Hello All.

Today, I have received an early example of the proof from my publisher and I was very pleased by what I've seen. The photos I chose were very, very sharp and some, if not a lot, are in color.

Also, I have included some design drawings of the camouflage measures used on the boats as well. Some of these have color swatches with them and the color swatches can be seen quite well.

I've been told that the first printing run of the book will be as a hardcover version, but all subsequent print runs will be a paperback version, I will assume something akin to what Alan Raven's WARSHIP PERSPECTIVES are in.

I've been told that the hardcover version will be $10.00 more than the price of the paperback version will be, whatever that is. I don't know yet.

From what I saw today people; THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT A SQUADRON "IN ACTION" BOOK! This is for real............. I love this new book people.

Not as yet, sir.

I replied to your email about purchasing a book, but I never heard back from you.

Are you still interested?

If so, please email me.

Here's another update fellas ..............

Nimble Books just sent me another draft of the proof of my revised PT book, it looks stunning! I'm marvelling over it ........ I cannot believe that I did something like that, it blows me away. 172 pages all told ........ We'll be sitting on it for a week or two, to check for typos and the like ...

We're getting closer! I hope you'll like it guys ... I really put a hell of a lot of work into this one ... I think you'll approve of it. Heck, if it blows me away, it must be good. John Lambert says I can be my own worst critic ...
