Doing big, scary things

I've been thinking, and I decided that I didn't like the idea of publishing with CreateSpace after all. The main problem was that it's based in America and I'm in the UK, so anyone I talk to who may want to buy the book will have to pay a lot extra for shipping.

So I was looking around the sites I have bookmarked and discovered that one of my favourite publishers, Wyvern Publications, is starting a new children's imprint called Pixiefoot Press. After a few days of dithering, and another day trying to make sure my synopsis makes sense, I've submitted Dark Magic to Wyvern for consideration.

Fingers crossed!


  1. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, too! BTW, I found your blog on the NaNoWriMo thread. I'm following now!

  2. Good luck!
    (I also found your blog from the NaNo forums, and I want to follow, but there isn't a 'follow' button anywhere...hmmm)
    Anyway - I'm crossing my fingers for you! Your novel sounds interesting, so I may just pick up a copy!

  3. Fair enough about Create Space. I couldn't even bring myself to use the free proof copy in the end.

    I also found you on NaNo.♥

  4. Thanks!

    Amber, the follow option is right at the top of the page next to the search box :)

    NaNo is a great place to find interesting blogs ♥
