I managed to import a copy Of Hollow Earth and really enjoyed it. Fantasy is not my strong suit but the story was wild and the use of the Cumbraes as Auchinmurn and Era Mina was extremely clever.
I was wondering what the reaction as been in Millport?
The book seems to be crying out to be converted into a movie script. However, that does not guarantee it would be shot on the Cumbraes but it sure would be a big deal if it were. Actually, I thought the authors missed an opportunity in the acknowledgments to tie up their islands with the Cumbraes. I know anybody with minimal knowledge of the area knows what actually sits between Bute and Largs but there are bound to be lots of readers, especially on this side of the pond, who don't know and there might even be those who make a special trip to try and find Auchinmurn.
Has there been much media coverage over there on the book and its location? I hope so.
