Hey there Guys and Gals, apologies for my tardiness this week but I’ve been a bit busy and I’m rubbish at multi-tasking. I’m a bloke what can I say.
The thing is whoever said this self publishing malarkey is easy (the whole Internet) was telling a load or porky’s. The writing part in comparison is an absolute doddle. It’s all the other stuff that goes with it that I’m finding to be beyond my mental capacity.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not stupid by any stretch of the imagination; unless of course I’m in the same room as my kids, but this is really pushing the boundaries of my technical prowess. Not to mention the copyright this, tax that and self employed the other; Jeez!
And can someone please tell my what an ISBN is, I’ve been told I need one and I thought it was a nuclear missile. I jest… I do really!
‘How far have you got JC’, I here you ask. Well I’ve been struggling to find an illustrator that fits in with my very tight budget. I don’t want to spend lots as this is my first book and the return is probably gonna be extremely low to fuck all. I get that, it’s not an issue. At the same time though I do want a cover that might attract someone to buy the book.
So I’ve taken it upon myself to give it a try and thanks to good ole Pixabay.com I’ve made a few samples. I got to say, less is sometimes more and as someone who likes to blow his own trumpet when he’s in a room all on his lonesome, I quite like them.
What do you think my friends; voting is now open…
