I suspect Lulu is always a slow burn, it's not the sort of site you browse for the heck of it.

True.

I've publicised the scriptbook on this forum, Britmovie, Roobarb's and The Mausoleum Club and these threads have been read buy a lot of people so it's disappointing that the sales are so poor. Perhaps I was mistaken about how interesting things like this generally are to most fans.

Perhaps people are waiting for the second book, so that they can buy both together and save on Lulu's none-too-cheap postal rates?

That was indeed my original intent until I read an earlier (somewhat alarming) post by Jaz ("I'm not sure the second script book will happen at this rate.").
I have no regrets as the book is great and gives terrific insight into the New Avengers (re-?) writing process but I think Alan might be right.
Still keeping my fingers crossed regarding the second script (which I promise to buy as soon as I read the announcement Wink).

The touble with Lulu is that it isn't like an ordinary publisher that would do all the promotional, advertising etc work to get a title known and "in the bookshops". Is it being sold on Amazon? (E.g. buy about 20 copies off Lulu and sell as an Amazon marketplace seller) - at least that way *perhaps* the book would get recommended to people who bought similar items (e.g. thrillers, TV books).

I had no idea how much Lulu charged for postage.

2.99 for the first book, but 3.99 for two. See what I mean... Smile

Code JEKYLL for 20% off, or HYDE for 25% off, if your order is $300 or more from Lulu - until COB 26/10!

Just a reminder that Philip Broadley never knew anything about this script being rewritten and filmed

I don't suppose one of you lovely people who bought the book might give it a favourable review on Lulu.

The second unmade scriptbook for The New Avengers will happen sometime in the near future.

I'd be glad to leave a review, but I was unsure if I could without a lulu account. Question

Great news about the second scriptbook! Looking forward to it. Very Happy

Yes! That cover looks great.

I really enjoyed reading The Tale of the Double Cross. To me, Charly almost seemed like a 'new' Avengers girl - at times coming across quite different from Purdey.

Were parts of this other unmade TNA script used for an episode, in the way the first script later transformed into Tale of the big why, or is all of this script unique to this book:?: Thanks, Rich.
