Hi folks, we thought it was about time we gave you an update on Jim’s progress as it has been a while.
We have great news for you as things are really taking off with Jim
Spencer is just finishing the last of the illustrations and I’m putting all the last pieces of the book together then it can have a final edit before being printed.
We estimate that Jim will be available by the end of Autumn.
But we wondered if anyone would like to get involved with the book?
We are looking for some high quality Jet Provost photos to include in Jim’s book. If you have any photos that you have taken yourself of Jet Provosts and would like to see them included, please email them to us at jimthejetprovost@gmail.com before June 30th which is the last date for us to accept your photos.
THE PHOTOS MUST HAVE BEEN TAKEN BY YOURSELF (not copyrighted), AND THEY SHOULD BE ROYALTY FREE ( you are happy for us to use them for free)
Once we have received all the photos we shall chose our favorite pictures and then we will post them on Jim’s Facebook page for Jim’s followers to have a vote and chose the final pictures.
If your photos are chosen we will acknowledge you in the book and Jim will send you a few Jim goodies as a thank you.
So folks, get scanning through those photos and see what you’ve got.
Remember, final date for photos is June 30th 2015
Please spread the word 🙂
