Alan Godfrey on Monday 23 October 2017. The new print run of Who or What Were They? has just been
delivered and here he is signing and posting off copies ordered from e bay books. Lots of them as you see.
So for those waiting - your copy is on its way!
Some shots from the signing sessions held by Alan Godfrey at the Golden Lion in
Here is Alan with some of the many happy purchasers of Who or What Were
They? on the sell out launch weekend of 14/15 October 2017. See Alan's blog
post below for a report.
ALAN GODFREY 18 October 2017
It is good to report that the book is selling really well. Thank you so much to all
who turned up at the launch event at the Golden Lion last Saturday and Sunday.
It was so nice to see you all there.
Indeed it was great to be able to catch up with old friends who have stood by
me over the years and to meet many new ones and hear some of your own
stories. Together we can hopefully change how people think about the
credibility of those who tell what we saw 'out there'.
So do not be afraid to tell the truth.
The first print run completely sold out by the end of the book signing
sessions and I have a large list of orders on the e bay site waiting to post out
when my new order arrives back from the printers. They are getting these to me
as fast as possible so hopefully you should all start receiving your copies in a
week or so.
Thank you for your patience as I had no idea so many would be interested.
I have been really touched by the response from many of those who say they
have read the book from cover to cover and some even told me they could not
put it down and had to read right through to the end.
Also thank you to everybody who tells me that you are recommending it to
friends. WOW. That is such a compliment.
Oh, and I really do want to thank Jenny Randles for the brilliant job she did
helping me to get this book into such a readable form. It was a new experience
for both of us to create a book from start to finish. Jenny was used to writing a
book and then promoting it once released but letting her publisher handle the
hard part in the middle. It was quite an experience learning how to and
then watching it evolve over the past few months as we figured out how to do
the creative bit.
Which also was in large part thanks to my grandson Jack Cougill and his
marvellous cover art that really catches the eye. He worked hard to get this
right and has a great future ahead of him. I am so proud.
I also want to say thank you to those people who told their stories in my book.
Mike Sacks and Bobby Coates for example. They deserve a round of applause for
being brave and speaking out.
I even signed a couple of copies of 'The Pennine UFO Mystery' - the book Jenny
and I worked on together about the broader Pennine sightings way back in 1983.
So not all copies of that 34 year old book have disappeared - rare as I know it is
Though as you will read in my new book our writing of that book was not
without 'interference' from others!
I am really looking forward to more public appearances in the future, such as
the two conferences I will be talking at next Summer.
More details on those events coming soon.
ALAN GODFREY 29 September 2017
Well not long to go before my book signing on the 14th/15th October in
I am getting a bit nervous now as I have never written a book before - never
mind done anything like a signing. This has put a little more pressure on me,
but that is all good. Interest is high so I have ordered an extra 50 copies of the
book which means I now have 200 in print.
There has been an over whelming response from people around the country
who are coming from far and wide to the bookstore. I think I will end up with
hand cramp before the week-end is over.
It will be nice to meet all these people and expect there will be more events to
I am expecting the books to arrive around the 5th,6th October from the printers
and then I will have a week to prepare. So no pressure!
I have also been invited to speak at both the UFO Truth Magazine Conference
next September in Yorkshire and also the Outer Limits Magazine conference in
Hull the same month. More details on both these events in here as soon as they
Could be a very busy year ahead. More soon.
