Extract from: Occasional Diprose family newsletter, No. 3 November 2013 by Elizabeth Parkes
Books for sale
The purpose of this newsletter is to let you know that I intend to cease book sales at the end of June 2014. Also the website will vanish mid May 2014. This is your last chance to buy from me a book for yourself or those extra books you have been thinking of getting for your children or grandchildren, or to let others know who have been thinking of buying a book or two.
From now until 30 June 2014 these are available at the special prices:
Volume 1 (with CD of Volume 2) $85.00 plus packing and postage
Volume 2 $60.00 plus packing and postage
I will never sell the books at less than the pre-publication prices of early 2008. This is in fairness to those who supported the book publication enterprise and bought books at that time.
