If you’re self-publishing your first book, chances are you’ll concentrate on the e-version first and foremost and worry about the print version later. If you format your file yourself (rather than using a company to do it for you) it’s obviously much more complicated and time-consuming (although to be honest, you still have to proof the file, so using a company is not the complete shortcut you might imagine). I’ve laid down a beginner’s guide of things to consider about the file itself.
I love listening to music when I write and even more so when I read. So it made sense to put together a playlist of songs to go with my new book, The Sham. These are songs that I listened to as I was writing but they also go with major events in the book. More to the point, they’re just tip top tunes!
