Frustrations of Self-Publishing

I was trying to publish The Necklace in paperback having already published on kindle and it wasn’t going to plan. I’d resolve one error only for other errors to follow. Grr!!!
I had assumed it would be easier this time round having already published Lily of the Valley, but no, that was quite clearly stupid of me.
I can tell you as I write this that I finally succeeded, no, not in destroying my laptop or pulling my hair out, but publishing the paperback. As you can imagine I am on cloud nine right now. Don’t worry, I’ll return to planet earth to do more editing on my next book and start writing another one. Ideas are already floating round in my head.
I’ve got into the habit of carrying a notebook and pen around with me always on the lookout for new ideas. They come from anywhere such as overheard conversations and small incidents.
Currently, I have another book started, one book of several hundred words and another idea but so far not started.
With all these ideas buzzing around it’s hard to keep up with myself, so how I expect readers to I don’t know.
I was out this afternoon when the title for a new book came to me after seeing a road sign! I think it gave me the perfect title so I was very happy. Made a change from the frustration of this week!
