Frustrated at not being able to do much over the Easter holidays to update the on-line sites regarding availability, I've decided to pop a few copies on Ebay to sell, for those of you who don't live nearby and would like a copy.
Of course, the best option is for EVERYONE who would like a copy to head into Waterstones and order one. You won't have to pay postage that way, but it might take a while longer - if you're not in a huge hurry it might create demand which what I need. I'm creating a dent where I'm banging my head against the wall. Maybe I'll write about a bulldozer next.
I've been perusing awards sites today, in between cooking the roast, it's fascinating. In just about every category or site I miss out their criteria by one element, "your work cannot be published," "your work must be published before 2015," "your work must be published between Jan and Dec 2016," "your work must be within two years of publication," "your work must be aimed at the north American market," "your anthology must be the work of one author," "your work must be published by a corporate publisher," "your work must have sold 10,000 copies," (some chance!) I did manage to find one I was eligible for and it closed 31st March!
On the upside of the 2 copies I've sold, I had feedback from one reader of Aquasapien saying she couldn't put it down. What every writer wants to hear, thanks kind reader.
