The downside of self-publishing is that I have to be my own mini Random House – doing just about everything from writing to marketing to the technical computer stuff – all a learning curve for me that takes a frustratingly long time. It’s difficult enough when your energy levels are normal, but it’s a drag when you have CFS/ME and you go at tortoise pace.
For instance, I’m a week behind getting my memoir on Amazon.com (through CreateSpace) as there are corrections to be made by my book printer provider. I don’t have Indesign, so I can’t do them on my computer. So I’m dependent on hearing back from them and when they can do the corrections. Self-publishing sure ain’t for the faint-hearted!
For my friends down under, making the book available online to Australia, New Zealand and South Africa requires yet another hurdle over which to jump.
I have about 400 paperbacks in stock for anyone who wants a copy. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you a pay-upon-receipt electronic invoice hosted by Paypal where you can pay by credit card. Give me your mailing address and my book will be on its way.
