My paperback arrived.

It's amazing just how a fist-full of bucks can make things happen. After just four days my new Kongomato paperback has arrived.  I'm not overly happy with the dimensions but CreateSpace simply refused to let me print it at 9" * 6". 

   Maybe it's just me. The numbers on the opening pages weren't there when I uploaded it, but at least the new pagination beginning again at page three were correct.

   Perhaps if the story grabs people they won't notice the numbers thing, and if sales improve I can always upload another copy with the numbers removed yet again - for the third time.

   But it's back to Hoodies Three. I've just invented a new weapon. I can't wait to slip it in. My lads will have a lot of fun with this one.


   Check out this book sale from Joleene Naylor. Not to be missed.

    1. It does, but after so much work getting it correct it's tinged with just as much relief. They don't make it easy.

  4. Excellent it's on my must-read list. Don't forget to let us know when the pb is available on Amazon - or will you be selling signed copies to your adoring public??

    1. Paperback should be on Amazon US and UK within a few days. Unfortunately, I had to price it higher than I wanted just for this to happen. It was a must, though because I've never sold a single copy through CreateSpace.
