Hi
Is the book selling well so far? I hope so x

Beryl Brennan


Bonjour

Yes thanks, lots of interest. Still working on getting a print edition too. And searching for bi-lingual English/Spanish translators who dont cost an arm and a leg!

Im just wondering if between myself and my spanish friend we could do it but it might take us ages fitting it around the kids and the refuge. I am downloading the book tomorrow arranged with my friend so I will see how long the book is and if i think it would be possible. its knowing someone that would do it at a minimum cost that is the problem. With the crisis so strong here no one wants to do anything for free. x

Hey Beryl,

Thank you so much for having written this!

Best; Kate

Great, will be very interested in your
comments. And if you would like to send a review to Scoot Publishing, that
will be included on their website. Any comments, good or bad, will be
appreciated.

Hi Beryl

Any idea when a print edition might be available? Would prefer a hard copy myself and think it would make a great gift too. I do spread the word whenever I can about the plight of these wonderful dogs but to be able to give a book to friends to read at their leisure so they can fully appreciate what is going on in Spain would I'm sure have more impact. I hate to mention Christmas so early in the year but this would make a great gift for any animal lover. I'll definitely be ordering when a print copy is available.

Cheers
Suzie

hi Beryl,

Where can I buy your book? I have been always a volunteer for the spanish galgos and I would love to read it. If you would have ever the idea to translate it in Dutch, don't hesitate, I can help you out then.

Hope to hear soon from you.
Greetings Nina

Bonjour Nina

If you click on the picture of my book on the
right-hand side of Galgo News home page, this will take you direct to Scoot
Books and you can order a copy of the book and pay by Paypal.

Well, I need to get it translated into Spanish and
French, I hadnt thought of Dutch. Wait till you receive the copy of your
book, you might think it is too long! Thank you for your very kind offer
which is very much appreciated. The quotes I have had for translation into
French are 4,000 and 7,000 euros!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for reading GN and supporting the galgos and
I will be pleased to receive your comments when you have read my
book.

Hello Beryl,

I have ordered and paid for a print copy (22nd May) to be sent to Denmark in Western Australia to Ms Lexie Nicholls who donates generously to the cause of these beautiful dogs and after no response from linkay@scootbooks.com to several enquiries, I am getting a little worried. I'm reading now that it may not be in print as yet - could you please let me know; I would be very grateful.

Yours very sincerely and with appreciation,
Margaret

Recieved my print copy and I am delighted with the work Beryl has done. Some of the content was extremely distressing and will admit to a tear or two but I am positive that this book will have an impact on re-educating Spains youngsters about these gentle creatures, the spanish galgo! 'Ode to a Galguero' by Charl also had me in tears. I imagined it all too well whilst reading it on the sofa snuggled up with my galgo. The most loyal dogs treated like vermin. Thank You Beryl.

Bonjour

The Ebook was released at the beginning of May, but
the print version was not ready until the middle of June. Everyone has
worked very hard to get the book out before Spain handed over the presidency of
the EU at the end of June, so I could write to the Spanish President and the
Presidents of all the Spanish galgo racing and hunting federations and tell them
it was out in the public domaine. The copy of the book you ordered came
through as a print version and was posted on 21st June, 2010 - it is addressed
to you as that is how it came through Paypal, but the address is Western
Australia. Due to the cost of postage in France, the books have been sent
economy rate. The ones to the UK posted on the same date arrived at the
end of last week, so apologies to everyone else, but Im afraid they will take a
little longer to arrive. However I can assure you that all orders received
up to and including 3rd July 2010 have been posted.

What you have read is that the first print run sold
out very quickly, and a second print run has already been completed!
Orders to date from this print run were posted on 4th July.

Im sorry you didnt hear back from Scootbooks,
they are only a new small company and one of their computers was down for a few
days - frustratingly the typesetting one! They try their best. The
only charges they have made for publishing the book are for materials - paper,
ink cartridges (which are quite expensive), binding and postage. The rest
of the proceeds from the sale of the book go into my Galgo Fund. From the
sales of the book, I have already been able to donate to two appeals which I
featured recently on Galgo News.

