The 2017/18 Stacey West season review book will be out soon.

Featuring the best blogs and articles from the season, it charts the Imps rise from Football League new boys to Wembley heroes. All along the way it features articles written at the time of the events, not retrospectively, to build a thorough and honest account of the season as it unfolded through a fans eyes.

It’s the natural successor to ‘A Season in Blogs’, the terribly titled 2017 release.

15% of the profits will be split equally between two good causes, the Fans Player Scheme (to help the club) and Mayflower House, a charity close to my heart and managed by a firm supporter of the blog.

The cover will feature drawings from another set of blog fans, years 4, 5 and 6 from Digby Primary School, who often urge their teacher, Mrs Miller, to check her phone for Stacey West updates.

This is a review of the season, but it isn’t your formulaic, match by match basis relying of big photos and a few stats to keep you cover. This is words, lots of them, to see you through your holidays, commute to work or just your spare time. It is Lincoln City’s 2017/18 season through the eyes of the award nominated Stacey West.

We may miss Father’s Day with our release, a sad indictment of my failure to recover from back surgery in super human time. If you do want to order this as a Father’s Day present, we’ll provide a limited edition Father’s Day card for you to present to your Dad on the day, with details of his ‘real’ present. We may make the deadline, but it’s getting tighter by the minute.

Some Amazon reviews of last year’s book, as a guide to what to expect:

“A fascinating contemporary account of an amazing season as an Imps fan, from a lifelong fellow sufferer who wears his heart on his sleeve and writes brilliantly when the force is with him.

The benefit of hindsight makes some of the early blogs a delight, a few entertainingly wrong calls but an underlying sense that something special could be developing. As that ‘something special’ happens, the first hand account of a supporter’s experiences and emotions of the cup runs and the league success captures the raw essence of the developing ‘miracle season’.

Not only is this book essential reading for fellow Imps basking in the glory of 2016-17 after a lifetime of mainly dross and dashed hopes, but an insight for any football supporter of life in the lower reaches, the hopes, the aches, the sheer delight and incredulity as things come right in a way no one could have foreseen.”

“As a lifelong Imps fan and season ticket holder for many disappointing years, this was a remarkable adventure for us. I will, however, review the book without my red and white striped glasses on.

If you love football, no matter the level, this book sends you on a journey of emotions that are felt by every fan at some point of a season, pure unadulterated joy to complete despair. tears and laughter, the disbelief and self doubt that your team causes you. Written from the view point of a fan in the stands and the turmoil that brings. Spilling the guts of non league football, not a bunch of overpaid, overrated mercenaries.

Of course I loved it, but even if this wasn’t written about my team I would still have loved it. Unless it was about the Cods that is!”

“A must read for any Lincoln fan, or fans of football miracles in general. This isn’t a teary eyed eulogy about the 16/17 season written with the benefit of hindsight, it’s an ‘as it happened’ account written from the point of view of someone who bleeds red and white. If you want a proper record or want to be reminded of Lincoln’s record breaking season then look no further. Fantastic”
