I had planned on recording a video update, but as it happens my ability to form spoken sentences has completely left me and instead I find myself staring off into space for about 15 minutes. I’ve had a pretty manic couple of days; so I thought now was a good time to fill you in on what I’ve been up to!
As the title of this post suggests, I have now formed and registered my own publishing company- Constellation Publishing Limited. The main reason for this is so I can obtain my own ISBN codes (the little barcode numbers I need to put the book on amazon and in bookstores!) By doing this, I’ve taken the slightly complicated route, but in the long run I think it will be more beneficial in terms of distributing the book. For the mean time, it really is just the blanket company under which I’ll be publishing my book, but who knows what I might do with it in the future!
A lot of what I’ve done seems to be the behind the scenes stuff that I’ve been waiting for a while to do; all delightfully…business like and responsibility fuelled. *shudders*
I have literally just sent my manuscript off for it’s first lot of copy editing and proofreading. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks I’ll have my finished copy and ISBN numbers, so it’ll just be the cover to finish before sending off for the proof copy.
I’ve been investigating more into preorder packages, the poll for that is still up and running so please do head over to my facebook page and vote!
Hopefully I can start designing a few things in the not too distant future, I’m so eager to get everything going now the business side is all coming together, and any suggestions would be a massive help!
Speaking of facebook, how would you like the chance to win a free copy of my book? Well, as soon as my facebook page hits 200 likes I’ll be launching giveaway- so please do spread the word of my facebook, like it and just come on over for a chat 🙂
I also have a rough release date in mind, but I’ll keep that to myself…for now 🙂
