Almost ready to publish

So, one more week of tweaks to go, and the digital version of the book will be available on Amazon at a reduced cost while I run a pre-sale launch campaign.  Friday 28th April I order the proof copy of the hardback edition and am aiming to have that on sale by May 11th.

This week has been the first week where I have actually been stressed with the process.  I can't register the ISBN's with Nielson until I have the final format and page count done.  In order to get into Waterstones 'local author' scheme, I've got a load of hurdles to go through too.  I cant finalise the cover PDF until I have a page count, as that affects the spine dimensions.  By the end of next week, I will be able to start taking those jobs off of my very long to-do list.

I've planned the first of the video blogs for YouTube and with the help of my friend Siobhan Smart I have written a press release and a school's introductory letter.

One thing that is complete now is the shopping page for the Figmentasia website.  Although none of the buy buttons is active, viewers can now see what will be available over the next few months.