Please do not worry, the book is winging its way to
Oz!

Hi Tina

I know how very much work you devote to Spains
abandoned dogs, and especially how many abandoned galgos you have rescued and
rehomed after hunting ended this season.

I have to admit to a few goosebumps to read your
lovely comments. I hope everyone else learns a lot from the content of the
book, especially those who do not live in Spain and see the results of the
annual holocaust and try and pick up the pieces.

May you continue to be strong to cope with what
these sick hunters chuck out on your doorstep every January.

We have to keep fighting for the
innocents.

Thanks so much Beryl for your prompt reply and followup and I am so relieved to find the book is on its way - my sister and I will be delighted to read it. She is an avid reader of everything "Galgo" and has followed your work closely and with total admiration, only wishing she could do more for the cause.
Best of best wishes to you Beryl.
Kind regards, Margaret Ann

Bonjour

Let me know when it arrives, as it will give me an
idea of how long the Economy rate takes to get to Oceana.

And thank you for your kind words. Donations
and Sponsor a Dog are great ways to help the galgos, especially now there seem
to be more and more being dumped. Every day, still, I receive tales of
people picking up galgos, the shelters are full to bursting!

We have to do what we can to try and get the
hunting and racing people to regulate themselves properly to stop all
this. Also the regional councils and judges where prosecutions are heard -
trouble is, most of them are hunters and also corrupt!

Beryl, I am so anxious to read your book. I ordered it a while back (maybe a month ago or more?) and haven't yet rec'd it. Paid for it using PayPal. Tried contacting the Scoot Book website but kept getting message that "website link was broken". Any ideas? Thanks from Judy in Colorado, USA.

Bonjour Judy

Im sorry the book is taking so long to reach
people, its the problem with being posted from France - trying to keep postage
costs down, it is taking about 4 weeks to reach the US, depending on which side
you are! Your book was posted on 4th July, so it should be dropping into
your letterbox any day now. One which was posted on 21st June to California only
arrived last week!Ive tried the weblink on Scootbooks and it worked ok,
so maybe there was a temporary glitch when you tried.

Hello Beryl,

I am trying to buy the 'From Heaven to Hell...' in English but when I push on the Pay USA and all over button, it takes me to an area to pay from France and the directions are in French. Where do I go to get an english version of how to order and my personal information to come through to the right company? I am confused. I really need this for a Christmas present! Can you help me please!

Not sure why you are having a problem, as I have
received many orders from the US. Click on the Buy Now button, it should
bring up a page with the amount due, your email address and asks you to login to
your account. Login and the page goes into English. If you still
have a problem,go into your Paypal account,
send the amount including postage $21.49 to my email address band@bbrennan.eu. Then email me
confirmation and your full name and address and I will post a copy off to
you.

Hey Beryl,

Thank you so much for your info above. I've ordered the book by credit card and received a confirmation. Is there anyway you can make sure it comes to me in English, as the person I am giving the book to does not speak Spanish. (Neither do I, sorry!)

Thank you once again...and just so you know, we are getting a galgo and a pondenco arriving in California Jan. 12th, 2012! Our first encounters of the little darlings and we can't wait! We've rescued greyhounds over the years and now we're looking forward to adding Spain's little angels to our pack!

Kindest regards,
Stephani

Bonjour

Thank you for your order, it will be a copy in
English. And great news that you are adopting a galgo and podenco; I
presume these are two being taken over by GRIN with Telma Shaw. You will
have to write and tell me all about them, so we can share the news with my
GN and PP readers. Thank you for caring and supporting these deserving
dogs.

Hi Beryl,

I'm new to your site (I have a couple of rescued podencos myself). I'd like to make a suggestion. I think this book might do very well as a Kindle book. It's very easy to publish and free as well. My other idea would be to look for volunteers for translation, especially if proceeds are going to help the animals.

Just a thought
