After thinking it through and speaking to my relatives and friends I've decided to go the long haul and use Gardeners and Waterstones. These stand the biggest change of success in terms of sales. To assist with my ordering and printing costs I would appreciate folk making a comment after this blog goes out on whether they might purchase and copy and if so how many.
This way I can get a rough idea of whether, at the end of all this, I'll be poorer or ever so slightly richer (who am I kidding) Please leave your comments and numbers below. The book will be coming out at a cost of £9.99.
This is a novel primarily for young adults, though it's content is such that I feel any age will enjoy it who like urban fantasy stories.
Its the journey of a city troll called Onk. He rescues an unborn fairy and, after some encouragement from Harty Springfield a tree elf, agrees to leave London to keep the baby safe. They have many adventures as they travel south and end up in Thanet by mistake. Meanwhile, an evil witch Gristle, is tracking them intent on gaining the fairy babe to use, crushed, in a youth potion.
Many thanks who ever responds.
