Gearing Up

Friday, October 31st, 2014

It is Halloween tonight and I am in the middle of an All Hallows Read and Creativi Tea I have organised, the plan is that at midnight I will begin the NaNoWriMo journey once more – this is a writing challenge I do every year. The idea is to write 50, 000 words in a […]

It’s Christmas Time

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

Well ok not quiet yet but with two weddings to attend and the presents only half knitted I need to think Christmassy. Also I wanted to try and get all the hard graft for The Little Book of Festive Poetry sorted. I was going to leave the audio version until next year but I’ve built […]

A Learning Experience

Monday, November 26th, 2012

So yesterday I did the village craft fayre all profits were for charity and yet it was the worst one I have ever done. It was slow – all of them are being slow at the moment but something else was going on, people were still buying the odd bit from the other stalls. Now […]

Things Left To Do for Festive Poetry

Saturday, November 24th, 2012

I have the PDF, I have the printed physical article, but I still need to do a lot of stuff for this book. For a start I need to record a little trailer thing for it like I did for The Spoogy Book, I also want to record the poems for audio book but there […]

20p a Sheet

Friday, November 23rd, 2012

Ok so like last year I am printing out Little Books of Festive as I just did not have the capital to get them printed, especially as I am not getting the money from the sales so I didn’t want to pay out a lot of money when the idea is to raise money for […]

Advice From Other Authors

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

I dislike advice as such from other writers – I believe that each artists has their own path to tread. But by advice in this context I mean ‘You have to do it this way, you are doing it wrong, that is never going to work’. This may have been true for them, may even […]

More e-book stuff

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

I have been researching more and more on this at the moment I am thinking Amazons one looks good but then it also feels slightly traitorous to the idea of Indie Publishing. Also there is an issue over weather I do my own ISBN’s or just get theirs, do I do marketing packages. I’m still […]

ebook headache

Sunday, November 4th, 2012

So I thought I would use something like Lulu or blurb to to a monitised version of the The Little Book of Spoogy Poetry rather than having to set up my own webpage and once again face the termoil of trying to get a paypal button and what have you, working on my site. However […]

Ideas, the Web, Copy Write and Piracy

Saturday, November 3rd, 2012

Yesterday I posted my list of ideas on here, as I have done every other year, and then I posted the link on the PiBoIdMo facebook page. I got likes and then I got comments from people who are rightly warning me not to put my ideas on the web incase they get stolen or, […]

Another Year Over!

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

Well another years over and what a lot I have done though most of it will not bare fruit for a year or two! We got the keys to our new house the day before the Christmas holidays so haven’t even started moving yet! This means there are a few more Little Books of Poetry […]
