    Default Third book coming soon now!

    Yesterday we finished the cover and uploaded text and cover to the printing company. Within a few days, I expect an answer along the lines of "we checked the format, and everything is okay" or maybe "you need to adapt this to ...".
    Next step is to decide the price at which they'll sell it in their webshop. And order some 70 books, 10 of which stay with them. And pay for them.
    Then wait for a van from the Dutch Post company with heavy boxes. And THEN I'll have my books.
    I expect (hope) the whole thing will take about a month from now. YAY! At last something that gets finished!

    Thanks but er... it's not such a big deal, as I've published it myself. Actually, everybody can do that, provided they pay for it.
    The real publishers all rejected the manuscript. So I did it myself, on a much smaller scale than a commercial publisher would do, as I don't have to live from it.
    Of course, making a real, paperback book is great anyway and I'm happy enough :-)

    That's still cool. I'd love to have my own book some day. Just wondering if you also have an e-book version? I've heard that's how people do it and slowly build up their readers.

    About the e-book: sure! It's quite easy to register an e-book together with a paperback. It's not that common around here, though. Of my previous book, I've sold exacly one of the e-book version :-). It's still cool, like you said. I'll keep on writing anyways and see what'll happen.

    Forgot to add something:

    Yes I am proud :-) (but I didn't mean the image to be that large...)
    And I've ALSO sent out the new manuscript (nr. 5, a.k.a. the cursed science fiction manuscript) to the publishers. Fingers crossed and an extra large amount of patience ordered.
