I have just learned that my publishers, Skycat Publications, are no more. The owner, with advancing years, has decided to retire, but the remainder of their stock will still be available from Coch y Bondu and Melbourne books, but I have a few here that I can offer at a discount, and signed by me, Penny Taylor.

 

Running Dog Maintenance (hardback) £20

 

Tales from the Field (soft back) £7

 

Both of the above in one order: £25

 

Please PM me if you are interested in either or both.

Joe: there really isn't enough demand for small publishers in hunting and country sports type books, still less for books on lurchers. It is a tiny market. Only very big book sellers who can afford to hold tons of books in stock are able to continue. Even Coch y Bondu and Melbourne say that their sales are dropping all the time. We hunting people are a fast dying breed, it seems.

I have the USB containing my books printer-ready. If ever I wanted to publish either book again, I could do so, but I really can't see this happening. Once I run out of books, as I said in the first post, they will still be available from Coch y Bondu for quite some time to come. I only have around 50 books here with me, so when they're gone, they're gone.

The training book I was working on will never see the light of day, a shame, but I can't afford to self publish it for the few sales it might make.

Sorry to add this, but it appears Paypal charge for the transaction. So I'm adding £1 to cover that. I'll pay the postage.

I'm almost a complete technophobe so I haven't a clue what that would entail.  :icon_redface:
