British Traction In The Midlands 1997-2008
By Kevin Hunt
Kevin Hunt had been a
railway enthusiast since the 1960's after visiting his grandparents house that
was close to a main railway line and had written about his exploits in
photographing and cataloguing midland locomotives. He decided that he would like
to see his work in print so looked around for a publisher. Unfortunately his
computer skills were not quite as good as they needed to be for him to finish
the production of the book himself and he could not interest a large publisher
due to the amount of preparatory work needed on the book before publishing.
Kevin had come across my name and early this year he phoned me out of the blue
as I am a local small time publisher and asked if I might be interested in
helping him publish his railway book. After a brief discussion on the phone we
arranged a meet and we came to an agreement that if I helped him with the
preparatory work and he published the book himself he would give me a little
acknowledgement to myself for my work on it and would permit me to sell some
copies of the finished the book. The book was duly completed and is in a similar
format to my own published works and at a similar price.
N.B. The first edition was as a paperback and was only in black & white, but the updated colour version now retails at £9.99 with the new E-book selling at only £7.75.
