About me

David Watkins spent 33 years in industry working as a Finance Director for various organisations before he “retired” in 2011. ‘Leeds United in pursuit of the Premiership’ was his first published work and he followed that with six further books documenting his travels following Leeds United home and away. He has followed the fortunes of Leeds United since the 1960’s and is now a home and away season ticket holder.

It really is better than I thought possible. Hence, quite what the issues the other guys have raised I am unsure. Many many thanks for your help.I look forward to writing the sequel during the coming year. David Watkins (more) and earned+3

I am desperate to start to publicise my book but must wait 'til I have vetted a hard copy! Any comment on this quality issue people have mentioned? I will know soon enough I guess. Also, is there a facility to add in photo pages (like you see in most sports paperbacks with a few photo pages in the middle)? I am loving the whole CN experience - but it is starting to take over my life!Thanks for getting back and apologies for the constant questions! D (more) and bagged+3

I experimented by pasting in the read link that is set up in one of my pages and i was surprised that it took me straight to my book and had every page available to see. I know that only I know that link at the moment but surely if i give that link to anyone they can then read the whole book online without paying? Where am I able to limit the pages that can be seen that way? I am also slightly nervous about the one or two posts about print quality from Lightening Source - is that an issue? I am told my first hard copy should be with me any day. I am enjoying my first experience with CN so far. David (more) and won+3
