2014 JANUARY (27th Janaury)
AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
Around the middle of next month we hope to provide the date for the release of a book. By late February, some original artwork of John's will be on sale here and elsewhere. By March, this website will hopefully have a new look!
Also, in case you didn't know, John is on Twitter and Facebook if you want to add him to your own accounts there.
John's blog is to be revived. His work has been such that it has been neglected for quite a while but the weekly blog posts are to return soon.
I've been pestering John to try Kickstarter or similar for upcoming animations projects. He isn't keen due to lack of knowledge of such sites. If anyone can provide any details of their personal experience of using them, it might change his mind. I've suggested that funders be given original artwork from the animation and a copy of the final film. Constructive views on my idea are welcome.
Best Wishes,
Beatrice Thomas.

SEASON'S GREETINGS TO ALL.
Keep your fingers crossed because it may be the case that we can resume publishing books next February beginning with the Merrick book (we hope). Although it was time consuming, we were able to win against those committing copyright piracy. There's still a few small fish to deal with but that's all in hand. It's been an educating experience.
In the new year, more art prints will become available from more than one of the projects from the past number of years.
Also, a small number of John Helvin's oil paintings - the real thing and not canvas prints - will become available for sale at reduced prices. They are not part of any project and it was decided to sell them rather than recycle the canvas. John tends to destroy any artwork done that's not part of a project. He was, for once, convinced to do otherwise.
The updating of this site had been delayed due to my own commitments on other web projects. John has been very understanding about this, bless him, and I intend to catch up on the planned changes very soon.
Merry Christmas to you all!
Beatrice.    


2013 OCTOBER NEWS
(12th October)
Although it  took a while, the Google Books entry for our edition of the Thomas Hill book was corrected (and yet still has few minor errors not worth bothering with).
There have been some further attempts at exploiting our publication. These are in the form of people advertising that they stock the book and, unknown to the customer, are charging 50 to 80 extra to the genuine retail price of the book of 10.
These people do not stock the book at all; what they do if they get an order is buy the book for 10 and rip off their customers for an extra 50 to 80.
These people have, as expected, not replied to any correspondence. Since their contact details are known, any attempt on their part to buy a copy of the book from us will be refused. Hopefully, they will not be able to con any of their customers.
This is not unique in regard to our Thomas Hill book. The same people have a large stocklist of books of other publishers for which they do they same thing. The internet sites on which they do business have been informed of this, by us and other publishers. While they are slow to anything about such people, they do nevertheless get around to doing something - especially when enough publishers and book distributors complain to them.

Changes to our website.
Over the next month there will be work done on our website.
Minor changes are being made and it shouldn't interrupt anyone's viewing of our site.   

2013 JULY NEWS

2013 JUNE NEWS
(28th June)
TOMMY COOPER PRINTS NEARLY ALL GONE!
There are not many copies left of the Tommy Cooper Limited Edition Prints. Those available for sale can be found at this page.

PIRATES AGAIN?
We have received a claim today that John Helvin's book may have been pirated again. This is being checked. Allegedly, those concerned are not simply printing the book "as is", they have  changed the publishers name to their own.  They are supposedly using the name BPR Publishers. An initial check has revealed, so far, that there was only one 'BPR Publishers' and they ceased trading in 2002 (the company was liquidated). Also, the Google Books entry has changed the name of the publisher from John Helvin to BPR Publishers. A possibility is that copyright pirates are using the name to hide their real identity. They also claim to be the publisher of a number of other books; whether they are or not is being checked. If those are also fraudulent then the correct publishers will be informed and invited to join any prosecution that may take place.
