Rob Fielding wants to update fans who want to purchase an ebook version of his Port Vale book – “No Ordinary Season.”
It’s almost like producing a brand new 229 page manuscript. It’s therefore going to be a longer process than I first envisaged although I remain determined to produce an ebook version of the book…
Firstly, many thanks to the Port Vale supporters who have purchased copies of “No Ordinary Season” – Rob Fielding’s chronicle of the 2012-2013 promotion campaign. Rob will be making a donation to two Stoke-on-Trent charities for every copy sold, so your support of the book is much appreciated.
While the physical book has been on sale for some days, Rob is also aware that several fans expressed an interest in an “ebook” (electronic) version of the book and regrettably, this will NOT be available until early July.
Rob has explained more below:
“Unfortunately, the process of producing an ebook is far more complex than that of creating the physical book. It’s not just a case of simply uploading the manuscript – all the fonts have to be changed, the formatting changed and even the resolution of the book’s images altered. In short, it’s almost like producing a brand new 229 page manuscript. It’s therefore going to be a longer process than I first envisaged although I remain determined to produce an ebook version of the book.
“I’ve spent the best part of four months using all my spare time (on trains both to and from work, getting up earlier than usual to write a couple of paragraphs, using my evenings) to produce the book. With a day job, OVF to update and a family it’s been thoroughly exhausting and I need a rest. As this month has several family birthdays in it, which I want to attend, it makes sense to take a step back from ‘bookwork’ so I’m now aiming at a July completition date for the ebook.
“I hope fans who want an ebook version of the book will remain patient and I’ll hopefully be announcing that the ebook version is on sale in early July.”
