Happy today, as I got the new set of digital proofs from Martins the Printers in Berwick upon Tweed and they look fine and dandy, so all systems go now, I should be able to pick up the copies within the next fortnight. Carrier was going to cost £100, so instead we will make two or three car journeys to pick up copies from the printers 14 miles away (we only have a smallish car). I have a place to store the books that isn’t an outhouse, as damp does awful things to paper and card. Have spent the morning reading about the publicity that I should have started to engender months ago, but I didn’t want to do anything until I had the actual copies – publication date is now officially June 21st. Shall leave WooCommerce for the meantime, while I concentrate on local outlets, and try setting up the book on Amazon. Any copies sold through either of my websites will be the old bucket and spade method of cheques through the post. I am setting up a separate page for this on both my websites. Signed copies and dedicated copies will be available at no extra cost, and the postage and packing charges will be modest.
This is the website of Moonwuzo Books. The first book to be published will be The Midnight Hare, the story of a boy, two hares, and a night journey. The story is set in the Scottish Borders, where I live, but the story is for everyone.
