Hi John; not the exact date, but Beneath a Colesberg Sky is now complete! ( little teaser for you; Colesberg...? I wonder what it's about...? 8) Finishing last minute edits at the mo and waiting for the proof reader to throw it back at me and shout; 'fix the damned thing!' Anyway, really pleased with the results, 500 pages plus/minus so should kleep you busy for a day or two - with Amazon Kindle for digital and with Creatspace, their paperback outlet. Been a tough journey; lot of competition out there from WS's ghost writer, new publishers and fancy web site, however, worries me not; cometh the hour, cometh the man... we shall see; almost time to stick my neck out. May well, once the cover has been done, put it out on pre.order, haven't decided. Stay in touch and believe me when I say, 'moooocho thankyou for your support !!!' God Bless. You take care, J

OK Jeff - now we've got a puzzler!! Colesberg - Boer War springs to mind, plenty of action around Colesberg - but is that a Whittam subject I wonder?? Maybe, maybe not. Colesberg was the springboard to the north for the early adventurers - that's more like Whittam!! Yes - I go for that!! Looking forward to getting into your next epistle Jeff - good luck with it, sounds good.

Hi Ted, good to talk...see you're still wide awake and on the ball! Methinks thou knowest me too well...? One for the traditionalists; 1870 was a very good year...? :wink: Watch for the next clue. You take care, love you guys. J .

It has been quiet indeed the last months. But I'm sure the activity will be recharged with the new WS book :-). Keep up the good work!

I am now the proud owner of Beneath A Coleberg Sky - found the price to be very low which I'm not complaining about but thought it would be more.Have found the price of a lot of books to be right thru the roof on a lot of publications but that reflects the devalued Canadian dollar.

Wait a minute maybe it's a Christmas present from Jeff - serious Jeff many congratulations to you on publishing your third book

Hi John, once again your support is invaluable, but not taken for granted. Re the low price..? Would rather the readers enjoy the read, without being fleeced of their hard-earned bucks! Now go finish the book or I'll put the price up! :lol: God bless. ps, did you download from Amazon Canada, or .com?

Yes I am. I lIke my job here in Na. I wondered if you picked up that Rhodes also worked for some time in the SG Office in SA? I just started the first chapter of your book. Good read through the first pages. Admire people who are able to write an exiting story down on "paper". Just awaken my colleague readers about your new book! PS when will the bundle about your "youth experiences" in Zimbabwe come out?

Hi d, glad you're enjoying it. Re my 'Zimbabwe experiences'..? Can't give you a firm reply on that one, but have not given up on it. Stay well, hope you enjoy the rest of Beneath A Colesberg Sky. J
