I hope you are easing into the New Year, full of resolutions and not too much haste. Always good to have a plan. As for me, there are several items on the drawing board.. some very exciting news and as always, more work to be done.
Still, it doesn't feel like work if it's what you enjoy! Well, I'll tell myself that, as really, it's time for bed.. but couldn't wait to let you know that I have just finished uploading a copy of Bradley and the Magic Carpet up to Ingram Spark.
Now you may or may not have heard of Ingram Spark, but if you have published a book yourself you may well have.
The good news is that Ingram Spark is an alternative Print On Demand service that can also get copies of your book into SHOPS. Yes! Remember those? Well, that's the plan anyway. Amazon do a great job of shipping to your door - but what if someone else wants to sell my book, and share some of the cost and profit for that too? Well that's the idea, with Ingram Spark you can.
Royalty-wise, I think it works out about the same (and we're really not in it for the money, are we?! Lawks!) however, it does mean other vendors can buy at trade prices and stock in shops where more people will see the book.
So I think this is very exciting. Anyway, I'd been having an issue or two with resolutions, and meeting specs for their pdf requirements.. yada yada yada.. (yes, it's late I know...!) but this evening I've finally fixed that - so the files are now uploaded to their site, set up fees paid.. and we'll wait and see if the files are successful.
Fingers crossed so the carpet can fly! I'll keep you posted.
G'night! I'll leave you with an image of a 300dpi parrot (finally!) (copyright reserved to Jacqui East and Singing Frog Publishing of course!)
