24hrs only!

Standard

As my book, Above The Limit, will be available on smashwords from 1st August I have had to un-enroll from the KDP program on Amazon. As a result I am using up the last of my free promotional days today. So for the last time get your copy of Above The Limit FREE from Amazon today!

Reviews much appreciated on both Amazon and Goodreads. Thanks 🙂

Steep learning curve

Standard

This week I read the Smashwords formatting guide, and boy what an eye opener that was! Thank you very much Smashwords! I never realised that my book was so badly formatted previously. There are so many more layers than I thought possible! I have developed a deeper understanding of Word and the havoc it can reek without my knowledge. With  this in mind I spent hours (while nursing my oldest through a nasty bout of chicken pox) working on and improving Above The Limit. Now I hope that my work will come across in a much neater and more professional way. All being equal Above The Limit will be available through smashwords on 1st August. If you really can’t wait until then 😉 there is a free giveaway of the Kindle edition on Amazon this weekend to celebrate my new knowledge! Enjoy.

Exploring

Standard

Tonight the world of Smashwords was introduced to me…I haven’t mastered Amazon yet! But, regardless, I am going to spend the next few days (while I am house bound with chicken poxy children) exploring this new world and see if it opens up any new doors for me. My marketing skills are still hiding somewhere just beyond my reach and I am failing miserably in that department. Any help I can get is much appreciated. Everyday is another step in my learning journey as I aim to master the world of publishing and make a success of myself.

Excited

Standard

Another 2000 words and the baby that was born after 35000 words is now in dire trouble…will he survive? Who knows? Not even me as I haven’t got that far yet! Gosh writing this book is exciting! It’s taking on a life of it’s own. Don’t Rock The Boat…Due for release Dec 2013! Watch this space…

 

Oh and opinions are wanted on the two possible front covers the moment although I’m sure it will change a dozen times before publication!Image
