NED KELLY Distributor, Dennis Jones & Associates, have just asked for another 100 copies of the book, after the first 100 copies they took were sold to various Booksellers around the country. Does your Bookseller have a copy? Ask them to order a copy it, so the message gets out there! No news yet on when The Weekend Australian is going to run Cefn Ridout's Review of the book... So, given that there has been next to no media coverage of the book (not that I haven't tried!), sales figures are very encouraging... I have been meaning to approach some of the Australian Comic Specialty Shops about carrying the book, but time has yet to allow me to do so. I know Ace Comics and Games in Brisbane and Hunters for Collectors in Newcastle have copies, and I welcome any retailer getting in touch with me, as it may be a while before the reverse happens!
