Life recently has been reduced to a box ticking exercise.
The Cat Tree and other stories draft proofed and final edit – done
Artwork design including logo for Stobor Books – done
Registration for free bar code as a publisher – done
ISBN and bar code created – done
Upload and recheck of all files – done
Proof copy ordered for final production check – done
Lie down in a darkened room – To do.
Well two weeks from now I should have my proof copy before giving the final okay on distribution so I can shift my focus back to writing once more. Or then there’s doing some brand recognition for Stobor Books. That means a number of other boxes to tick. There will be links, there will be other publicity related things. That and the eBook which I have to complete before December 12th.
Then maybe I can set aside some time for a much needed rewriting of the Stars trilogy. I’ve done the rough edit and will try to be ruthless with the next draft. In the meantime I’m going to try and place some copy with some of the science fiction magazines in the United States. That and keep on top of the day job.
No rest for the wicked.
