Well, Crucible of Fate has now been published and will start to appear with retailers very soon. Amazon have already got it up on their site here


The book is currently out in paperback and will appear on Kindle at the start of July. Meanwhile, we are holding a modest little official book launch in North Staffordshire on 5th July 2012. The details are below…






From The Front Consultancy Ltd are delighted to be sponsoring the Official Book Launch for CRUCIBLE OF FATE, the latest World War II action novel by our very own core speaker and Potteries based author, Andy Johnson. This is the third of Andy’s historical novels and tells the part dramatised, part fictionalised story of D-Day, 6th June 1944, when the Allies launched the largest amphibious assault in history against Nazi occupied Europe.


The book launch will take place in the Main Hall of Greenways Primary School, Nursery Avenue, Stockton Brook, Stoke-on-Trent, ST9-9NY, on Wednesday 4th July 2012. Attendance is by ticket, however the tickets are FREE! You can obtain your free ticket(s) by e-mailing us or ringing our landline number and giving us your details. We will then arrange for your tickets to be despatched. The timings for the event are as follows:


6.30 – 7 pm: Guests assemble, view historical displays, refreshments available.


7 – 7.50 pm: Historical talk by Andy Johnson on D-Day.


7.50 pm onwards: An opportunity to purchase author-signed copies of Andy’s books and chat with the author about his historical novels and military career. Please note, books are £11 each and only cash can be accepted on the evening.


The venue is just off Leek Road and the turning is adjacent to the Wesley Methodist Church. Parking is on the school playground. There is overspill parking in nearby streets if required, however, we would ask that anyone doing so parks with consideration to local residents and other road users.


Tea/Coffee, Soft Drinks, Snacks and Chocolate can be purchased on the evening for those coming straight from work and in need of a boost!


Please come along and join us for this unique event, which is being held in the author’s home-town at his own request, and listen as Andy brings history to life.
