I love the smell of productivity in the morning.
I had a very productive writing day today. Managed to churn out close to 5k words today. Two and a half chapters done. Also managed to get my book (well the first quarter) converted via Scrivener to an ePub file and view it on my iPad. How heartwarming is it when you see your novel in proper book format?!
Now (and way too soon) my mind starts to turn towards cover art, self-publishing and ISBNs. So here’s three questions for the experts out there –
- Who did you use for cover art and were you happy with them
- KDP, Kindle Select, Kindle Unlimited, CreateSpace, other… can anyone explain all this EASILY. The more I read the more confused I get!
- ISBN. Do I need to purchase one if I self-publish? Where? How!?
And now because I’m so kind, I’ll leave you with an excerpt from today’s session;
“Might be I’m jist riding through, lookin’ for some peace an’ quiet. An’ you know what? Your face is disturbin’ my peace and quiet.”
Isom blinked for a good ten seconds in stunned silence then broke into a raucous belly laugh. His riders, seeing him break into laughter, joined him. Neither Grace nor Johnny laughed.
Isom slapped his thigh and said, “Missy! You got a mouth on you! My face is disturbin’ your peace and quiet!” He broke off laughing and leaned toward Grace with a dangerous sneer on his lips. “An’ what are you gunna do about my face when it’s bobbin’ above you as I bugger you bloody?”
“This.” She said. Her S&W danced into her hand and unloaded into Isom’s face. His brains splattered out the back of his head and before his body hit the ground, Grace had fired off three more shots.”
