I posted a while back that People's Friend were suspending the issuing of contributor copies, but would send a PDF if requested. Now (with thanks to Linda for forwarding this news) it seems the PDF idea has not worked out.
As you may know we had hoped that we would be able to e-mail a PDF of all of your stories which appear in the magazine. I’m sorry to say that, for a number of technical reasons, this has proved unworkable. I can only apologise for any disappointment this causes.
You will be notified of the issue date prior to publication and if you’re unable to locate a copy of the “Friend” in your local shops, do remember that back issues can be purchased from our Sales Dept. on 0800 318846.
Shame. PF publish about 15 stories a week. Does it really cost that much in money and time to send out 15 contributor copies?
