Our History of the League of Empire Loyalists book is still progressing, and we are launching an appeal to help improve it.
Rob Black is busting a gut to make this a really comprehensive study of the League of Empire Loyalists. He has recently come upon a source of unused photographs taken by Fleet Street newspaper professionals. They are top quality but to buy the rights to each one he uses in the book is going to be £67.00 a pop! That is the reality of doing things properly and in a professional manner.
This book is going to be the definitive work on the LEL. Most of the literature previously written about us has been alien/enemy/state sponsored. Mummy's little darling's writing their student thesis before his/her gap year in Thailand and the internship at daddy's bank starts. We are different. Several of our people have spent a great amount of their own money researching this project. I believe that such dedication deserves our strongest support.
Rob is now considering whether the book should be A5 or A4 size. The cover is not yet decided. This should not affect the Autumn launch schedule but for the moment we are not taking any more advance orders because his final decision may well make a difference to the cost. Bear with us and I am sure we will have more news next issue. (Advance orders received before now will be honoured!)
