Wow, what a weekend!
After the book launch, the parties!
Oh, and when I looked out of the window to see the streams of bunting all the way along the road, and the swarms of well-wishers gathering outside the house, I was so excited!
Then once I had gone out and signed loads and loads of autographs, I was being chased all over town for interviews by all the big newspapers!
And then I…
Well, okay. That’s not strictly true.
It’s not very true at all.
In fact, it’s not true in even the teeniest tiniest littlest way.
My life does not seem to have altered in the slightest and, actually, I’m glad about that.
Right, now it’s time to get on with the next stage.
I’ve put a link on the image of the book on my sidebar, which goes directly to my book page on Amazon (thanks, Stuart!).
And I’m looking at the best way to create Print on Demand paperback copies of the book, probably by using CreateSpace (lots of recommendations), and hope to have that sorted out in a couple of days. I don’t think it’s too difficult, but my way of dealing with new technology tends to be by shouting at it and slamming doors, so I may take longer than other writers.
But since the release date of the Kindle copy is June 4th, I should have time to arrange for the paperback to be released on the same date.
So, what next?
Actually, it will be great to feel that I can focus on just writing again, and not just constant editing and revision, so it’s back to the long Work in Progress, ‘The Assassin’s Garden’. This has a timeline that stretches from Medieval Persia through Medieval India and the British Raj, through to Edwardian England. It’s already a long novel and nowhere near finished, so I suspect that I might eventually have a trilogy on my hands.
I might even write a short story or two.
Ooh, it’s exciting. I do love this writing lark!
