I have just completed writing Choppertech and have had one Editor go through what I have written and correct my many mistakes.
The corrections have been done and now the difficult task of who to get to do my book publishing.

I hear so many bad stories about Publishers ripping new authours off.
I also don't want to be dominated by the Publishing house on what has been written because I write the book in the context of the time and place not a watered down version because Rhodesia has moved on to becoming Zimbabwe and we have all changed over the years.
The book touches on my and the many people of Rhodesia who went through the conflict, photographs and material I have managed to get over the last five years researching the book are awesome and never seen before.
Now what do I do?

I welcome comments from everyone on my book Choppertech.
I am interested especially on hearing from former ZANLA and ZIPRA combatants who also have thier story to tell.
