Having transcribed 94 letters by an officer of 67 Field Regt given to me by a relative with the intention of writing a book in his memory , I would like to allow people to read his stories told at the time in his own words. I compiled the letters into a book and followed a suggestion to get it published but the suggested publisher rejected it out of hand as all books based on letters are the same, repetitive, family biased and heavily censored. This was before they had seen it. The author of the letters was an advertising executive writing travel brochures for a living. His style of writing is of his time and descriptions startlingly colourful. I would like to post some excerpts for the membership to see. I am not trying to sell the book but within reason would print out copies from my computer at cost if there is an interest. Should the publishers be wrong I would consider getting it printed professionally to order if people would pay a fee in advance (as I am on a pension) but could not afford to include photographs as they would inevitably come from IWM (I know which I would use and have them on a non commercial licence) and cost close to £1000 for copyright for commercial use. However I dont want the book to be abused by people making printed copies to sell on line. Do you have any suggestions as to how to accomplish my project. The author of the letters was in a Survey Jeep which struck a landmine in Florence in Sept 1944, He lies with his colleagues in Florence War Cemetery. Uncle Target is the title of a sketch he produced on the wall in BHQ four days before he died, along with his son Mike Target and a sketch of Cleopatra clasping an asp to her bosom entitled I Know its silly but its nice.
