Sorry guys for the quiet period; thanks for the interest though. I'm still trawling my way through 100's of new interviews in an attempt to not make it not just an 'update' of the previous version - I'm on the last few now; then its the daunting task of getting the design together which has to be done from scratch as we are going A4 size this time.
Again, I really appreciate your kind comments and pleased to see interest still ongoing on its progress.
As for a completion date - sorry, but I don't really know; depends on how easily the design goes - unless of course anyone can help out with a good designer who is up-to-speed with 'InDesign'.
Thanks again; the new version will run at around 320 pages; will try not to loose much from the old book; but invariably this will happen; and there are a lot less photos this time; less than 100 to make way for the extra interviews.
