I’m so sorry, dear readers, I really am. I fully intended to write this post yesterday and, well, the only excuse I can offer is that I was having technology issues and couldn’t get onto the internet.
I wanted to talk to you about my proof copies! Yeah! Proper printed books!
Basically, if you complete NaNoWriMo you get given this code thing, right? It’s for a company called CreateSpace who are a self-publishing company. Right now I’m not sure that self-publishing is the direction I want to take, but I’m happy to use their book-printing tools if it means I get a copy of my book.
Because of this code I’m entitled to one free proof copy of my book. Only some very awesome people (Spook and Elo among them) decided their books weren’t ready for printing, and gave me their codes. Which means … more copies!
I wanted to get a photo of the proper copy, but can’t find my camera, so here are the two front covers of Version One and Version Two. There’ll be a video up with me and my proof copies very soon, so subscribe to MJLongman on YouTube to get that as soon as it’s up!
Um. I’m going to stop wittering and put up the photos now.
See. You couldn’t get that with an e-book. Okay, so it looks better with the ISBN instead of ‘Made with cover creator’, but hey, this is just the preview, not a photograph….
