Yet more about the #tradpub experience

Maybe I’m just unfortunate. Maybe this is the way of things these days, but this experience is firming up my resolve that this will definitely be my last traditionally published book. These posts relate the situation so far: And so to the latest… Just before the last weekend in May, I received an email from […]

More #Tradpub experience…

This past week I have been working away from home, and had a revelation courtesy of one of my enthusiastic clients: my new equestrian book is available on Amazon for pre-order, and has a firm publishing date.
