Onward and upward - I have decided to produce my own local history magazine. This will be a 16 page + 4 outer cover pages in A4 publication. I am hoping to have four issues per year. I will not have the distribution network that a newspaper has however, a small number of outlets have already been established where it will be avail;able for purchase. I am mainly going to make the publication available as a download via my website www.chrishelme-brighouse.org.uk where copies will be available as four issues per year or in singles and payment can be via PayPal. I will also have copies which can be paid for and will then be posted to the purchaser.
The printer is organised, the ISSN number is ready and I am working on it now. The aim is to have it ready all being for the first issue to be available in June.
My new publication will have lots of images and stories not previously seen in any of the 1664 issues of the Echo I wrote for. I will be pleased to hear from anyone with a story or photograph they would like to share with the readers.
How much will the new magazine cost ? - the price is not yet finalised but to use a local well known phrase 'it will not cost an arm and a leg'.
Further up dates will appear on my website.
