*I'll tell you what,* I thought,*I've cracked the 100 barrier...I said that when I sold 100 books I would call myself an author. And I have. So...what I will do is, I will set Trucking Hell up with an ISBN and sell it via Amazon and such. Yes! What could be easier?*
Well, slamming a revolving door, for a start.
See, to do the *Published by Lulu* thing, which gets you an ISBN, you have to re-do the entire book...which is fine, as it meant I cold use the very final update and edit, so it is really polished (Thanks Suzi, Random, Kim et al who did the final proofread)
And, having got the files up, the book size (and price) down, and Lulu having given me an ISBN...it crashed. Spectacularly splattering files over seven dimensions, none of which I occupied.
Luckily I had kept back-up files.
Upload. *Crash!* Nooooooooooooo!
It took me five attempts. FIVE! Every time it tried to set a *Shop* price...*Kaboom!*
So...finally...just after midnight, Bowen T Hunter managed to get Trucking Hell on Lulu
Which means that the first ten people to buy it have a remarkable rare pre-okay copy, but it is, I hope, of the same standard as the finished article.
Those who buy it after midnight last night will get the final draft (I hope, barring any massively obvious cock-ups), and for that I thank you all.
Bowen T (now Gaz) Hunter. Author! :) 
 Only way I could do this, of course, was to set *Writer Revenue* to £0. Needs must, however...the book has to get out there...I've put too much of myself in to it to let it fall on its arse!
 At one stage it said *Done* and offered me the chance to download a proof copy. Normally I don't, as I trust Lulu, but this time I did. And boy, am I glad...the opening chapter had every third line reversed, and every single page...every single one, was in a different typeface.
 Special, oh so very special. thanks go to Caroline Smailes, my editor, friend, shoulder to cry on, all round good egg, and owner of this website!
