Thoughts and observations on the Swedish foursome
published August 21, 2023
I'm pleased to report that my much-delayed book ABBA On Record - Packaged Promoted Reviewed slowly but surely progresses towards completion. I hope to print within the next few months, and delivery will then be in early 2024. Yes, another delay (albeit a slight one), for which I apologise profusely, but at least the book is now properly in the pipeline, so it would be counter-productive to rush things at this stage. As always, I thank you for your extraordinary patience: the constant delays have always been about making the book better.
One of the perks for everyone who pre-orders the book is that they will get their copies signed with a personal dedication, for example: "To Alice" and then my signature. As I'm nearing the final production phase, and in order to get everything organised before that, the deadline to place your order if you want your book signed is 21 October 2023, two months from today's date. For as long as this edition of ABBA On Record remains in print, no further copies of the book will be signed by me.
21 October is also the cut-off date for the special price for everyone ordering ABBA On Record from the UK. After 21 October, the price for UK deliveries will be the same as for Europe. I had originally planned on printing in the UK, like I did with ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions, but Brexit put a stop to that, so I will be printing in an EU country, which means that shipping costs will be higher. For all prices and further ordering information related to ABBA On Record, please visit the ordering page.
ABBA On Record has been in the works so long now that many of you may not quite remember what the book is about. But fear not: I will start posting regular blogs with highlights of the book contents in the next few days. Watch this space.
And again: thanks for your support and for your patience with me. It has meant a lot as I've been working on ABBA On Record.
