Is this open internationally, or just to readers in the UK?

I would imagine internationally - I don't know all the details, I'm afraid. I think the form's pretty short, though, so just pop one over. They're only a very small publishing house, so I reckon they would be happy to open the international doors of participation.

Cheers

Russ

You beat me to this Russell! I've been spreading the word as well and hoping that readers will ask for more historical fiction (of all types!).
By Loyalty Bound - the story of the mistress of Richard III.

I downloaded the application but my computer won't open it. Says the file is corrupted or something.

:eek: Is it all of those or just one?

Having never made an international call, I'm at a loss as to how to write my number down. Does the local area code go in parentheses? Or does the country code? Help, oh ye more sophisticated world phoners!
