I don't know if you already have a Kindle copy of my two latest books, but I have set up a promotion for free copies this coming weekend (May 4th to the 6th).
1:  The new edition of New Zealand Glass 2nd Edition: you can get a free copy of the latest Kindle version this coming weekend. Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/New-Zealand-Glass-Edition-ebook/dp/B00BT0ND3Q/
Even if you downloaded a free copy in March, this is a much improved version thanks to all the feedback I received. If you like it, some feedback on Amazon.com would be greatly appreciated.
The promotion starts at midnight US Pacific Time which I think translates to some time in the morning in the UK. It runs for three days only.

2: And while you are there, I have another promotion for a free copy of my other book on London Lampworkers. The link for this one is http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BHRQS9W/ and it runs for two days.

Hope this is helpful. Please tell anyone else you think might like a free copy.
Very best wishes,
Angela

Just purchased the paperback and am waiting with baited breath for the trilogy.  How soon will the Bimini and Komaromy books be available?  With more than 300 pieces of vintage and contemporary lampworking, and always looking for new pieces, putting an id to the maker is paramount to the collection. 
If you use it, someone designed it.

Hi,
That sounds like a great collection. Do you have any labelled Pirelli in your collection? The Pirelli book will be finished soon but there is room for more pictures of labelled or very rare pieces.
The plan is to finish and publish the Komaromy book later this year, and the Bimini book in the second half of next year.
Very best wishes
Angela

Sorry I know we don't have any marked Pirelli pieces, in fact I doubt if we have any, but won't know for sure until the book is available.   :-*.  Is there a way that you can notify us when they come out?  We also have a fair number of Italian lampworked items, mostly figural.  I had the Bimini book, but loaned it out and haven't seen it since, grrrrr.  The latest piece is a deer ornament in a pinkish red with the somewhat exaggerated look like Bimini animals were.  I think I had seen in the Bimini book, however.  If you get a chance, do a search for Carmen Lozar.  She is a friend of ours, who was just recognized as a up and coming glass artist.  I think you might like her lampwork.

Hi,
I'll find a way to let you know when the book comes out.
Thanks for the information in your post.
Best regards
