Well done getting it written! I could not get mine published, so I so I got it printed myself. No money in it that way, just not enough advertising to sell it. My next two books I am going to publish through the net and see how that goes.
All the best of luck with yours.

Hi Stu. Nothing to do with bread baking accept perhaps in regard to making the fire.
My irst book was "Primitive Fire lighting-Flint and Steel". The second one is on fire-bow or bow-drill fire lighting. This one I will now incorporate into the first book.
There is a survival book but I have not bothered with that one, people want lots of tricky stuff that does not work like striking razor blades on rocks!!! I am not into that. I used to review books and equipment years ago and I was amazed at how many books were copied from other books and were full of rubbish!
The other book I would like to get out is called "The New World Woodsman, 1700-1760: his clothing, arms and equipment". This is basically for Living Historians and re-enactors.
