If you're wondering why there hasn't been a mention of the two books I did for Carlton, the explanation is that there has been a slight delay at the printers for both Unleash Hell and Death or Glory. As far as I'm aware, the books are shipping to Carlton within the next few days and should be distributed immediately. I believe part of the problem was the time it took to get the artwork cleaned up.
No such problems with The Bumper Book of Look and Learn. It's out and copies are selling well at Amazon. Tonight we're at 894 but we almost hit the top 100 at one point.
And now, the news...
