So up until now, my next immediate step was in a gray area. Would Sleepless be published with Kindle Scout? Will it be me? When, why and how?
Now I can answer the questions to myself and to anyone who’s interested:
Q: Will Sleepless ever be published?
A: Of course, silly questioning person. It’ll be published in the next two months. Initially, I will probably only publish it on amazon.
Q: Why two months? Isn’t it ready? You said it’s ready!
A: Calm down, crazy questioning person. It’s ready… but there are some small points to tie up:
- Sleepless has links within it to the blog of the protagonist. Those links actually work… except they don’t. I still need to create the blog. The content is all there. It’s all a matter of some design, domain acquisition and hosting
- I don’t have a website yet, but I want to have one when Sleepless is published, so that I can redirect people from within the ending of the book to my website, so that they can register to my mailing list. So that has to happen too.
- There’s some virtual paperwork to handle before I can publish my book. Tax… stuff. Some people are afraid of spiders, some of heights, some of clowns. I’m afraid of bureaucracy. But I’ll get it done.
Q: Are you crying at night because you wanted to be published by Kindle Scout?
A: You’re an annoying imaginary questioning person. I don’t cry at night, I do my crying during the day. And not over this. This will probably be for the best, and is really no biggie.
Q: What is the meaning of…
A: And that’s all for my Q&A between me and myself.
