Well I’m pleased to tell you everyone that as from today, the new book is finished. When I say ‘finished’ I am talking about the written text, but there is still work to do regarding the cover, pictures, etc.
I guess you could say the main part is finished; I mean, the actual writing of it. Its been hard work and taken many long hours (often though most of some nights) but all been worth it. I suppose it has helped considerably that I’m such a good writer! and can put down what I want to convey without wasting time over that.
The pictures have all been sorted but have yet to be copied to disc as these will be going onto glossy paper. The bar code is being sorted out and there will be about 270 pages. Then of course there’s flyers to go out to bookshops and impatient people who keep bombarding us with emails about it. That looks set to cost a small fortune in postage but all well worth it as that has been accounted for in the selling price.
And then . . . on to finish the next one which looks like having even more pages. Luckily, I’ve been working on that at the same time so that is about three quarters done. But first things first. First this one!
We were scheduled to go on another ‘ghost trip’ today, but decided to postpone that until next weekend. There will be Patsy, her husband, Gareth, myself and possibly a surprise guest. I’m not saying more than that except she’s a female. And I will be sitting next to her in a nice warm car and keeping her well away from Gareth! I know Patsy’s looking forward to meeting her so I just hope she can make either Saturday or Sunday next weekend. We’ll see.Anyway, this has meant I had a well earned day off today with nothing really pressing to do; which is one reason I’m writing this.
That other talk next week, so I hope it warms up for that. Well they are arranging a taxi for me there and back, so not really so bad. Unfortunately, the new book won’t be finished in time to sell there, but it doesn’t really matter. Plenty of other material!
And so on that note, I shall leave you all for now. Don’t do anything that I wouldn’t do. Which should leave you plenty of scope!
For the moment,
