  • Blog - Crimson Cats Audio Books
    it Scroll on to 2005 and the launch of Crimson Cats audio books Victor and indeed Adria were long since dead but casting around for an interesting travel book we thought of Everyman s England Nice idea but the book although long out of print was still in copyright At that time copyright lasted for 50 years from the death of the author these days it is 70 years so it had to be cleared before we could use the text I spoke to the agent who handled Victor s estate She had never heard of the book but promised to pass on my request to the copyright holder A few days later I had a call from an actor called Charles Collingwood I knew Charles again from my BBC days and because he plays Brian Aldridge in the long running British radio soap opera The Archers for which I had written scripts in the mid 80s I couldn t think why he was ringing me but then he told me he was Victor Canning s heir Adria had been his godmother Victor had left his estate to Adria and when she became ill Charles had taken care of her so she had left the estate to him You couldn t make this up could you I asked Charles if he was happy for us to produce an audio version of this book abridged of course and he said yes I then said that as it had been out of print for so long I wasn t prepared to pay anything up front for it but would pay him a royalty on sales He agreed to that too so while I was on a roll I asked if he would also read it for us After a pause he said Would that also be on the royalty only deal Oh yes I said Another pause and then he said Oh why not In fact it has sold well over the years so it has been a win win situation But there s yet another twist to the tale In 2011 our audio version was bought by someone who worked in print publishing He was very taken with it and asked about its provenance We told him the tale and the outcome was that a publishing house called Summersdale decided to re publish the original book in its entirety So the literary story came the full circle We have a copy of that too old and new side by side I think Victor would have been pleased Michael Back To Normal Whatever That Is And so we re back in Starston tired but happy and one little black and white furry thing was very glad to see us In fact she is currently following us around everywhere and won t put us down It was a wonderful trip but after a month on the road strange beds restaurant meals each night can we find a laundry before we run out of knickers it is good to be home Starston is a lovely village A team of neighbours looked after Holly that s the cat watered the plants sorted the post dealt with Crimson Cats orders One friend in particular took us to the airport and collected us and when we got home we found she d been shopping for us as well She d bought a range of items so arriving home late afternoon very tired and body clock all over the place we had the wherewithal to have breakfast lunch or dinner whatever seemed appropriate We did the unpacking then chose brunch and very good it was too Wonderful friends We were straight back into things of course I am one of the team which produces the monthly village magazine Pigeon Post and press date for the November edition is the 12 th October so I am having to jump around a bit For the curious you can follow this link http bit ly 1GBhPbV to read Pigeon Post on line Dee writes the gardening page of the magazine and in November she will be featuring one of the lovely gardens we saw on our travels Ruthie and Kevin s garden in Maine Incidentally I ve mentioned before that Dee was the inspiration behind our audio book Every Lady A Gardener She is a very keen gardener herself and has decided to start a gardening blog of her own So watch this space and we ll let you know when it is up and running We had fun blogging as we travelled across America and a number of you have very kindly said how much you enjoyed the vicarious travel I have also been asked if the Blogs can continue so I will do my best I will try and link them either to Crimson Cats itself or some aspect of the creative arts We have many friends who are writers poets painters artists in other genres so we ll tell you about some of them too And so normal life resumes though we ve often been told that our normal bears no relation to other people s normal That s how it should be as Thoreau said If a man does not keep pace with his companions perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer Let him step to the music which he hears however measured or far away Michael I m Leaving On A Jet Plane So we re sitting in Atlanta airport waiting for our flight to Norwich via Schiphol and looking back over the past 4 weeks of travelling through the eastern USA It s been a great trip we ve seen some wonderful scenery visited some very interesting places and met a lot of lovely people A few random thoughts to round off the travelling Blog I love the sign beside some interstates Speed checked by aircraft It conjures up a picture of a squadron of Spitfires circling over the road Tally ho chaps there s a bounder down there doing 5 miles an hour over the speed limit Let s take him out Rat a