It’s bad luck to keep both fingers crossed, so don’t do that. But I just got comments from Smashwords and they said that the only problem with my manuscript is that the names don’t match. I left my middle name out a couple of times, which is a hindrance. But presumably, once I’ve changed that, then Survive by the Sword will be available through all of the retailers and formats.
Although I will not be abandoning Confessions of a Cart Jockey, I am planning an entirely new blog that will focus only on my writing, past, present and future. This will include reviews of other people’s books. Conversations I have about writing and about the process of self-publishing my work.
