It has now been published! I received the first carton of the first edition today.
:D

Back again, sorry for the delay, I was logged out.

Just an update on the book.
The first edition went OK although it was printed in the States.
The only problem was the index, it looked good....pity they didn't put numbers on the pages!!!!!
Then I found two more panels and had to re-write most of it.
Fortunately one of our boys is a printer and this time it was printed locally and is much better.
It is selling well through the museum although postage costs more than the book!

Hi Brian,
It is good to see an update on your book's progress. I'm pleased that it is selling well. As you make the comment about postage
costs, does that mean it is not on sale at the museum?

It is a shame that the proof-reader didn't notice the page numbers had been left out. :-( If you had to rewrite after finding two more panels, then maybe it eventually didn't matter too much?
With Best Wishes from
Marian

Hi Marian,
It is on sale at the museum no problem.

I have naturally sent complimentary copies to certain people and places and, due to the quality of stock and the postal rates, it has proved very expensive.
e.g. Book $25.00 Postage $40.00 even adding one sheet of paper puts it into the next weight range!