tat tat In the USA you can often turn right on a red light if nothing is coming Memo to self don t try this at home Nubble Lighthouse Would it be so difficult to make bank notes of different denominations a different colour That would lessen the chance of leaving a 50 dollar tip for a 20 dollar breakfast I could now write a thesis on Taps faucets I Have Struggled With Some of the ones we encountered were clearly built with an eye on design rather than functionality I don t want to get a degree in engineering just to obtain some hot water Christmas shops fighting it out with Hallowe en products Christmas will win as it comes later but is there really a market for that number of plastic musical reindeers And speaking of markets the dozens of flea markets everywhere Who are these people who want to buy all these fleas Oh another road sign we like Do No Pass We call this our Verdun road sign in memory of Marshall Petain who held Verdun against the Germans in the 1 st World War saying They shall not pass Don t think there were any double yellow lines at Verdun though Intrepid driver in the mountains And so our road trip comes to an end A lot of our friends can t quite get their heads round the unplanned nature of our trips We know where we are landing we know where we have to take off from the rest we invent as we go along We have covered 4 200 miles on this trip but hey remember Robert Louis Stevenson I travel not to go anywhere but to go I travel for travel s sake The great affair is to move We re with you RLS Michael PS This journey is over but the blogs will continue Watch this space Help Where s The Bathroom Having been on the road for a month staying in a different hotel motel every night it is easy to get disorientated You come back from dinner with only one of those plastic magnetic key things trying desperately to remember your room number Is it 212 No that was last night 303 No I m sure we were on the 5 th floor in this place but the long anonymous corridors don t help Fortunately I have a secret weapon for this problem She is called Dee whose powers of recall far exceed mine these days But she can t help me at 3 00 am when I stumble out of bed needing the loo Which direction is the bathroom Left Right Straight on behind a partition I could put the light on but that would disturb her Mind you by the time I ve fallen over a suitcase and walked into a closed door the light would probably have been the better option We left Gatlinburg in the pouring rain but were not sorry to go Gatlinburg is basically a resort with all the negative connotations that implies I would probably have loved it when I was 8 years old but now we just found it tacky Reminded us of Atlantic City without the casinos and the sea Pigeon Forge a few miles up the road was even worse at least 3 miles of solid tat The rain got worse as we headed for Oak Ridge and the American Museum of Science and Energy The museum was very impressive Oak Ridge Tennessee and Los Alamos New Mexico were the two main centres for the development of the atom bomb in the 1940s We visited the Bradbury Science Museum in Los Alamos last year on our journey from San Francisco to South Carolina so it was good to see its counterpart this year There s a very wide range of exhibits in the Oak Ridge museum and we lost 2 hours there very easily We also met Corvin a keen bird watcher but that s another story We stayed the night there in a hotel not the museum and the next day the weather having vastly improved we headed north to the Kentucky border and the Cumberland Gap Singing the Lonnie Donegan song as we went older friends will remember this and will understand why we began singing when we were just 15 miles from the Gap we made our way to the visitors centre to learn how Daniel Boone explored this pass through the mountains in the 18 th century thus paving the way for white settlement in Kentucky We also met Margaret busily weaving cloth on her loom but that s another story Daniel Boone National Forest We stayed that night in Middlesboro and met a delightful couple at breakfast who know England well though last time they were disappointed on a visit to Lincoln But that s another story We then spent Monday wandering through the Daniel Boone Memorial Forest Trees to the left of us trees to the right of us above us below us all around us Magnificent And so to Rogersville for our penultimate night of this trip This hotel like most we ve stayed in is very comfortable Nice room so let s get this sorted Out of bed turn left 3 paces forward turn left 9 paces forward turn left Aah Blessed relief Of course if I drank less of the local beer none of this would be necessary but that would be too high a price to pay to avoid a bit of 3 00 am stumbling Michael Keep Right On To The End Of The Road Well we did it In spite of the weather we have driven the full length of the Blue Ridge Parkway all 469 miles of it The Parkway links 2 national parks in the Appalachians the Shenandoah National Park in the north and the Smoky Mountains National Park in the south We ve done those as well We don t normally go in for taking selfies of ourselves against beautiful backdrops