The Book - In my hands!


I've just received a copy of the finished book, back from the printers, complete, exactly as it'll be in the shops. Until now, I'd only seen the proof copy which was not nearly of the same quality.

I am so pleased with it. Everything is exactly as I would have wished. However, I daren't read it in case I find an error now it's too late.

Hopefully it'll be in the bookshops and dispatched from the on-line sellers on Thursday.

I just hope that readers that have ordered a copy are as delighted with their book as I am. Let me know. BL

More than the near arrival of the book, the fact that Harry is leaving Italy and he's "very nearly in France" gives me the feeling that my burrrowing efforts in Harry's adventure are going to an end.
Ciao to everybody, for the moment

Congratulations Bill - Who'd have thought this when you pulished the first letter.
I know what you mean about not wanting to read it in case you find an error - If there is one, I'm sure there'll be a lot of people who'll let you know - in the nicest possible way of course!!
I wonder if we in New Zealand will be the first to get a copy? I thnk not...
Excellent work Bill.

Sorry Bill should have posted before, I have been reading my copy for the last week, I am not rushing to finish, just enjoying it slowly, it just seems the right thing to do (still haven't decided whether to go to the end), it's absolutely briliant, I had forgotten lots of thing and the war diaries really come into their own, I have only just realised how important they are, I was always in such a panic for the letters.

You should be very proud of this book, I get the feeling that it will be a stayer for many years to come.
