I want to thank all the contributors to my forthcoming book “The Rise of the Cyber Women” for your patience and understanding. I did not take the decision to delay its release lightly when my father was in hospital earlier his year, but immediately following this the COVID-19 outbreak hit and sadly this delayed the release of the book even further as I had to adapt and pivot to the COVID-19 situation accordingly.

However, I am very pleased to say that I am finally back on schedule and hope to release “The Rise of the Cyber Women” imminently.

Due to time constraints I have engaged the services of a freelance proof-reader who is going to start this for me for the book next week. She is going to drip feed each chapter back to me as she proof-reads them and I will send each contributor their chapter for final approval before the book is published via Kindle Direct Publishing.

I do have a bit of room in the book to squeeze in another 3 chapters. If anyone reading this is interested in being included please email me via info@cybersecurityassociation.co.uk for a copy of the chapter guidelines – I would need chapters sent to me by Friday 22 May 2020 for inclusion.  

Thank you all again for your patience, it hasn’t been an easy time for anyone but I am back on track with the book and I’ll post further updates as soon as I have them.
