So here it is. At long last. Hot from the sepia presses!
The Best Of Sepia Saturday is now available. It has been published via Lulu books which means that it can easily be purchased from Lulu on-line stores in the USA, Canada, Australia, the UK and a host of other European countries. You should be able to get to the product page by following this LINK. You can get a preview of the first few pages of the book by clicking on the preview button. You can change from the UK store to other national stores by clicking on the little national flag icon.
At this stage, the book is just available in the black and white edition (with full colour covers) : unfortunately a colour edition isn't available in the format we are using, so to produce a full colour edition will mean quite a bit more reformating - and a substantial increase in the price of the finished product. But given the nature of the subject, I think the black and white edition looks quite good and is reasonably cheap to buy. If there is enough demand for a full colour edition we can revisit it as an option. At the moment, the book is only available direct from Lulu, but within the next week to ten days I will have completed the various checks to make it available via Amazon and Barnes and Noble worldwide. I will update you with progress on this as it happens. Try as I might, I was unable to make the final product genuinely profit-free (it would have complicated things no end and resulted into a complex price) and therefore I stand to make a few pence profit on each copy sold. If it is OK with you I will use any profits generated to go towards paying our Annual Linky fees.
So there we are. I hope you like it. I apologise for the delays and for the mistakes I suspect there might be in the final text. I will be officially launching the book by lifting a pint glass of ale at 9.00pm (GMT) this evening. I invite all my fellow contributors to join me at the virtual book launch party.
Thanks to you all for your support, encouragement and kind words. In particular, thanks to Marilyn for reading through the draft and spotting some important mistakes.
