I finally managed to get confirmation of the proof being ready. Once it's checked, and I give the thumbs up, it will go to distribution and be available to the public.

Best of luck with that. My imagination says there are some laffs between the covers.

Thanks. Yes, it is a collection of humourous, and not so humourous stories. Some were posted here. Many were inspired by 24 Hr Campfire members. Virtually all are about hunting, shooting and the outdoors.

This COVID stuff slows everything down. I am at a loss to understand exactly why, in this case. Everything was handled via the computer - emails, texts and file uploads.

I figure to make it available to the Campfire crew at a discount. Signed.

I received the proof copy in the mail today. A proof copy is a pre-production book that is checked for completeness, cover quality, etc.

It was a bittersweet day. Dad and I discussed the book earlier this year at his birthday party (he was a leap year baby) and he was waiting to get a copy. One of the first edits was changing the dedication page.

From here, a quick note for the thumbs up and it will go into print.

Steve;
Good afternoon to you sir, I hope the last day of July was a decent one for you and you all are well.

Please accept my condolences on the passing of your father.

We lost my much loved mother in law in May as well and the whole beer virus thing has prevented us from having a formal family gathering.

Anyways sir, I'm sorry for your loss.

As mentioned too, once you have copies available to hit Canada Post, please let me know where to send the money.

Thanks and all the best to you folks as we head into August.

Dwayne

Hi Dwayne. I will definitely let you and everyone else know when all the hurdles have been cleared.

I wanted to post this too. My daughter gave me a present to kick off the book. Apparently, she bought it a while back. Because of my father's passing and the inevitable delays associated with getting a book ready, she gave it to me today.

The fists inside the heart represent me and my youngest grandson, who is pictured on the back cover.

Another update

The price of the book is $18.95 CDN + shipping. Within Canada, Canada Post wants $5. To the States, they want $11.
---

Total, within Canada - $23.95, all in.

Amazon Canada

Total, to the US - $29.95 CDN - Don't forget that the US dollar is worth more than ours. In USD, the price is about $23. all in.

Amazon US

Internationally, $40.95 CDN, but I doubt that anyone overseas will order.

A heads up for US and International buyers - - - Buy it through amazon! Shipping is cheaper. But you will not get a signed copy.

Steve;
Top of the morning to you sir, I hope all is well in your world and you're keeping cool enough.

Sorry to ask what is likely an obvious question, but since you've given the Amazon link, is that the preferred way you like to sell the book?

I'll be ordering one via some manner, or better said seeing my technical ineptitude attempting to order one!

Edit to add;
It would be my preference to have a signed copy because - well you know! cool

Thanks in advance.

Dwayne

Good morning. I have books coming for anyone who wants a signed copy. Amazon is another way for people to get one, if they don't care if their copy is signed.

Some people choose amazon because of the lower shipping charges. In Canada, if you order over $35 worth of stuff, shipping is free. With the ongoing COVID scare, more people are ordering stuff online. Amazon has a contract with the post office to distribute their stuff.

I live just outside a small village. At Christmas, the village PO is piled high with amazon boxes. It's been like that for a few years. Fewer letters. More packages.

Thanks for the kind words. I will give it my best. smile

And thanks for letting us know the price, shipped, in the US. I am a little worried because Covid is affecting things. Could you let me know when you get it? I am hoping for fast delivery.

I ordered my copy today on Amazon.

By letting them wait a week to deliver I got an extra $1 for my cheap mil-history book habit on Kindle.
