All the TV court room dramas like to talk about the burden of proof of someone’s guilt or innocence being on the prosecution. But when you’re a writer the burden is in the proof itself.
Since I decided to go separate ways from Night Publishing to put my books out as paperbacks through Lulu.com.
In the space of a few short weeks I have learnt to create a passable PDF file and to prepare the book to certain specifications. I have had to learn how to do the pagination to the contents match the page numbers in the MS itself.
I am not the most patient of people and I am told I get this trait from my maternal grandmother.
When I was a child I always dreamt of one day holding a book in my hands that I had actually written but just because I have now experienced this does not mean the sensation will lessen with each proof I touch.
I was up all night last night. Not because I’m ill or insomniac because I’m not but I was on a high. I have finally received excellent proof copies of The Lynchcliffe Cuckoo Volume 1: Mise en Scène and Eye of the Storm: Lewis Franklin’s Story to approve for distribution. When the books hit Amazon it will all have been worth the effort as I will have proved to myself and the online communities to which I belong that I don’t need help. I managed to publish 8 books on Kindle without help after all.
I am now working on getting the rest of the Lynchcliffe Cuckoo trilogy ready for paperback publication and it is just so exciting.
In addition to that I have one more prequel – Divided Loyalties: Lady Lynchcliffe’s Story – to prepare for Lulu.com and also one to finish writing. I have been really lazy when it comes to writing lately as I have been too busy fretting. One day I WILL finish Prescription for Romance: Hamish George’s Story.
The short story editions can wait for now as they require a more detailed knowledge of the series and as yet the non Kindle owning public have been unable to access them. My 92 year old Grandmother (the one I get my impatience from) is currently reading The Lynchcliffe Cuckoo Volume 1: Mise en Scène. I did warn her about the Adult content.
