When I click the read online button and the book (either of them) appears, if I try to click the right arrow to move down a page, the page scrolls down but then immediately flicks back to page 1! Now this may be a quirk of my new computer (I burnt the MoBo on my old one the other day!) but I would like someone to check that it isnt a new bug at the CN end. Also, I noticed that the sales value showing against the new book does not tie into book sales royalties showing on the main royalties page. I wonder if that is due to my cock up when I deleted that book in error? Other than those possible glitches the books continue to sell well and i am really pleased.. (more) and won+3

The whole process this year has been much more straight forward and despite a few daft things I have done along the way, it has gone really well. Please pass on my thanks to Anna and Georgina who have both been sorting me out along the way. The first book has recently passed 250 sales (including Kindle sales) and is still selling and I am absolutely over the moon with that. Here's hoping the new book is even more successful. Best wishes. DLW (more) and received+3

Anna I am in trouble again! I have sent an e mail to team@completelynovel.com but in case that is seen later than this - i am sure I have deleted the new paperback by mistake. I was just looking through the details and when I saw it was all OK I hit a delete button instead of escaping and the paperback edition disappeared. HELP! (more) and earned+3

I have sent two e mails to the team and have heard nothing. I repeat them below for info: Please. please, please will someone explain what is going on? I have given you 24 hours but have just checked and there are still problems with covers not showing, the free read pages for the old book was still 292 and now the submitted for distribution icon for the new book is no longer checked! I am not prepared to leave the old book "open" for anyone to read completely so I have just gone in and corrected that AGAIN. Why is the new book now not submitted for distribution? This is a time critical book that has to be available before the new football season, and ideally in the summer, the only time people are interested in reading about last season. I had everything done a week ago and the submitted for distribution button was correctly showing green. You may not remember, but Oli will, that I had a major problem with tgetting the first book to Amazon. We all thought it was submitted and working but it wasn;t and I lost months of availability. I cannot contemplate suffering that fate again. Please let me know what is going on David Watkins AND In addition to the previous e mail I also now notice that on the front screen (that is the screen the public would get if they searched on "watkins" and then clicked on me) there is no "read this book on line option for the new book. Why is that? The whole thing is a mess at the moment. But again, I stress, the most important thing is that the new book gets to the on line retailers ASAP so please find out why that "submitted for distribution" button is now not checked and let me know if I need to go in and do that again. DLW Please will someone get in touch to let me know the status. The key issue remains , why has the check against "submitted for distribution" disappeered for the new book? It was OK last week. DO I need to go through that bit again? I repeat, this is a time critical book and I am concerned that it is stuck not going anywhere at the minute. (more) and won+3

Th...Hi Keith The new book is now available on CompletelyNovel as an e book or Amazon as a Kindle. The paperback is available on CN too obviously and Amazon will follow in due course. Looking at the many negative comments going around the Leeds fans' forums at the moment I am not sure my title is very appropriate! There might have been some light at the end of the tunnel a few weeks ago but it appears someone has now switched it off!!!!Let's hope that once Warnock gets back off his holidays something starts to happen - otherwise I am going to dig out my boots and get off up to Thorpe Arch! Let me know what you think of the book if you read it, I believe it is a step up from the last one in terms of interest although there was of course plenty of material to go at throughout the season. Best wishes David (more) and bagged+3
