-----------------

I have been working on Volume 4 of Veteran Bring Backs for about 4 years, and I am finally going to have it published this spring. This likely last volume is right at 170 pages – cost after publication will be $30. I never thought there would be four volumes making this into a series, there are stories from many wars and many types of guns. As an example – there are 5 stories on lugers (WW2 and Cold War) – 5 on Arisaka’s – 2 CZ27’s – two flags – 2 Soviet rifles in Vietnam – 2 on 1911’s – 4 P38 stories from WW2 and Vietnam – a Civil War revolver – PPK, Garand, Tokeravs, a US Carbine, Thompson and several others -- overall a lot of interesting stories!


Books are being sent to my house today - expected delivery late next week (27 August and I'd start shipping the next day)
Costs are $30 each book(plus shipping) – and will autograph each, and if asked, I will sign them to you.
please add $4 for media shipping

Still looking for folks to pre-buy - as soon as it is published (sending off next week), will raise price to $30 plus $4 shipping

book is at publisher, going through process of them sending me a sample book, okaying,
then mass printing - sale until the published copies get here


The publisher just sent me the proof copy to look at. It is supposed to be here on Tuesday, then its 3 weeks after I give my go-ahead, slower than I thought it would be.


Ed

Just an FYI - the publisher is caught in the covid19 stuff, so they have not gotten past the proof stage - other items having higher priority, loss of a few employees to stay at home etc - I expect another month

Yes, will put out another note – as of late last week and then a discussion this morning – the publisher was knocked out by Covid-19 and now the sub-contractor who prints the pages has gone out of business, so new biz will print it, but they are just sending them the files.

I told them to go-ahead, instead of cancelling the order

LATEST updates...


The first publisher was shut down for almost 3 months - then sent me a 'proof' copy which needed some adjustments (name left out for a picture - the title / my name did not appear on the spine)


I fixed that and waited, then a month later, was told that the sub-publisher (where the proof copy came from) went out of business.
A new publisher ( i knew that Golden Belt publishing sent out some jobs, but was surprised) and anyway, they are supposed to send me a proof copy, once I say its okay after a few days, then it'll go for full publishing.


Its been very frustrating. I've tried to put information out on the threads, but its been awhile, will update.
