Hello... hello? Hellooooo *echos*
Has my lack of blogging led to a mass desertion?
Well, I guess I'm back for now. I still have to deal with the hospital, and of all the days they could have picked for my next appointment (I'm SURE there are 366 the could have chosen from this year) they picked the one day I just wanted to be lazy and eat cake. Hopefully after this they'll be able to sort it out and things don't get escalated. *shudder*
I'm slowly working through my emails. If you haven't heard from me by Monday resend it, but I should get through them all by then. My inbox is sort of overflowing. I'm also working on a totally new project, as well as the second book in The Chimaera Chronicles. I've taken a bit of a jump, with the second book, I'm just hoping people enjoy it. I foresee the arrival of teasers soon too.
The Chimaera Chronicles paperback: So I have to admit defeat. I was ready to approved the paperback when I realized that the title and my name were missing from the top of the first seventy-odd pages. I've struggled with it and it's just not working. I wish I could just use html, like when I made my ebook, but it's not that easy. I know it may seem like a small thing, but to put out something that's less than perfect is just not professional, and as much as I wish I could just push the 'approve' button I can't do it. For now this will have to be on hold until I can afford to pay someone to format it for me.
Ebooks: For those of you who don't know, the only ebook providers I can upload directly to at the moment are Kindle and Smashwords, which is why they were the first retailers to have The Sphinx Project go live. All other retailers are fed through Smashwords, who distribute the file to Kobo, Barnes and Noble, Diesel, Blio, Sony and all the rest. Unfortunately, it seems that Smashwords it taking much longer than it should be, and it's now more than six weeks since the file was submitted to them. It's just a matter of time though, and I'll let you know as soon as the book is up everywhere. Until it is available you can still purchase any file format you need from smashwords.com.
Anyway, that's all from me now. I hope you're all wonderful and that you are enjoying The Sphinx project!
