So, today was a strange kind of day. I published the paperback version of That Sadie Thing. It kind of just slunk into existence. I was expecting some big display of celebration from Amazon, but there wasn't even a 'Publish Now' button... it just happened.
I got a hug from my mum though, so that was nice. And, I should warn you, if you know her, you will be getting my book as a birthday present!
This is the very excitable picture I posted on Facebook a couple of days ago when the proof copy was delivered!
And this is the copy in close up. Isn't it pretty? I honestly spent half the time I should have been doing the final proof read just flipping through the pages.
Long before POD publishing, I was the person who used to format my Word documents into book size and shape just to see what it would look like. It was a rather surreal experience when I was doing it for real.
And finally, here's a picture to convince you that you really need to buy a copy of this book - just look how good it will look on your book shelf...
