CUSTOMS DUTY VAT AND MAIL 'EXPENSE' CHARGES
The information below will change when the UK finally leaves the EU
on 31 January 2021
If you are living in the UK and buy items from a non EU country, ie on Ebay, from Amazon etc.. you may be liable for Import VAT and or Customs duty payable to HM Customs, via the Post Office or other carrier.
The costs of the postage and any insurance are included along with the value of the goods when HM Customs calculate what is payable.
This increases the tax and vat bills by quite a lot if goods have come from a distance.
On top of VAT and duty the carrier will add a charge for handling your payment to HMC
This is approx £12
So it is advisable to work out exactly what you need to add to the value of the goods & postage before you order.
It is a sad state of affairs these charges act as a major deterrent in buying from the USA for instance, and until the UK leaves the EU things will not improve.
Because the charges can be complicated please check with customs for more current information on importing from outside EU.
The above information is a guide only-the olnfc takes no responsibility for changes that may take place or any transactions based on this information.

There is nothing to stop you publishing yourself online, but be warned
in providing a work to the general public, the publisher takes responsibility for the publication. For example, publishers may face charges of defamation, if they produce and distribute libelous material to the public, even if the libel was written by another person, therefore we
recommend you think very carefully before ‘net publishing if the article relates to any living people, or involves someone else’s copyrighted property.
For further advice on how to get work accepted for television and the movies
contact The Writers Guild of America.
RANDOM HOUSE GIVE THIS ADVICE ABOUT BOOK PUBLISHING :
If you would like to have your work or manuscript considered for publication by a major book publisher, we recommend that you work with an established literary agent. Each agency has manuscript submission guidelines. You may wish to refer to The Literary Marketplace (the LMP), a reference guide that contains a listing of literary agencies. It can be found in most libraries. Another excellent source is The Writer's Market, which you should be able to find in a local bookstore or library. You can also visit their Web site at

BUYING A SIGNED PICTURE
Because Leonard has died the demand for purchasing pre-owned photographs etc. has increased greatly as well as the purchase prices.
There are many 'signed' photographs on sale through various outlets.
Many are fake,so be aware,unless a star actually signs in front of you there is no sure way of knowing it's genuine.
Autopens, preprints, secretarial,stamps, and forgeries are common in all fandoms.
Only buy from a dealer who belongs to a recognized professional assoc'.
Do not trust a Certificate of Authenticity
if the seller is dealing with fakes,they wont mind printing up a few COA's to go along with them.
Any Autographed pictures of Leonard sold on these webpages were obtained from Leonard himself unless we state otherwise
Have you brought a autographed picture and not sure it's genuine?
