Shameless indeed it is....but hey hoShameless plug for the 2019-20 Arrse Up Face Down Premier Fantasy League thread in the Sports Forum.
cannon foddernew players!
Details on how to join (easy), how much it costs (nothing - OK, maybe your dignity), how to play (do a lot, or do nothing), Hints & Tips (take em, or leave em), Top Prize for the Winner (Self Esteem, and sometimes when all is said and done, not even a 'Well done, or Kiss my Arrse from the failures).
Yep, fully concur.....Ola, bom dia, hello! Tiz I! The famous published fcuking author. Long time I know. Hope this finds you well.
So, a read back of this thread should wise up you who don't know the situation vis a vis the publication of the book and the sorry tail of cnuts, liars, thieves, chancers and general fcuking wakners I've encountered in the publishing world. But anyoo, a brief recap.
First taken in by an ex Rupert who rushed the book into production with neither proofing nor editing. It was a heady time for a first time author dumb siht and with my literary head in the clouds I didn't notice the cnut de-breek and shaft me. Last heard from him when his company MLRS went tits up at the end of 2014 and he promised 'not to come in my mouth'. Or was it 'the cheques in the post'. Canny mind. It was a while ago but needless to say fcuk all arrived.
And so, life rolled on and sorting something out was always on the cards but, well, I live in the fcuking Algarve and am surrounded by sun,sea, sangria, Sagres beer, vinho tinto, Porto and G&Ts for 3 bucks that are so big you can swim in them. So y'know. Distractions and that.
So anyhoo, a couple of years ago I became aware of an outfit by the name of Caliver Books. Never heard of the fcukers so got in touch to enquire WTF? This is when I discovered this pile of fcuking mince in the book..........

I mean WTF!? That's some dose of fingers in the pie and given that all the batsards did was publish the draft that I cobbled together and submitted and the son in law designed the cover art work, what did all these fukcers do!?
Of course this should have all been clear in the contact I signed, no? Aye right. Honour amongst Vets, gentlemens agreements blah dee fcuking blah. They really could see a dumb fcuk coming from a mile away.
Anyhoo myself and Caliver came to an agreement to revamp and re release the book. This was an easier option than going down the legal path would have been. He promised to 'not come in my mouth' as well. Guess what? Now he doesn't speak to me. Last heard from a year and a half ago. The on going crap with him is cease and desist letters and complaining to Amazon.
The current 'Master Plan'? Edited, rewritten and addition material. Done. Spell checked. Dun. Formatted for E thingyz. Wurk in prugress. Idea is to self publish, print the books myself and do all the things that the grubby fcuking parasites were doing.
This is a work in progress but nearly there.
On going distractions? This month is the second anniversary of The Belfast Bitch having her treatment for throat cancer. It's been a long, long journey that taken it's toll both emotionally and financially but the light at the end of the woods is in view.
There is, of course, the ever present distraction of being surrounded by cheap booze as well!
Ubique Ya Bass!
Well I have finished reading Stumpy And The Auld Sapper now and so has my Dad. My Dad who is 90 years old and was a Dog Handler in the Army out in Egypt thought it was a brilliant read.Where did you order it from and please let me know if it arrives, I had the loan of a copy and thought it was a great read. Should really get one of my own and read it again.
Specific bit...I am only posting this here as it showed up whilst I was searching for Auld Sapper's book.
The Homemade Workshop : Build Your Own Woodworking Machines and Jigs
Hamilton, James: Nubs, Stumpy
I can't help thinking that Stumpy Nubs is a nom de plume for a not very good woodworker. A sort of Reg Prescott of the timber world. With wanking spanners like this:

Or maybe our resident woodturner. Is that @LEGZ30 (my memory is farqued).
...and you would be wrong sir.I can't help thinking that Stumpy Nubs is a nom de plume for a not very good woodworker. A sort of Reg Prescott of the timber world. With wanking spanners like this:
I didn't say that.
