If you find a pic, right click and choose view source. Then copy the link it gives you. It should start like a web page address and end in .jpeg or such like. Mind the dimensions and size listed in the avatar control panel you can only use very small pics.

Good luck.

[quote=" rog"] Blimey you people haven't even read my section yet. It takes some spectactularly bad writing to get these kind of reviews before anyone has even SEEN it!?!?![quote]

That's the best y' gonna get from Bywater, rog! Tact and diplomacy ain't not his forty, like wot mine is.

[quote"rog"] I suppose that's a talent in itself! :))[/quote]

Fabulous!

And ePub too please! If I have all three, I'll bundle them and put them up at my website. Are we going to upload them to Smashwords too as a free ebook? I think maybe we should. :)

I've not read it yet, so let me know if I've destroyed the formatting or done anything silly with your section and i'll fix it in the mobi and PDF update this evening.

I'll do an ePub version but will need to get someone to test it works - I have no idea how to read thos files on a desktop and couldn't get an online reader to load the file.

No reason not to upload once we've got a version thag has at least been read through once.

Told you my chapter was an in-betweener that would normally be edited down to 250 words.

The next chapter does exactly that!!

The first two paragraphs are the truncated version of my entire section ;-)

Dear Pigfender

Bravo on the finished product.

When you come to recompile for the other formats, could you remove my # marks, which are just standard mark up for a blank line and shouldn't appear in the final version? Thanks.

It's pretty neat I think if you jump straight to the bit where they step through the door... But I only skim read so there is a chance it might be more necessary than I realized.

Not sure who wrote that section, but they may be able to give their blessing to the chop.

Looking forward to reading the whole thing over the coming days. Didn't realise my section was that early!

Its dam brilliant when you think about the info we each had and how its slotted together, shame about those that never did their chapter and never let you know either some of us could have done that maybe between us
Well done Pigfender and thank you for all your efforts to make this happen
