    Ive got a couple of t-shirts with text on them and I often forget that I’m wearing them so I spend a fair bit of time wondering why someone seems to be looking at me out of the corner of their eye.

    Here, though the world explode, these two survive,
    And it is always eighteen ninety-five.”

      When my daughter was about three, we were visiting her grandma one day, who was wearing a T shirt with 'SOD THE POLL TAX' on it. Grandma said to us: "Don't worry, she won't know what it says", and my daughter piped up "What does SOD THE POLL TAX mean, Nanny?"

        Hi Fish,

        Do you know if your book will be available from Amazon once it's released on the 1st?

        There's no sign of it for pre-order yet and all book shops are closed here for the foreseeable future.

        Thanks, and I wish you the best of luck with it.

        Am really looking forward to reading it.

          Hi Ms Diddles, I was thinking the very same thing.

          I contacted the publisher, who has confirmed that the book will be available from Amazon, and most other online book suppliers.

                    So today is the day - Cutting Point should be surfacing among the book platforms on the net. My publisher tells me that Amazon and Barnes & Noble are normaly quickest off the mark. On other sites, it may take a while longer.
                    Whether or not we can all go home now is another matter ...

                          Fish, I hope this isn’t going to be one of those books where the date is endlessly put back? I remember a few years ago waiting for Richard Whittington-Egan’s book.
                          Regards

                            As I understand it, the book has been uploaded to the platforms. After that, it will be up on them pronto, so the wait will be over quite soon, Herlock. If it was up to me, I’ d pop over in person this evening!

                                Right, its up now, at Barnes & Noble, where it is searchable, and at Amazon US and Germany, where it is not searchable as yet - it takes some time for all the little bits and pieces to fall into place. The links https://www.amazon.com/dp/9187611376 and https://www.amazon.de/dp/9187611376 should take you there, however. The rest of the platforms, such as Amazon UK for example, will follow over the upcoming days.
