Recently, I wrote a post on the trials and tribulations of being an author. I concluded by saying the problems were fixed and I’d soon have my aunt’s diary published. It hasn’t turned out that way. Amazon’s checking systems didn’t like the difference between my title inside the book, the book’s metadata, and the title on the book cover. The differences were my mistakes, not their’s but it set me back a week and required me to re-publish the ebook and the paperback in order to make them the same. This I’ve done and the ebook is ‘approved’. I’m now waiting for the paperback to also be approved (hoping I really have everything the same this time:-) and I’ll be ready.
Book 4, and probably the last book in The Modest Proposal Institute series, is making slow, but steady, progress, even though I’m still making changes to the story outline — more ups and downs of the writing life. Writing is murder in the modern world, I can’t imagine what it must have been like when it was all done with paper and ink. I’d have needed all the trees in Canada turned into paper to write one novel. Lucky for the environment I’m writing now and lucky for the trees most people buy ebooks today when so many books are being written and read, And on that note, if you haven’t already, visit my Author Page and buy, buy, buy. This is the Black Friday/Cyber Monday Weekend, after all.
