It Never Ends

Hello Good People

Just to update you.

We (my publisher and I), are in the process of putting together a double-sided flyleaf to mail out. On one side, a précis of the book – with the emphasis very much on selling the book. On the other side, a piece explaining the factual situation as to how things stand regarding the advanced ways, means and also the “achievements” to date within the fields of medical and surgical techniques. Also, what might be in the pipeline. In so doing, putting the storyline of the book into a context. It’s all go!

Onwards and Upwards!

Bleedin’ ‘ell …….

…… there’s money in books!

Hello Good People.

Took myself off to the London Book Fair at Olympia today. I had to pay £50 to get in. Thank God I had my credit card with me! My publisher had forgotten to let me know in advance, get me a discount, or even a free pass. Now, if I were JK Rowling or John le Carre, no prob. Mind you, the boss didn’t know I was going to go. Better luck for me next year!

It seems the Fair has been doing a roaring business since Monday (closing today). Still, I got a few of my publisher’s catalogue, and my book is featured in it, and a small poster of the book cover was on the stand ‘wall’. I also got to meet the boss of the publishing house and Ellie, who’s handling the marketing of the book. So, all in all, a good visit.

More immediate, I’m not happy with my WORD 10 system, as seems to be the case for many who’ve gone on to it. I’m hoping Huwie, my I.T. saviour, will be able to put me back on the old system. Bring back the quill and inkpot I say!

Right, that’s it. More will follow.

Cheers,

Ready …. Steady ….. !

Hello Good People

Still slugging away trying to get my book up and running. My publisher is at the London Book Fair at Olympia next week, so I’ll be there on Thursday. In for a penny, in for a ……

A lovely young lady at the publishing house will be linking me into the Internet social media scene in the next few weeks. That should be a laugh. You know, me and I.T.!

Stay tuned.

Cheers,
