Kate and Gerry McCann established Madeleine's Fund: Leaving No Stone Unturned in 2007, to enable them to continue the search for their daughter, who was abducted in Praia da Luz, Portugal on Thursday, 3 May 2007. As there is now no law-enforcement agency in the world actively looking for Madeleine, the fund enables a small team of very committed and experienced people to investigate Madeleine's disappearance. It also runs awareness campaigns in several countries, to ensure the public know that Madeleine is still missing, and to encourage them to remain vigilant. There is no evidence to suggest that Madeleine has been harmed and it is therefore vital to keep looking for her and those who took her. It is for this reason that all royalties earned from the sales of this book will be donated to Madeleine's Fund. The directors of the company are Michael Linnett, Edward Smethurst, Jon Corner, Kate and Gerry McCann and Kate's uncle, Brian Kennedy. Once Madeleine has been found the fund will be used to assist searches for other missing children worldwide.

Gee... I guess the PJ and SY don't count as actively looking for Madeleine unless they are wearing waders hip deep in every pond in Europe and rattling doors everywhere. you would think that reviewing the files and finding new leads to chase - or old ones to close out - would count as "looking" -

Also the link between Madeleine's Fund and "searches" is rather tenuous. Gerry has said people like to contribute so they can help the family. The last guys they paid to search came up with a very problematic efit accompanied by a highly critical report - of McCanns.

Still a bargain for 99 pence. I got mine from ebay as I did not want to put money into the Fund.

After all it is a second-hand bookshop - not all books sold are available in such quantity, or published as recently or... ahem cough ... such prize winning efforts. á

Maybe awesomebooks got carried away and imagined Kate's Book would show "awesome" profits.á

Her 3rd Book was meant to be about her and Gerry and how they coped.It was supposed to be on sale April/May, fortunately the Publisher has shown common sense.

Morning weissnicht....It was reported months ago , near the Anniversary of Madeleine's Birthday when they usually have the Channel 4 McCanns playing happy families. Kate definitely said it was to be about her and Gerry a kind of endgame I assumed. I think it very likely the Publishers pulled the plug because volume 2 only had 29 new pages and sales weren't as good as expected.

Panda, I do also remember the 'new book' press, but can't find it anywhere. What happened to the press/media. Where was it?
The 3rd book is gone, like the faceless eggman......whoooosh!

Publishers are ultimately there to make a profit. Like the Fund, they are not charities. They made too big a loss on Kate's first two bewks, so they're not prepared to bankroll a third one, simple as that.

My guess is weissnicht is the Publisher pulled the plug, the second book was a con.only having 29 new pages !!! This is probably why the McCanns are so anxious to win the Libel case , if they lose the Fund really will run out. á

Yes, sure. I just try to find the press/media reports about the 'book'. No luck. á

Well known fact that authors and publishers 'buy in' shed loads of books when published to push them into the top ten on the shelves.Then they get tens of thousands left over which the second hand book shops buy in for next to nothing,if they can sell them for 0.99p what do you think they pay for them,and how many do you think they've got to make that worthwhile ?
At least gerry can get his lawn mower back in the shed now.

Well, I can't see this little second hand bookshop buying any of them, even if they are only 99p each! So the third book was to be about her and Gerry. I thought that the first two were about them so what could she possibly have to say, apart from, probably how they got their sex life back on track!!!!!!áá

Keela , it will probably be about how she and Gerry could not function , for DAYS, but dragged themselves to the Tennis Court and jogged just for some normality .á
Remember....Kate said it took FIVE DAYS before she could sleep at night.

Lioned, for a Doctor she talks a load of c*** "well we were busy" to explain why she and Gerry did not search for Madeleine must rank as one of the most insensitive replies ever.!!!
