I have been inundated with e-mails requesting copies of Choppertech when it gets published.
The book is nearly completed now and I am just checking on a few dates and incidents to ensure the information is as correct as I can get it to be after all these years.
I am presently in Spain on a firefighting contract with Abu Dhabi Aviation and on my return to South Africa in early November 2008, will begin negotiations with different publishers.
I have heard bad stories from fellow Rhodesians on their attempts to get their books published and experiences of publishers taking advantage of them, so in the end I will have to be cautious in my dealings.
I hope to have the book edited by the end of December 2008 and published early in 2009.
For any further enquiries or if you require a signed copy please e mail me in good time.

I am interested especially on hearing from former ZANLA and ZIPRA combatants who also have thier story to tell.
