Thought of the day

Why is it that when the book I'm working on hits a snag, it always seems that the next big project (the one whose characters are still forming in my head), seems like an easier task to do?

Maybe it's that ideas at an early stage have the freedom to run riot, but somewhere along the way they need to be organised into a book. And they need to be fed into a computer, and formatted into a file, before they can be printed into a book...

Monster on amazon...

The new monster book is now registered on amazon for pre-ordering. It's jacket image hasn't caught up with it yet though so I hope it doesn't catch a chill!

I sold a few books at a craft fair yesterday, but it was a very quiet event. I have some bigger events planned for May and June, as well as a re-launch for the 2nd edition Monster book.

The Monster Under The Bed 2nd edition

It's an exciting moment to get the proof copy of a new book, and finally see all the hard work come together in book form. And here is the new cover - not much has changed, the reason for the second edition was to bring my first book under my own publishing name: Lost in a Book and have future copies printed locally. This gives me control over the quality of the paper and card used to produce my book, and I'm delighted with the result.

Most of the work is done now, I just need to check over the proof, as this is the last chance to have any errors changed before I place my order for a print run.
