Ahoy, mateys, welcome aboard!
As the elected Capt'n of the Failboat [Minion Emma and First-mate Will wanted to be able to mutiny against somone otherewise, what's the point o being a crew?] I would like to thank all you haaard workin' drawin' folk for all your effort in helping us make Birdsong. [Incidently, for anyone who hasn't handed in by this Friday, a length of bog oak, a plank and a spiggot await yee.- Since this is going to be Will, none of you have anything to worry about.] We're slowly getting the pages set and ready and soon to be getting the graphic design and covers sorted [prods Will] and will hopefully be getting close to getting the bloody thing published before the end of the con season [brandishes spiggot and wooden mallet at Will.]
Thankee all koindly!
Lou, Capt'n o the FAILBOAT, shiver me timbers, ahar.

I could run mine straight in from the back. [Although i'd pref if i could stick in a blank separation page if pos [we can probs ask about this as it would be put in with the cover.]
so that the ginnel title is on the double page spread.
