    Thanks mate, sorry if my English voice was a bit rusty. It'll get perfected in due time ;)

    Your voice was fine and your English is great. It was nice to finally hear the voice behind the words on this forum and on Twitter!

    Thank you @Dragonpol, I was worried at first when I saw a preliminary version of the interview!

    Oh, I've been featured on the historical UnivEx site, too: https://universalexports.net/the-world-of-goldeneye/

    No need to worry as you did great! You're getting some good promotion done for the book which is nice to see. :)

    The official release date for The World of GoldenEye has been pulled back to June 1, 2019. The 25th anniversary of the day when talent manager Fred Spector phoned Pierce Brosnan to tell him he was on board Bond.

    However, you can start ordering the book over here ;)

    PS. Thank you @Dragonpol, when I first heard the video I said "oh, my English sucks" :-O

    Great, just ordered a copy there and hope to write up some sort of review too. I wish you every success with this impressive book, @NS_writings!

    Thank you @Dragonpol! BTW, your edition (as well as my own), might have a small inconsistency on the page numbers for the very last chapters (forgot to update the index, I'm fixing it now). Please excuse me. Every page coincides with its number except for the last chapter which is the film's timeline. Anyway, hopefully this is solve since they'll print and ship ours in a few days.

    Gracias @ggl007!

    As a Spanish speaker myself I know that many Bond fans don't understand English, so I tought I had to make a Spanish version as well and with a different cover artwork, to please collectors.

    Spanish translation: A Study on the Movie of James Bond and Its Legacy

    Correct! The accurate translation of the original should be: "Un estudio comprehensivo de la decimoséptima película de James Bond y su legado". But I decided to simplify it on the translation. ;)

    Ooh, after taking two years of Spanish in high school I actually got a fairly long phrase exactly right for once, haha.

    My pleasure! And if you know someone who doesn't do well with English, there's also a Spanish version coming in one month (bit.do/mundogoldeneye). That's also applicable for someone who wants to purchase different editions of a book for the cover artwork ;)

    Damn, perhaps not now; wouldn't let the order go through and now it reads as 'out of print'.

    I'm having a small issue with the BankGothic font which their printers can't read properly. As soon as this is solved the book will be up again. @Creasy47

    What program did you design the cover in? If it's Adobe Illustrator, try creating outlines.
