A website tracking my attempt to publish my own book, "Brighton's Best Pubs". This is a locally produced guide to every pubs and bar in Brighton, the book is a comprehensive guide covering an amazing 300 pubs and bars within the city, utilising a unique pub rating system. Atmosphere, Beer, Barstaff, Food, Entertainment, Decor/Garden and Talent are all rated for each pub/bar. It also features maps, a Club guide and suggested pub crawls.

Update on Progress

Well, I've been busy trying to finalise answers from Harveys and CAMRA, both of which are not responding quickly....and still haven't decided either way.
Also trying to get more advertisers. A concerted campaign to sign up clubs and restaurants has not been very successful. Lots of "send me some more details" followed up by conspicuous silence.
Don't they realise that its cheap to advertise in this book?! Only £150 for a full page, which will be in every copy sold until 2008 sometime. And books don't get thrown away. Seems like a bargain to me.
Otherwise, the inside is done, the maps are done, the cover is nearly formatted to the printer's requirements. I'm basically waiting for my potential advertisers/funders. I could just go now with the money I have, but it'd be a kicker if I sent it to the printer and then *someone* turned around and asked for 2 full pages = £300......
