I have just found out that I won’t have copies of my book quite as early as I had hoped. I have been told to expect to wait three weeks after giving my final approval before it will be printed. Then there is delivery time on top of that.
I am awaiting the final corrected proofs now. They should be with me early next week and, so long as I or my proofreader don’t find any more errors, I can then give my approval for it to go to press.
The front cover is approved, so work will start shortly on the back cover.
Distribution will start in earnest in late October, all being well. Meanwhile, I am telling everyone I meet about it and have met with quite a bit of interest from a number of people.
