What does it profit a man…

Publishing is not the way to make money, unless you have a block buster of course.

The Lance Grows Rusty is not likely to be that.  I found the manuscript as we moved house.  With a little bit of rewriting, I had a book that the proof readers seemed to enjoy and so I thought, why not publish it as an e book and put the profits back into medical research.

I would love there to be enough funds to send some deserving researcher off to a conference, maybe a summer studentship, a PhD stipend, but to be truthful if it made enough to purchase one pot of restriction enzymes I would be happy.

The manuscript was edited, proof read, converted into kindle format and put up for pre order.  It’s priced at £2.99.  Of that, only £1.70 goes into the donational account held at the University of Edinburgh (where I have already negotiated having complete control over where it goes).  There had to be a better way.

Two meetings with the excellent Kerry in Development and Alumni and we have an answer.  If you go to the just giving page  and donate at least £2.99 then you will be sent the PDF.  This can be opened as an i book and has a linked contents page so works pretty much like an e-book.  This way all of your £2.99 will go into the medical research fund.

if you want an actual book then get in touch because some are in production.

The official launch date is 1st August.

Lets see how much we can make.  Research scientists helping themselves.
