular touch via Nik, and rest assured, the forum will be the first to hear all the latest and up to date news on the book.
Best regards - Ray"
What more can I say!
P.S. We have the sole permissions of the authors to publish this letter. It is not for reproduction elsewhere.
