Finally. I pressed the ‘yes please send the book out for general release’. This takes you out from under the wing of Lulu self pub into Amazon and the like. No more revisions: if you do it’s complicated, possibly costs and you lose any reviews that you get on Amazon.
With ‘self pub’ I think there has to be a point of NO MORE FAFFING. I’m sure there will still be the odd typo, and I really hope, no more than that. It’s been edited and proof read by several people, and by myself countless times. At the last check I still found some good ones: He should should . . . etc. But In order to get on with the next book and project I felt a natural point had been reached.
IF it ever got picked up by a publishing house, no doubt there would be more than just a few typos to sort . . . but for the non-pub author struggling along,
it is rewarding to have an actual real paper and glue book in your hands rather than a ever-changing dog-eared manuscript/computer folder.
So, button pressed. On to book three of this trilogy: The Mad Dog Café — written and in need of urgent pruning/editing/proof reading etc etc etc..
