Hey Alexa, is it self publication or mental breakdown?

Write a book they said, do your own cover they said, fill your shoes with drawing pins and go for a long jog they said.

F – U – C – K!!!!

I’ve never known so much contradiction ever on the good ole tinternet. It kind of reminds me of when the Ghostbusters go see the Mayor:

Okay so maybe I’m exaggerating a teensy weensy bit but I confess to struggling with getting this book prepared and writing this blog for you wonderful people at the same time. It’s like I’ve said before, I’m a Bloke and I’m shit at multi-tasking.

So I’m going to ask for you patience and kindness in allowing me to complete this bloody book of mine for it to be published on the 1st March.


Once done I can get back to what I’m better at and lay down some funky tracks (I eh; mean poetry).

I’ll say one thing though, it ain’t arf a steep learning curve. I think I’ll have enough material for a whole series of posts after this. Maybe I’ll entitlement them:

“How Not to Self Publish a Book the Mush Way”

By the way, like the video. It’s from those great entertainers over on YouTube. See I am trying to make this blog a little more interesting for 2020.

Okay, you wonderful people, I’m outta here for a short while. I only hope that it will all be worth it. See you all on the flip side.

    It gets easier the more you do it, John! πŸ˜‰ But if you have any questions, email me. Not that I’m a pro or anything, but having self-published twice, I might be able to help. πŸ™‚
