It is with great joy, and at least one small leap into the air, that we announce the launch of Green Wing Press Pty. Ltd, the hard copy publishing arm of which Pittwater Online News is now a subsidiary.
To commence this 'branch' of our ever expanding passion to create and share permanent records of our stories, we have the very great privilege of announcing the first book we will sell is Jervis Sparks's'The Red Light Of Palm Beach'.
Bridget and Jervis are doing well in Queensland and we know a lot here miss them. We will bring you more news soon... Jervis has kindly consented to allowing us to run a Profile on him in October and there is a lot to talk of there !
Copies may be purchased for a minuscule $25.00 by contacting us at email@example.com and providing your details. Please put 'Red Light of Palm Beach' in your subject heading and provide details of a delivery or postage address. Once payment is confirmed you will own your own copy of this great book. You can also post a cheque/money order to the office; 724 Barrenjoey Road, Avalon, 2017, if this works better for you.
UPDATE: We have placed some copies of The Red Light Of Palm Beach at Barrenjoey Boating Services, at The Boat House, Palm Beach where you can buy them after a yummy breakfast or lunch.