the backdrops themselves are usually more attractive on their own but when we reached the highest point on the Parkway 6053 feet we could not resist it So we have achieved the aim of this trip which was to explore a bit of New England and to drive down the line of the Appalachians from north to south with a planned diversion to Cape May There have been a lot of unplanned diversions of course because that is the way we travel Fall Colours One bonus we were too early for the fall colours in New England but in the southern Appalachians they are in full swing Beautiful We go on having brief encounters with all sorts of people wherever we go A week ago at breakfast in Front Royal we met Steve and Sally They had lived for some time in England near Rickmansworth as Steve was a civilian contractor for the American navy doing something interesting around Watford sounds like a contradiction in terms They were headed for the Grand Banks in North Carolina for a holiday with friends Hope they re okay that area is being battered by wind and waves courtesy of hurricane Joaquin Then at Linville Falls on the Blue Ridge Parkway we met Pete and Cindy Pete and his son are very involved in the Scouting movement and he is very proud that he has visited Brownsea Island in Poole Harbour in Dorset where Baden Powell started the Scout movement We told him about our audio book My Adventures As A Spy which tells of Baden Powell s spying experiences between 1880 and the 1 st World War We gave him our card so there may be another sale there Linville Falls Also at the falls we met an English couple heading for New Orleans Keith is a retired barrister and when they planned this trip he ordered an open top Mustang from the hire company What he actually got was a convertible VW He was disappointed his wife not into cars thought it was funny At Gatlinburg where we stayed when we came out of the Smoky Mountains we met James and Jennifer and their daughter We d had a swim in the hotel pool and a lovely soak in the hot tub and were just getting out when they arrived They live in Tennessee and have rarely been out of the State though James wants to go to England They loved our English accents and said so as many people do They had very broad southern accents Makes me sound like a hick said James We did not agree Hick is more about attitude than accent and he seemed like a nice guy And so it goes on The guy behind the deli counter in the supermarket who once had an English girlfriend the waitress at a restaurant whose friend had been to Wales the lady in a gift shop whose son studied archaeology at Sheffield We have an amazing range of conversations with an amazing range of people That s what makes travelling such fun Michael The Rain It Raineth Every Day The only topic of conversation along the eastern side of the USA at the moment is the weather Hurricane Joaquin is heading this way from the Bahamas and already much of the east coast including many of the places we visited in the last 3 weeks are suffering severe floods and storm surges We are currently in Asheville North Carolina having driven the Blue Ridge Parkway sun drizzle mist downpour popping off each night to stay at Bedford Martinsville and Boone It is now clear that we personally will not be directly shaking hands with Joaquin but the weather is appalling We tried swapping the hire rental car for a boat but no joy so instead I will talk about gardens Gardens never meant much in my life at least not until I met Dee As a child they were places to play cricket or cowboys or pirates Initially as an adult they became a pain in the neck or rather the back mowing the lawn struggling to keep weeds at bay so the neighbours didn t sneer Then Dee came into my life and I began to realise the pleasure of growing things for beauty and sustenance Our first home together had a shady yard about 12 feet square Dee s answer was window boxes From there she moved to an allotment yum yum to a bigger garden and now we have the lovely gardens she is creating in our Starston home It was Dee who came up with the idea of our audio book Every Lady A Gardener writings by women from the 19 th century about gardens and gardening I raised a sceptical eyebrow but she was right It is now one of our best sellers read by the wonderful Marilyn Cutts Ruthie s Garden in Bethel I have also learned to enjoy other gardens and we have seen some wonderful ones on our journey down the eastern side of the USA They range from the tiny imaginative plot beside Ruthie and Kevin s motel in Bethel Maine to the magnificent gardens of Thomas Jefferson s house Monticello on the edge of Charlottesville Virginia How to use the space at your disposal whether it is a bit of waste ground beside your house or a plantation of 5000 acres it is only those with imagination who will create something that makes people stop and stare rather than just walk on by Monticello vegetable garden As a writer imagination is my most important tool well that and being able to type One of my favourite quotes is Imagination is the only exact science It is people with imagination who give us the best stories music paintings sculptures poems
