We have talked about this book for so long - and finally the first of a four book Trilogy about Pirelli, Bimini and Komaromy glass has been published as an ebook on Amazon.
If you search for London Lampworkers on Amazon.co.uk (or Amazon.com if you are in the US) you will see it.
At the moment you can buy it for 1.95 (pounds) or US$2.99 but if you wait until the weekend  I have arranged that you can get a copy free (from Saturday until Monday night).

We need feedback so that I can correct any errors. I have already found a formatting error and one vase that I have called a decanter!!  Please put feedback about errors here on the Message Board so I can correct them. Positive feedback that you like the book would be more than welcome on Amazon.

I hope you are going to enjoy this book, and the rest of the Trilogy that will follow.

I've been privileged to see this pre-publication and it makes fascinating reading. I can't wait to see the rest of the trilogy. :)

Thanks Nancy and Anne - I'm biting my fingernails on this first day of publication, hoping people are going to like the book. So its really good to hear from you.

What I should be doing is getting on with the next book, which will be the one on Pirelli. I have a huge number of photographs and lots of really interesting information that hasn't been published before and we are about half way through that book. It shouldn't be too long.
I'm still receiving photographs of Pirelli figurines with labels -people have been great. If there are any more out there - I'm here waiting and they really will be appreciated - angelabowey@xtra.co.nz

Thanks again, Nancy and Anne. I really need the encouragement just now.

A small point of pedantry: how many parts are there, as
Quote
a four book Trilogy
is impossible... Four parts would be a quadrilogy.

That's not uncommon, but they start off as trilogies that Topsy. And it doesn't answer the question.

Hi Christine and Anne,
There are four books in this Trilogy. I want to call it a Trilogy and not a Tetralogy nor a Quadrilogy, partly because I like the word and partly because its a bit eccentric and I always longed to be eccentric.
I just watched a youtube video of Carson Taite asking Lea Santos's why she called her four book series a trilogy and Lea explains: "because it's wrong, and that makes me happy".
And then there's this from Wikipedia: "Richard Wagner's epic series of operas, Der Ring des Nibelungen, is sometimes referred to as a trilogy even though it consists of four works: Das Rheingold, Die Walküre, Siegfried, and Götterdämmerung. The first work, Das Rheingold, is shorter than the other three, running a bit over 3 hours, while all the others are over five. "
And my first book is shorter than the other three.
Usually, as Christine says, a trilogy that has more than three books gets that way because more were added later - as in Isaac Asimov's Foundation trilogy, or Douglas Adam's Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.
I hope you can humour me and let me call our four books a Trilogy.
And most important of all, of course, please read the first book and let me know what you think.
All the very best
Angela

You can call it what you like, but people like to know what they're expecting  ;D
