Jim, Director of The Last Line publishing house, coincidentally the publishers of my Automata Wars series (ahem), will be walking from Loughborough to Nottingham in the guise of one of the Walker series of automata from my novels. He's hoping to raise a bucket of cash for Comic Relief good causes. Sponsor him if you can. Join him en route, even. The official press release is below:
On Friday the 15th March, Jim Snee, the director of The Last Line publishing house, will be trying to raise an eyebrow, if not a smile, and as much money as possible for comic relief.
Accompanied by local author E.A. Stokes, and sent on his way by friends, family and well-wishers, Jim will take on the costume and character of an Automaton from L.M. Cooke’s Automata Wars novels and walking from Loughborough to Nottingham.
Jim has spent weeks building the complex and bulky costume that will transform him from human being into the man shaped machine known simply as The Walker. At 9.00am The Walker will set off from the centre of Loughborough and it is expected that the 17mile route to Nottingham will take approximately 8 hours. It is hoped that the sponsorship of this walk will raise money for a great cause.
As with all the great events taking place on Red Nose Day, the money raised will help people living unimaginably tough lives across the UK and Africa.
L.M. Cooke, the author of The Automata Wars series says: “The Automata Wars tells the story of a population menaced by war-machine automata. So what else but Jim would decide to turn the destructive machines of the first two books into a force for good, by dressing as a mechanical man, and walking miles for charity! Make no mistake, though, this is going to be a tough task; a long walk wearing a heavy load of awkward mechanical parts - we're looking for volunteer foot massagers for the end of the day! We hope that in recognition of this amazing feat of Jim's amazing feet, people will dig deep in their pockets and donate, and we can make a real difference to the lives of those who really need it!”
