Sigh! Here I was getting all excited about having Escape to Danger ready for sale as a paperback before Xmas so my friends and neighbours here could purchase them for pressies, but the best laid plans etc.
I will now plan for a book signing for sometime in the new year, all ways supposing I can upload the cover to the printer to their requirements. I made some mistakes at first but went back and corrected them, however it proved impossible. I really wanted to have it printed in Australia, but looks like that won’t happen. I think I am on top of it now and will resubmit it though they have not responded to my last submission.
On a happier note, I did load it onto Amazon for printing without too much trouble and ordered a proof, which has arrived. Thank god I did ask for the proof. I found what to me was a big timeline error, and a number of typos, which I have now fixed. The quality and look of the book was pretty schmick. So, it will be available as a paperback from Amazon books soon.
I have started Book 3, but have put it on hold to work on the above and also do a further edit on ‘Daughter of Anger’ Book 2 of the DNA series to enter into a Allen and Unwin’s Crime novel competition. I need to get a move on cause it closes 26th Feb 2021. Plenty of time you might say, but don’t forget the silly season has started and I am bound to be distracted.
Speaking of which, allow me to get in early and wish you a happy, healthy and safe holiday season, celebrated in which ever way you do with the people you love.
I may get in another post before the end of the year but I make no promises. 2021 is going to be a ripper. Get excited and stay positive. Talk soon, Percy.
