    I don't run Amazon's sales though I listed the book to be available Internationally. I didn't know some countries were restricted.

    Learn something new every day.

    The best idea I can come up with is contact a friend in a recognized country and have him buy it for you.

    I have no plans to set up any sales myself. l have ordered some copies to give to contributors, family and close friends and that's as far as I want to go in distribution.

    You didn't burden me in the least. It aroused my curiosity and it had me pull up Amazon's shipping lists to learn something.

    And I thank you for that.

    I just punched up Amazon also but didn't go for my name. Instead of going through their catagory lists, just type in Long Beach Naval Shipyard.

    Hmmm.... just like an author, wordy...............

    "Long Beach Naval Shipyard"

    or

    "Landgraff"


    Seems to me that "Landgraff" is much easier and quicker to type.

    But of course I don't plan on buying the book.

    Well, the origins of my name are controversial. Depending upon context, it usually means "Land Baron" but in another setting also means "Ditch Digger".

    But I'll stick to the "Baron" and the coat of arms recorded for it. Also the section of Germany they originated in was considered sort of "on the other side of the tracks". But some famous people came from that area such as Irwin Rommel.

    And you know you won't have to buy the book as you were my biggest contributor. I have the complimentary/contributor books on order but haven't received them yet.
