Curse Microsort Word's autofarmatting!
If you have purchased an older version, you may upload the latest revision at no cost- hell- anyone can have one of the new ones- I'm giving the books away!
It is curently 89th in the queue at Smashwords, so may no be available for a few hours.
The lesson here is- get a book on how to write before you start to write!
Bugger- something didn't work, so I have gone back to the saved copy.
It's updated, just not quite as nicely formatted as the version that failed. Back to the drawing board!
What they teach you in school here does NOT cut it!
There is a problem- the new version won't convert to EPUB and I think that the problem is at the other end. It used to work and I have only simplified the formatting- nothing new is in there.
Now its a 'wait & see'...

Meddlers In Time- Out of the frying pan, into the fire.
This is part one of the 35th century tales. It covers the period of when Wayne Jamieson is drafted into the Imperial forces, having spent the last forty years as a spacer, pirate, mercenary and lastly- as the commander of a successful privateer Free Company.
After leading a raid that turns the course of a civil war, he is shipped off-planet because of a large price on his head.
On his way back to Old Earth, he manages- as usual- to get involved in a desperate action with the other main character, Jenny DeVries.
This time they do not have the near-magical gates to help them.
This and the next four parts cover the shaping of the protagonists into the deadly weapons found in the first book of Meddlers In Time.
The next in the series is: Meddlers In Time- The Cockatoo River Incident and is due to be released early May 2010.

I have found a few formatting errors and have minimised the use of italics. I might like them but a lot of readers don't!
I have learned from this and are now doing all my work on one computer and NOT cut & pasting chapters into a master document- where most of my troubles started!
