Tractor boy launches website for new book
10:00am Monday 9th June 2014 in News
A FIRST-TIME author has launched a website to keep track of where his book is being read.
Graeme Brooke of Manningtree has written a novel entitled Adventures of a Tractor Boy which tells tales of his time following Ipswich Town at home and abroad.
He has now launched adventuresofatractorboy.co.uk for people to share where they are reading from and leave reviews.
“We have already had promises from Sydney Opera House and the Melbourne Cricket Ground,” said Mr Brooke.
“The book is already in the top 221 of all the titles available on Amazon which is not bad for so little marketing.
“It is also available at greetings and gifts at Greetings and Gifts on Manningtree High Street.”
All proceeds will go towards the Special Care Baby Unit at Colchester General Hospital which helped Graeme’s daughter Leah when she was born eight weeks premature.
