I'll see what I can dig out.

Congrats to the familiar names I see up there and to the other authors as well!

Good on you. Is this the German magazine Hardline? How about a link? Where else are you actively promoting your creation?

I've PM'ed you, Ollie :)

Deb, it's not the German magazine. We're promoting it at the usual suspects - Bebo, Facebook, Myspace, Technorati etc etc. I'll PM you now with further info. :)

Hi Steve,

Just replied to your PM and I now that I have visited the link provided here, I've been to the site and several of my questions are already answered.

It looks very nice! I'm going back to explore some more. :)

Will definitely check it out later.  A sizeable chunk of today is going to be used up taking my daughter's little 1968 Mini to the Mini-Doctor (actully a firm called 'Minis - R - Us').  In truth she will be driving, I'm just along for 'visual ballast', in case the mechanics think they're dealing with a 'little dumb blonde'.  A Big Hairy Dad in the background should at least stop them telling her they need to 'replace the winker fluid'.

In reality she's too smart to fall for much, but car repair is still pretty much a man's world.  But she learns fast and has quite a logical approach to problem solving.

My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

Okay, now that I have perused the site a bit more, I'm quite taken with the attractive authors we have. David and Chris, those are very nice photos. The bios read well and I'm very curious about this Brigadier person. Is he from here? Sounds like quite a character.

Oh, and Maxie has a 'Debs' in her book and short story profile...Deb scurries off to read Maxine's story.

Here is the Myspace Link. I have tried to give all the contributors a little bit of space each, but until I get the last of the bios from you I can't use any more. Please send me them as soon as possible. Those that wish to have a photo in the author albums please semd me a jpeg. Thats all folks!! :)
