Well, I’ve finally completed the formatting process through Createspace!!
No, I haven’t…
Actually, I had to add yet another blank page to make sure the page numbers were on the correct side of the page and now have to go through the revision process all over again because nothing is ever simple.
Once that’s done though, I’ll be able to order my proof to make sure it looks good as a paperback and then I might actually be able to breathe easy for a while. Until I have to format the second book that is!
The updated and reformatted version of the Kindle edition is no under review, so that should be up and running in the next day or so. The plan is to put the Kindle on for free for a few days. This is down to having to reformat and if anyone purchased the Kindle edition then they can download the updated version for free.
Once the proof arrives and it looks good enough to be out there in the big, wide world, I’ll order a few copies and there will be a competition for two free, signed copies. The rest will be sold directly from me as I’ve had a few requests to provide that service.
Right now, research is top of the agenda and I’m studying Arms and Armour and a few others things along the way. This is all for the next book: Spirit Gods. I’m hoping *fingers crossed* I’ll be able to complete this book a little faster and publish before the end of the year. That’s what I want to do. Life doesn’t always conform to my plans, so I’m just taking it one day at a time. Another book, based on my Flash Fiction characters, Bob and Frank is also lodged in the pipeline. Again, I want to publish this in 2018. I’m not sure if it will be a novella or full-length novel just yet. It’s still in the rough planning stages.
I’ve got a lot of stuff piled on my plate. Not to mention, the design and building of my outdoor office! I’m excited about the prospect of having my own space to create.
Right now, I’m happy and content with how the writing and books are going. Of course, I’d like to be able to write and format faster, but I’ve come to accept somedays it’s just not possible for me to type up 4,000 words. Not anymore. I’ll get there. Eventually.
Sending good writing vibes to all those writers and authors out there!!
Have a great day! 🙂
