Well, it's been a long time coming but we are very pleased to announce that the book is finally on sale!

Along with full time jobs, running 4 websites, supporting people affected by brain tumours around the world, fundraising and fitting in a little photography, Sarah (' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) .

' talj) have been working very hard to put the book together over the last few months. When there are so many people involved, not just DPCers, and you are relying on others things like this take time!

I'd like to thank them both for the time and effort they have put in to making 'With Hope in Our Hearts' such a beautiful collection of photographs and inspirational words. Don't take my word for it, by visiting the link below you can view the images and (if your eyesight is better than mine) read the text as well!

Thanks to a suggestion by Shez (' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' sherpet), we chose 'With Hope in Our Hearts' as the title for the book Shez, we have sent you a PM about the years DPC subscription you have won :-)

I would also like to say another thank you to all the participants and to Karen (' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' krnodil) for helping us to chase up images and release forms :-)

'With Hope in Our Hearts' can be purchased here

We have tried our best to keep the costs as low as possible whilst still including a donation to BT Buddies. Because of this we were unable to include all the images submitted but hope that you all understand.

Sadly if you order today delivery by 24th is not guaranteed but am sure waiting for a few days past Christmas will be well worth it.

If you would like to help spread the word by sending a press release about the book to press in your local area please email natalya@btbuddies.org.uk and she can forward the full press release to you. And, if you can think of any way to help 'spread the word' then please do.

When I click Here to purchase the book it takes me to this same post in another screen. Is your link broken? When I copy and paste that URL it tells me the page does not exist.

The link for purchasing, in the original post, leads back to this thread...

R.

And oh, yeah, great job! I hope it garners bundles for the cause. Rose would be proud. I'm only sorry my attempts to get my contribution in kept falling through :-(

That's weird......I used the link last night and ordered mine.

Went to Blurb, got into my account, surfed around Blurb, searched using various search parameters, but cannot find it.

My order is in place, but I can't find any way back to the book order page......8>(

Same here. My order shows "processing" but there is no trace of the book. Let's hope it's sold out!! :) The link is clearly broken due to the book not being listed due an unknown reason. That also explains why the link in this thread sends us back to DPC. Hopefully Blurb will get the book back online shortly.

I will update here in 2 minutes, sorry folks a few technical errors...watch this space
12/11/2009 03:02:36 PM · #20
I had a look at the book online earlier this day. Whow! Congrats with creating such a wonderful thing.

And Andi will update the OP if neccessary later.

Apologies to anyone that has contacted me today but I am unable to get to my mail at the moment, please PM if you need to otherwise I will read your mails next week and get back to you as soon as I can.

Incredible work guys, congrats!
12/11/2009 04:02:27 PM · #23
Ooops, have updated the url in the original post folks (was just my way of checking up on you all).
12/11/2009 05:54:47 PM · #24
Very cool - excellent work, all! Love the cause, the sentiments, the images - really beautiful.

Maybe I'm stoopid... but I can't see how to buy it. Can someone help?

Thanks!
