Hi everyone,

First, let me apologise for taking so long to get back to you about my novel, Mr. Planemaker's Flying Machine.

Last October I signed a contract with PublishAmerica and sent my manuscript in mid-December.

In mid-January this year, I received an email from the publishers saying that the proofs for my novel would be arriving sometime during the following weeks.

I'm still waiting!

When the proofs do eventually arrive, I will be given fifteen days to proof read and make corrections. Two weeks later I will receive the book cover for my approval and then the book should be available to buy on-line from the publishers and bookstores such as Amazon.com.

Thank you for being so patient and I promise that the Leyland forum will be the first to know when my book is finally out.

Well Done! as a fellow 'artist', I appreciate how much dogged effort and tenacity it takes to see something like this through.
