My optimism last time that I had succeeded in publishing the paperback of The Necklace was short lived. I received an email to say there was something wrong with the cover. Back to tearing my hair out. Very apprehensively I contacted my cover designer who must be fed up with me. He was agreeable to help resolve the problem.
Very warily I made another attempt at publishing and this time it was a success. The paperback of The Necklace is now available.
Wow! What a relief! I’m still on cloud nine but will probably come back to earth with a bang soon. Hard work but I got there in the end.
Publishing is harder than the writing. I can hear you asking why I bother when it’s so complicated. I can tell you it’s very rewarding when it works out. Also I love to write and want to share my imagination with readers.
For those of you who don’t have the time or the love of reading you may be interested in my collection of short stories which I am editing at the moment. Hopefully that will be available in a few months. Short stories are something you can dip in and out of as and when you have the time.
I have started work on my next novel but can’t get into it. I’ve got extensive notes so am not short of ideas. I just can’t seem to get motivated so I’m procrastinating by writing this. Waiting for my writer’s get up and go to come back. If you see it floating around somewhere please send it in this direction. Much appreciated!
