Setting The Scene - books are on their way at last.


IF YOU WANT TO BUY THE BOOK GO TO THE SIDE BAR ON THE RIGHT OF THIS PAGE AND CLICK ON 'SETTING THE SCENE'. THIS WILL TAKE YOU TO THE DEDICATED PAGE FOR ORDERING.  


I am pleased to say that the books have arrived at long last after the nightmare we had with the original printers. Steve has set the ball in motion for taking them to the small claims court to see if we can get our money back.

You will be glad to know that I have been to the post office today and managed to get everyone's book in the post, so you should have it in your hands in the next couple of days, depending on what part of the world you live in.

My deepest apologies for you having to wait so long for the book to finally materialise and also having paid in advance for it. Our original intention had been for you to pay a couple of days in advance of our receiving the book from the printer and then we could have got the book sent off to you before the xmas postage deadlines. In the end we had to draw a line in the sand and change printers but at least it is better late than never.

In the end I stopped sending out invoices until the books actually arrived, so I will be sending them out tonight. If you haven't received an invoice from me and you would like to buy the book then click on the dedicated page by clicking SETTING THE SCENE in the box on the top right hand side of this page.

My thanks to Steve Lampon for all his hard work in helping with the technical and admin side of getting the book off the ground, to which there has been plenty.

I hope you enjoy the book and your late Christmas reading.

Pat.

  7. Thanks for the update, Pat, and also for solving the unfortunate problem with your first printer.

    My son is home from college for Winter Break and we've been watching "Band of Brothers" together, and during the Bastogne episodes I couldn't help but think to myself what an incredible job you did creating your Battle of the Bulge terrain. Like others above, I can't wait for my copy to arrive here in La La Land!
