    The deadline for pre-ordering to get your name in the booklet was 5pm Friday 8 September.

See the album page for details.

    Please make it clear in the e-mail that you are aware that your name is too late for inclusion in the list.

    I acknowledge ALL orders (within a day or two), so if you don't hear from me your order has NOT been received by me.

    When you press send the form SHOULD send the information I need to your default e-mail program, looking something like the layout above. (This is the part which last time did not workin all cases, possible to do with different operating systems and e-mail configurations - all I can say in my defence is that it worked perfectly on all three of my PCs!) Some operating systems may ask you whether you want to switch applications - you do: to your default e-mail. If you have other issues in trying to order, please contact me at

    When you send this e-mail you are committing to buy the number of copies you have asked for of The Ferryman's Curse for the region you have selected. To clear the contents of the form press Reset.

    If you have problems with the form...

  • Tip 1. Sometimes, that may be because your internet browser (Firefox, Chrome, etc.) thinks your e-mail default program is something other than the one you normally use if you go in to Options in the browser and check that and ensure it points to the e-mail app you do use, that may help. Mail for Windows 10 seems to be the main culprit, though e-mails sent from smartphoes have also failed.
  • Tip 2. Copying and pasting the filled out form doesn't always work the content of the form boxes doesn't always come through on an e-mail.
  • Tip 3. If all else fails, just send me back details on a plain e-mail to and I'll generate an invoice.
  • Stage 2 - We will send a Paypal invoice to your e-mail address

    Please note this may not happen immediately as the process is not automated. If you do not receive an invoice after 3 working days please e-mail

    When you get the invoice via e-mail, click on the "View and pay invoice" link.
    When the invoice is displayed click on "Pay now"
    The next screen should have two options on the right - Pay with my Paypal account or Pay with a debit or credit card. Click on the first of these, and carry on.
    But NB if you do have a Paypal account you may not be offered the chance to pay by credit/debit card.

    Stage 3B - make payment via Paypal with a credit or debit card
