After hearing Steve on 702 I was compelled to get the book.
I was subsequently pointed at this forum and then became even more determined to acquire the aforementioned tome...

Finally got my hands on it today!

Went to Exclusive Books at Clearwater Mall - the assitant did a lookup for me...No, they didn't have it but EB Cresta did, she said. Trying to confirm that we were talking about the same thing, I said "That is the one by Steve Hurlin?"

"Not sure", she replied, "I think it's by the big Adult World on Beyers Naude". (True story!!)

Interestingly, EB Cresta had it filed under "History".....His Story perhaps?

Mext book to buy is "There is a God" by Antony Flew...looks interesting?

Cool. Thanks for going to so much trouble to find my book. I will contact EB Cresta and ask them nicely to file it under the correct section (EB Centurion has my book right next to the ones by Richard Dawkins heheh). I hope you find some value in the book  Smiley

Steve, have you received any royalties to date? I haven't. From a blog http://mickrooney.blogspot.com/2009/02/raider-international-publishing.html it seems that people are having hassles with RPI. Have we been ripped off?

No royalties yet. Adam sent me an email saying it will be done shortly. I dunno - I'm a bit worried. Nice link, Brian, thanks. Especially the comments - I left one too.

Shit! It's taken them a YEAR to reprint?? You must be seriously pissed off. I think they are keen to get money in from new authors, but reluctant to pass any out on royalties. If I don't hear from them for another month, I'm thinking of asking Dan Barker to get one of FFRF's lawyers to send them a letter. I bought 20 books from them and waited months for the delivery. I finally threw my toys out the cot - nasty emails etc. - and received the books via DHL within a week. Let's hope the delay in royalties is due to inefficiency and not criminal intent.

Criminal intent! That's what is bugging me as well. He made the point that it is expensive to reprint my book  WTF!! I said so what? It's your problem, fix it! And cheques going missing in the mail...BS. I also got the feeling he's woo...am I mistaken? and now conspiracy theory kicks in Huh? I just wish he'd get my book sorted out...I can handle most of the marketing. EB Pavilion and Pmb have a couple of copies on the shelf, though.

Heheh. LOL. Now THAT would be funny. Maybe some woo will complain and Woolies will panic and take it off the shelf. Then normal people would moan and bitch, and they will put it back again. LOL. Nice post Mutton.  Grin
