  • Where Does It Hurt? - Crimson Cats Audio Books
    foreigners out of Ireland 7 out of 20 that s a third of our titles My first response was Ouch but then I started thinking about it None of these except possibly the Nelson who has moved into the realm of legend glorify war They are more about individuals responding to difficult situations In Private Rawson s War Tony Rawson who was conscripted into the army in 1942 found himself in the Middle East He used the opportunity to learn about the history and culture of the places where he was sent he learned Arabic he visited historical sites and wrote home about his experiences to his mother in Watford We learn more about Tony from his letters than we do about the war and that is how it should be In the 1 st World War Jerome K Jerome was considered too old to serve by the British so he volunteered as an ambulance driver with the French army and ended up at Verdun The experiences of Brian Wright s various Great Grandads with varying amounts of great in My Grandads and Afghanistan bring all the Afghan wars Britain has been involved in down to the level of individual experiences And it s individual experiences that make good story telling whether it s coping with huge disasters like a war or simply handling some level of personal problem A good story needs a problem or a difficulty of some kind If Cinderella s step mother had said Of course you can go to the ball darling I ll lend you a dress we wouldn t have the famous fairy tale If Goneril had gone to King Lear and said Father Regan and I have been talking and we want Cordelia to have everything then bang goes one of Shakespeare

  • What? Christmas Already? - Crimson Cats Audio Books
    on that have bought all the titles from our range that interest them so although we do send out regular mailings we are probably preaching to the converted These days we probably sell as many MP3 downloads as we do CDs but Christmas is always a good time for selling the physical products CDs make good presents they re not expensive and they re easier to post That s what we say anyway and previous years seem to bear out that statement The range of our titles is both an advantage and a disadvantage The fact that they re all different means that there s probably something for everyone in the range but it also means that you can t really market Crimson Cats as an entity Just because you like some of them doesn t mean you d like them all Fair enough but we reckon that anyone who enjoys audio books will find something to like whether that s gardening Every Lady A Gardener literature such as Jane Austen The Beautifull Cassandra biographies of people like Gerald Durrell Stories Of A Corfu Childhood or Jerome K Jerome My Life And Times anthologies which could be cats How To Own A Human or 1 st World War poetry and prose War Girls Then there is the beautiful memoir The House on an Irish Hillside or a range of interviews with sporting personalities from the past Sporting Legends The full range of our titles can be seen on our web site where short audio clips from each title can be heard www crimsoncats co uk Pennoyers So next Saturday we ll be talking the talk trying to interest people into trying at least one of our audio books From experience we know it will be a long day on our

  • For Michael and Dee... With Some Surprise...! - Crimson Cats Audio Books
    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
