An Overdue Update

5 likes

Hi there,

If you supplied your address details before Christmas (before the 18th Dec) then hopefully you have received your book by now. If you have supplied your address since, then your book will be going out in the next few days as the second batch of books arrived yesterday from the printers.

I have sent out all the framed A3 posters bar 1 (still waiting for details of poster required) and 2 of the framed A2 posters. The remaining A2 posters are currently being printed and I plan to get them signed by Bob in the middle of February - I will then send them on.

Chris Abbott is helping me put together the Martin Galway CD and that is now my next focus. We have all the music collated and plan to create the Master CD in the next few days - once created I then have to send them to Martin in Austin, Texas to sign, and then he has to send them back. I can then send them on. As you can imagine, this posting across to Texas and back is going to take some time.

Bob is hopefully going to get me back the personalised art back by the middle of this month. I will keep you pledgers informed.

Jonathan Dunn is working on the Memory Stick track as we speak (I already have Gari Biasilo's track) and Jonathan's may actually include a video as well!

**** I have 1 GOLD book and 1 SILVER book spare if anyone would like to make an offer *****

Books are also on sale, as well as PDF and Flip Book, on the new book site : www.oceanthehistory.co.uk

We are also having the book converted to iBooks for the App Store.

Let me know what you think of the book in the comments and also let me know if your art has arrived.

Roger and I are already talking to another rather large 1980's gaming company for our next book - watch this space.

Here are some of the Ocean guys with their book and pics from the book launch before Christmas:
