Dear friends and readers – particularly my INTERNATIONAL readers and supporters of MAXDOG…
This is a quick update. I am on holiday at the seaside with my family as I write this update and unfortunately my internet access is extremely limited here. I felt however, that I should inform you about the latest developments surrounding MAXDOG as soon as possible – particularly for those readers who have been waiting, expectantly to hear about where they can purchase copies of the book.
Most of my readers will be aware that MAXDOG is currently available in South Africa. The book can be purchased through many of the larger book retailers here – including Exclusive Books (Clearwater Mall, Cresta, Hyde Park, Greenstone, Centurion, Sandton City, etc) and Estoril Books. MAXDOG can also be purchased online through http://www.porcupinepress.co.za/ and http://www.kalahari.com./ The book can also be procured by contacting me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
The arrangements for my INTERNATIONAL READERS (in terms of printing and distribution) however are presenting a number of hurdles. I am doing my best to try and iron out these problems, but as it stands at the moment, it appears that the book may only be available on AMAZON (and other distribution channels) in the New year. In addition, that particular book (The international version) may either exclude the photographic colour insert (which is in the South African version of the book) or the photographs may appear in black and white. (A decision about this is pending)
In the light of this news and the uncertainty surrounding exactly WHEN MAXDOG will be available for my international readers, I would like to suggest that you consider ordering your copy directly from me. This way there is certainty surrounding your book and you are assured of the inclusion of the photographic section. As I have explained previously, the international postage charge is rather pricey (R150), which will put the cost of the book (for International readers) up to R310. I apologize for this, but my hands are tied in this matter. Please be assured that I have tried to do my absolute best for the benefit of my readers, but it is proving more difficult than initially envisaged.
If you would like me to post you your book at this price, please contact me: email@example.com and I will get your copy into the post as soon as I get back to Johannesburg (on Monday 19th December).
I apologize for any inconvenience caused with the delay in international distribution. I am doing my best to overcome the hurdles which have been presented to me and will update you as and when we have managed to find a solution.
