Armoured Farmer - It is, at last, ready!!!

#1
To all of you Armoured Farmer fans - assuming we had any.
You read the thread, and, now, you can buy the book!!! T Shirts may even come later?!?!?!

Anyway, the publisher has informed me the book is now ready for sale!! The cost is £9.95 with a post and pack of £1.75 total = £11.70.
You can purchase direct from the publisher at http://www.woodfieldpublishing.com/ . If you wish, you can buy through me, I'll match the price but, be aware, in order to gain royalties from the publisher I need to first sell 100 copies through them not including any I buy to sell on!! Either way email at malcycee@yahoo.co.ukand I'll see what I can do for you guys and gals.

I would like to publicly thank you all for your support in this and those that buy it...........I hope you enjoy it!! :wink:

MOD - Pretty please make this a sticky?!?!?!

A3B - have ordered the book direct along with a Tankies Tale (WW2). If your book does well, I may consider having mine published when I finish it - I'm currently on chapter 6 but it has taken me 12 years to get this far!!

Thanks very much mate for having the faith to order. I think you'll find it (my publisher says) a great contrast to A Tankies travels. Either way I hope you enjoy it, and, if you do, make sure you put some feedback up mate! :wink: If I can be of any help with your book ideas please give me a shout I'll do what I can. Illustrations too!!! I'll work some financial deal on them so you don't get stung!
Cheers again.

I noticed that, I shall, post haste, be advising the publisher - think he might have got confused over Jock Watt's book or something!?!?!

Dear God I hope so, to see it serialised in the SUN with pictures of me looking confused would do wonders for your B&B :D

Just to let you all know, the publisher has a bit of a backlog, hopefully due to demand being high?! Apparently the Postie strikes have been causing probs!!! From the publisher......Those that have ordered, apologies, the backlog will be cleared asap!!!
Soldier mag will be doing a review on it, I've spoken to the Managing Editor today!! Waterstones also seem interested. Anybody got any good (nice) ideas/leads on worthwhile places that could do a review?!?! And play nicely.....don't be rude!! Ta!

I just ordered one today. Hope it isn't too delayed, but at least i know why if it is now. At least mine is ahead of the huge queue that'll form when the Soldier magazine featuring it is published!

Glad you posted this as I was getting a tad worried about not receiving anything yet. I will put a post about your book on another forum that I contribute to - the 1RTR old gits website and I am sure more orders will be forthcoming.

Many thanks for that, I'm grateful. I'll try and keep everyone posted on the publishing........I have no prior experience of how these things work or the time involved!!!!

An update on book orders. I've spoken to the publisher this morning, They've overcome their 'technical difficulties' and despatches will be going out this week so thankyou again for your payience they should be with you asap!!! If anyone still hasn't ordered due to the publisher's website having problems they have now also got WEB SITE to use so if you have problems with the .com - try the other one!!! Thanks.

Having a moment of Genius a few weeks back, i bought myself this book for Christmas but forgot to wrap it :wink:

I've only got up to the FTX part and have been pissing myself regularly, not knowing if its old age or the effects of the Authors book. :?

Every chapter has something in it where i'm sure you'll all recognise the situation immediately and each story, tale or out and out act of lunacy would have been played out in each and every RAC regiment bar none, well nearly all.

I aren't going to bang on for age's, get your hand in your pocket and buy the thing, it's worth every penny and as i ain't being paid for all this one finger typing, i'll stop now.

Ask nicely and he'll put his monicur on it, thus making it all the more valuable when you get yourselves on 'Cash in the Attic' in years to come :wink:

Haven't started reading my copy yet but I'm holding back to take it on holiday to Spain next month so looking forward to a few laughs in the sun!!

I agree Grinner, one of the best tenners i've spent in a long while.
If anyone out there is unsure if they want it or not i can tell you now that you want it!

Mate, out of stock?? Hopefully they let you order one?? I presume you are on about the publisher? If you're having probs let me know and I'll sort it for you.

Folks the feedback I've had so far is very favourable so hopefully the book is achieving it's aim. I won't mind if people are not happy with the book, all feedback is appreciated.
It was never about me, it's more about all of you and your memories. I've tried to use my recollections in order to trigger your own. If you can have a laugh at my anecdotes along the way then so much the better, but your experiences are what made you and now, though mislaid sometimes, hopfully this will bring them back and then, the laughter continues but, about you and your mates. We are all made of memories and long may they continue!! You are all part of a unique brother and sisterhood!!
To all of you, many thanks for......being you!!!!!!

To all interested parties.
I have it on good authority that, the book is available through special order at Waterstones as the publisher has received orders from them.

The publisher prints on demand so those who have ordered should not get a long wait as demand has been high so the publisher is trying to build at least a small stock to save delays.
Thanks.
