If I look pleased it’s because I am; and it’s not just because James Bond is standing behind me!
My first novella is now in print; real print, on real paper!
Of course it has been an eBook for a couple of weeks but there is something about holding an actual book in your hands that puts a smile on your face.
I have sold a copy as well….. so that’s good. One of my friends likes ‘real books’ and he waited until they arrived, and bought one.
The package arrived a couple of days ago and I was having a particularly bad day so I waited until the next day before I opened it.
I didn’t want to waste the experience.
There is a law that says that when an author opens their book for the first time, to any random page, they will find a typo. It’s true….. but only a misplaced comma…… not the end of the world.
I hope you will forgive me for ‘blowing my own horn’, but this is how it goes when you are on your own in the publishing business. I would much rather someone else would blow the horn for me, but I’m learning how to do it myself.
As you have probably worked out, the book has its own blog page and I add a new short ‘Sam and Scarlett’ story each week.
Feel free to wander over there and check it out.
If you haven’t purchased my book yet then please consider purchasing it as the proceeds go towards paying the publishing costs and if there is any left over it will help with the costs of my new book.
If the genre of the book does not interest you but you would like to support me with a small donation, then you can hit the PayPal button in the top right hand corner of the page and leave me a tip.
No matter how small, all help is appreciated.
LATE BREAKING NEWS!
Due to popular demand [well, a couple of people asked] I have set up a sales site with the printer for those who like paper books. The link seems to work well and the process is relatively painless. So………. knock yourself out!
