Out in the wild
Finally got my *final proof* copy today...the book is smaller than the pre-proof copy I got yesterday, but it is nice and shiny, and real, and in the back are the acknowledgements, and it is *mine* and I did it, and I clicked on *accept* on the Lulu website. And two things happened. Firstly it is ging to be available in Amazon.com within 6 weeks, with real, physical copies being made available to retailers (so go ask your local book stall for a copy! get them to stock it!) and the other, rather annoying thing that happened is that the price promptly went up to £11.50.

£11.50? This is not what I wanted! Apparently though, the fact that retailers and wholesalers have to buy it at a discount to get their money means the price has to be set there for Lulu to make anything. Lucky them. I;m not making a penny out of it! Imagine the price if I had been!

So...I am sorry, if you think that eleven and a half quid for an amateur book is too much, well, frankly I don't blame you...

I haven't read it yet, having been too unwell and consequently addle-headed to appreciate it today, but I will let you know what I think of it as soon as I have. :-)

Shiny! ISBN!

I had to explain to my deskmate what an ISBN is today. I don't think she reads...
