In 1962, Liverpool folk musician and songwriter Pete McGovern, unleashed on the world a fun, 6 verse folk song celebrating the life, culture and history of the home town he loved dearly, Liverpool - and the song? - In My Liverpool Home. He was not to know it then (although as years went by he sure did), but Liverpool / Merseyside folks were so taken with the song and the idea, and the melody helped too of course, that new verses began to be added. Sometimes this was fellow folk musicians and writers, but just as often, it was ordinary folks who loved a singsong in the pub or in their own parlour. Here, now, 56 years later, the song has mushroomed to 163 verses (and is still growing!), and here they are in the form of a single A5 book on Lulu.com. Link below:
I have just read a newish book published with Createspace, complete with ISBN. However, it has no title page, just a copyright page. I am wondering how that has got through. When we submit our books for distribution, I am sure (well, almost sure), that we're told that a title page is mandatory if the book is to be accepted for wider distribution. Yet here we are, a CS book, with ISBN, fully available on Amazon and all the usual joints, yet devoid of a title page. Is this an example of one rule for 'them', and another for us? Best not ask me the title, nor the author, as it is a friend of my daughter's and neither would take too kindly to me highlighting this, oddity, let's say, if they knew.
