Yep, poison - maybe not in this thread, but others.  Never mind.

"Poison"? For god's same, give me a break. People are entitled to an opinion, even when they don't agree with you (or, indeed, me). And, by the way, I haven't read this book either.

The best thing to do then is for everyone to ignore any comment posted by My Login Is Henrietta. The sad individual will soon get bored of talking to nothing.  Any response to their poison clearly gives their sad life a boost... What ever floats your boat I guess...

I'm still looking forward to meeting him/her/it for some ill comments made towards my family earlier this year - still obviously too chicken to come out from behind their screen name.

*soon to be found in off topic comments*

Best of luck with your book Kevin.

The WWI Timeline display in the park is featured in the latest edition of Stockport Heritage Magazine on sale now.

The mag also features 3 pages about Marple Hall that are illustrated with images from the Virtual History Tour plus many other interesting articles too.

Be thankful Looby that you don't understand Henrietta's stance. She doesn't do positivity or congratulatory and she certainly doesn't do community.

She looks sideways at the community that she lives in and she doesn't like what she sees so she takes a swipe at it. She thinks that Marple should actually be an Edwardian, Cheshire village, instead of a small town in Stockport. She won't even understand the community point that you are trying to make. She does criticism, disdain and spite.

I agree with you, if somebody in our community can write a book then we'll support it, most people will, but not her because she's not really in our community. If you cared to look (please don't bother ) you'll see that she's made hundreds of postings, most of them are an attempt to sully something that is in the community. Councillor Kev's book is a typical example. She won't have read the book, so she'll make up some story about the writer which as you quite rightly say is nothing to do with the thread, and it is probably not even true anyway. 

Back to your book, I do know a little about it, In fact I know somebody who is reading it as we speak. I also intend to read it myself but I probably won't be doing that until next week. Anyway I'll come back to you with something constructive at a later date.   

A Man of Insignificance is being officially launched at The Springfield Hotel, tomorrow afternoon. Attendance is by invite only but I'm sure if you happened to wander over there, somebody would sell you a copy, you may even be able to get it signed by the author, that would please your aunt. Oh yes, I agree it is a very interesting cover, very unusual.

Mlih aren't you being slightly bullying here. This seems to be a question to the community for which an answer was provided. No need to attack the op. The board is quiet enough as it is without chasing away new contributors

Duke's right (and I don't often say that) your comments in this thread are negative, unhelpful, unnecessary, inaccurate and contribute nothing to the topic.

If you'd like to berate Cllr Dowling for taking a week to answer your email then why not call him. He may have a perfectly valid reason.

His contact details are in the public domain:

Can we list stuff for sale through this forum or not? I can't see a section for it. Thought it makes more sense to offer some of my stuff to local folk rather than go through the hassle of posting stuff via ebay.

If you have any records, list a taster, I may take them

You know your Aunt's taste better than we do. If it's for your aunt why don't you read it yourself instead of expecting others to do your work for you?

Thanks everybody, that's amazing!

I've got an old Auntie she's a big fan of Councillor Kev. As a Councillor that is not as a writer.

I was thinking of buying it for her as a Christmas present, she'll be delighted. The only thing is, will it be suitable for her?  She likes a good crime thriller, murder-type book, but she She won't want it, if it's full of gratuitous sex and violence.

Has anybody out there read it, does anybody know what it's about ? What type of book is it?

Even worse it's not about the Council, is it?

Hi, does that mean you won't be buying the book then ?  :-)
Certainly not on the basis of a "review" that says the author must be talented because the book has a "very interesting" cover.
