ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions: one year later

Published April 06, 2018

About this time, a year ago, those who had pre-ordered the revised and expanded edition of ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions ( began receiving their copies. I can't quite believe it's already been a year, but what an amazing 12 months it's been.

When you're writing a book, for the most part you're so concentrated on getting the work done that the fact that someone's actually going to read it feels very abstract. Oh sure, there were times when I got particularly excited by something I was writing and thought, "they're going to get a real kick reading about this", but for the most part it was all about getting the work done.

So while I felt fairly confident that ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions would be well-liked by the fans, I was unprepared for the sheer love directed towards the book, much less the amazing reviews. I am so happy that this self-publishing "experiment" came off so well: that it was possible to put together a self-published, thoroughly researched book aimed at a small but highly motivated readership through the wonders of crowdfunding.

Thank you all for your amazing support throughout the entire experience of writing and publishing ABBA - The Complete Recording Sessions. I am now working on the companion volume, which I hope will be published sometime in 2019.
