Update to “News and Views”

An update to “News and Views”, from an email just received from the British Library regarding ebook submissions:

Dear Steve,

 

At present, electronic publications are submitted to us on a voluntary basis, although Legal Deposit for electronic material is likely to come into force next month. Currently, where a publication is produced in print format, there is still a requirement for this to be sent to us, and we would not require an electronic version as well. Material can be submitted to us by e-mail attachment to this address, providing the total size of the e-mail is no larger than 5 MB. As you have mentioned, PDF is our preferred method but we can accept other formats just as ePub or mobi files.

Hope this information helps.

Regards,

A refreshingly clear reply!  Note that “Legal Deposit for electronic material is likely to come into force next month”.

About Steve

An author since the age of 13 years, writing again dominates my activities. My "Imagineer-ing" blog is my primary site. Also: Beginner knitter since November 2010. Favourite knitting techniques: cable and lace. Beginner cross stitcher. Beginner jewellery maker. With the promotion of self publication and all the other work that has been going on here, Dad decided around 2am this morning (22/11/2013) that it was time to begin his next adventure. He was seen off earlier the previous evening by myself, my brother, my sister in law, and my sister, as well as his wife (our mum), and an enigmatic being known only as A Lorraine. After this time of story telling, laughing, crying, joking and mickey taking, we saw how tired both mum and dad were, and we decided to leave them under the (sometimes) gentle care of The Lorraine. When Dad found the timetable for his travels, he let Mum know gently, which woke her from her drowsing, then, with the same gentleness he showed in this universe, he boarded his favourite mode of transport, the Interdimensional Steam Train, and set off with a smile and a wave. For those of us closest, that smile was a reminder that his pain has ended, and the wave, an indicator that he will pop in to all those that knew him, from time to time. Usually at the most inconvenient and in opportune moments he can. While we are sad that he is no longer here, we are happy he now has no pain, and is experiencing more extraordinary things that his writers mind will be frantically weaving into a new story.
