I need to merge these two accounts then (one person may not have two accounts), do you want to be neil or wavygravy?

No problem, gives me a chance to try out the forum "merge users" feature. Seems to work, you'll probably find all wavygravy posts are now attributed to neil, and your postcount includes both.

Yes, I did some proof reading and made some suggestions. So if it's any good, then I can take all the credit. If it's rubbish, blame SH.

Actually, it's very good. I'll be selling them from the cafe store too.

In fact our Pete appears in the book in one of the shots, in a kind of "Where's Wally" fashion. If you can spot him you might win an all-expense paid two-week cruise aboard the Woolwich Ferry.

if your selling them from the cafe does that mean we might be able to get one with yours and stephens autograph....i`m not a collector of autographs really but you never know they might be worth a bob or two in the future.

that would be cool :)
Hmmm, no, you'd get have to them singed from shwoodwind.co.uk

I'm not the author so I wouldn't feel comfortable signing a book by someone else.

But I'm happy to sign my books or DVDs or CDs if anyone wants.

Possibly makes them worth less.

Haynes Sax Manual

I've just received my copy of Stephens' sax manual from Amazon - superb! The photos and writing set a new standard for books about the saxophone. Get it on your Xmas wish list quickly before the print run sells out. No time to fill you in any more, since I must get back to reading it, if I can drag it off a friend of mine who has just come for lunch. (He doesn't even play the sax!)
Needless to say, I have no connection with SH, excepts as an admirer of his web site.

Have just ordered it.
How can it be sold at £6 below rrp with free delivery?:w00t:
Its not as if its an old book.
Not complaining, just wondering.
Still, I suppose as long as stephen gets his bit for writing it.

This is the reason I am not selling it. I had planned to. I spoke to Haynes as I was going to order 50 copies and I can't get it wholesale as cheap as that!

But if you buy it from Stephen Howard's site, you can get it singed.
