Announcing a new service for Society members



As a means of creating greater collegiality among members of the Society, the Publishing Committee, in conjunction with Halstead Press, has created a mechanism for all members to be made aware of some of the interesting, published works of your Society colleagues on a regular basis. Conversely, this is also an opportunity for members to make their work known to other members they may not know.

Having briefly explored some of what members have written it is wonderful to see the range and extent of the subject matter covered. And it’s not all non-fiction. Many of our members contribute to other creative genres.  

Works in the catalogue are offered at prices that are discounted from the recommended retail price. The Society obtains a small percentage benefit from all purchases.

The Society will trial this initiative for 12 months to determine the extent of the tangible and intangible benefits members might obtain. As part of the project, the Society will compile a bibliography of members’ books which will be available from the Halstead Press website.

Here’s how it works:

  • Members can use the form provided to supply information about their books, so they can be entered in the bibliography and considered for the catalogue. Note that we reserve the right not to include books offered by members.
  • The Society will supply members from time to time with a descriptive catalogue of selected books available to buy at members' prices, below recommended retail prices.
  • Members can select books they wish to purchase from the catalogue and order them direct from Halstead Press.
  • Books ordered from the catalogue are posted to the postal address supplied by the member.
  • Please refer to the advance sample catalogue to see how books will be described and how to order them.
  • The scheme operates as an OPT-OUT arrangement. Please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.if you do not wish to receive any material directly from Halstead Press relating to this scheme.

 

I hope that you find that this new member service is beneficial.
