Wow, I got my parcel today and the proof book of my printed Lulu version is here. I am super happy to hold it in my hand, it is really a dream come true.
This is the back side of it:
I’ve been busy correcting my ebook in the last days. Finally I’m done with the third edition of the Kindle ebook version! It will be available within 72 hours. I extracted some annoying mispellings and a few confusing adjectives: I often utilized synomyms, and sometimes not quite correctly.
Oh, and I am waiting for the notice that the ebook passes a Quality Assurance Review. When this goes finely, it will appear at Lulu as well! Yeah, I just happened on Lulu and I love the way they simplify life for authors. So I decided to upload my book there and see what happens. Interestingly, their formatting requirements differ somewhat from Kindle’s.
The printed version has to wait a bit, because it needs a little more retouching. In the start of November I hired a seller to do it for me, but seems like I have to do her job – she was using direct formatting elements instead of style formatting solutions. Well, most publishing softwares and epub converters just ignore direct formatting… I hope I can do it within a week. It will be a happy day to see it neatly formatted, ready for print. 🙂
