Doodle Mayhem... out on kindle soon

Finally... my edits to the formatting are complete, and I've zapped Doodle Mayhem off into cyberspace - it should appear on kindle in the next few days.

My main problems were related to the illustrations, I think the characters just got over excited with all the extra space and ran amok all over the text. I also reduced some of them in size so that the text fitted around them better.

Formatting on kindle

I've progressed a little, I think, towards publishing on Kindle... I now have it in a zip file in kindle format, which apparently I can format at my leisure... when I figure out how to do that.

Not a great shock to discover that uploading a book onto kindle isn't as easy as it looks! Or not when there are pictures formatted into the text anyway... My little doodle figures went gallivanting around the screen when I tried to upload as a PDF, they fared a little better as a word document, but appear to be too big for the viewing screen. I'm sure I'll crack it in the end, but for now I'm calling it a day...

ebook coming soon

Why does everything always take longer than I expect? Or maybe someone hit the fast forward button this week, anyway it's Friday and the end of the week has arrived before the end of the work - but the good news is that Doodle Mayhem should be out as an ebook next week :)

Doodle Mayhem

I've been working hard towards republishing Doodle Mayhem in 2nd edition under my own imprint Lost in a Book, then all my books will have come home! I've added a couple of pictures and digitally remastered others. I'm hoping to publish as an ebook by the end of the week... then it will be back in print by the end of next month.

This is the book where it all began - the first in the doodle series:
A children’s fantasy where Eric’s doodles come to life.

Eric would rather doodle than write a story, but when the words start to disappear off the page in front of him, and his doodle starts talking to him, he thinks he must be dreaming.

Eric’s doodle has come to life, and he’s getting bored; he jumps into Miranda’s story, where he gets attacked by a rubber, then he’s blown off his feet when Natasha sneezes. Miss Roper is getting angrier by the second. How will Eric ever finish his story, when his doodle just wants to have fun, and create havoc?
