The record is a signed (by me as well, but mainly by other more deserving people) copy that went for £599, and some prices on Amazon got up to £399 for a while. Of course I earn bugger all, but it does make you feel good.
A bit of advice Neil, make sure you get the first copy off the line, then get all the contributors to sign it, and then put it somewhere safe. I did that with my first TV script, my first book and even the tape of my first televised documentry, but I didn't keep a copy of Leap, mainly because I still have most of the research stuff, and the original manuscript to refer to, but I really wish I could have Arthur's artwork for the cover. He nailed my request first go, even Jean said "oh that's superb, he looks like he could still get that back".
Neil has the opportunity to release the definitive book on K7, he has access to the actual craft, and a freedom I didn't have. K7 was still on the bottom of Coniston, plus I still ave mixed feelings about seeing her, and working with Jean,Tonia etc, I was asked not to include pictures of the accident, which made the last chapter a little harder to do, but that's how they wanted it. Neil can just go for it, and I' like a lot of other people, can't wait!!
