Re: [FORMATTING] large document

A free alternative to Word is Libre open office. It is so long since I used word that I can't remember how it compare. The majority of oo users on CS consider that is superior.

Re: [SPAM] Strategy . . . Comments Wanted

Certainly appear to be being targeted by someone quite determined.

Could you create another section where all the untagged posts get diverted until they can be deleted?

Re: [INTRODUCTION] Sarah - Sleeping Cat Books

I bet you didn't expect a reply like that Sarah!

I must say there is a much higher standard of spam on this forum than on Cs. The Russian mafia?

Re: [SHIPPING] UK delivery times for proofs

I will accept that for some, or even many, the concept of the proof copy is important. Perhaps I should have clarified in my earlier post, that I cannot conceive in my own work that a proof copy would ever be relevant. Many of you have been publishing longer and much more prolifically than me so you...

Re: [SHIPPING] UK delivery times for proofs

I understand your table David and appreciate that there are savings on say twenty copies but I was specifically concerned about "proof" or more accurately for me "proofreading" copies of just two or three. To be honest Joe, I have never understood the rationale of a "proof" copy for dispute purposes...

Re: [SHIPPING] UK delivery times for proofs

So really not a lot has changed. When you add the cost of not very fast priority it comes to a great deal more than buying your book on Amazon prime at the minimum price and getting next day but one delivery. This is what I have been doing up till now and closing all distribution channels as soon as...

[SHIPPING] UK delivery times for proofs

Up until now I have not used the proof order system from CS for cost plus impatience. Nearly finished new book and am thinking of ordering say three copies to give to proofreaders, so the cost then becomes viable. But what about delivery times? Any UK authors (David?) ordered proofs recently? How lo...

Re: [facebook] How to use for promotion

Thanks for the suggestions both. All I need now is to overcome my aversion to Facebook. I liked your page, Sarah, will keep an eye on it.

[facebook] How to use for promotion

I have a Facebook account which I rarely use largely because at my age I have a large extended family. Unfortunately most of the under 50 year olds are, to put it kindly, lacking in gravitas. As a result they like and share the most appalling stuff and the language would have disgraced a navvy in my...
