The World War One historian Susan Burnett has been featured in regional newspaper series, the Monmouthshire Free Press, after her critically-acclaimed memoir, On That Day I Left My Boyhood Behind, became an Amazon bestseller.
The non-fiction title, based on the memoirs of her late grandfather, Norman Woodcock, who fought for King and country in the First World War, was rejected by a string of mainstream publishers who believed her book to lack “commercial appeal”.
Undeterred, Susan decided to self-publish – and has since won bestseller status and critical acclaim with the book having topped the Amazon book chart of World War One biographies both as a paperback and on Kindle.
Book PR specialists Palamedes PR was also able to secure an exclusive serialisation in the Daily Mail earlier this year to mark the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli Landings.
