David Fleming’s posthumous book tour!

by Shaun Chamberlin on September 8th, 2016


So, after years of work from me, and decades from David, the day is finally here – the official publication date for his astonishing lifework!!

In truth, demand has already been such that the distributors have been struggling to keep up, but they’re ramping things up now, and the real promotional push starts here 🙂

Last week I circulated an email with full details of the books, the early reviews, tour events etc, but since two additional dates have already been added since, I thought I’d post an updatable listing of my tour here (Edit – videos now added below from many of the events):
