I AM a fool, an imbecile and an idiot!
For the past three months I have been working hard to collect enough songs and poems to publish my second book: Another Hill – Songs and Poems of Love and Theft.
I have been drafting the collection on a preformed MS Word Manuscript of 100 pages – to match the first book: The Hill- Songs and Poems of Darkness and Light. I had planned to publish the new book next month (November). But, I have been stuck on between 70% and 80% finished for the past eight weeks, so decided to delay publication until next spring.
This afternoon I discovered by chance that the manuscript I have been saving to is A4 in size, when in reality it should be A5!
Having converted the manuscript to the correct size I now have 123 pages of songs and poems.
So now begins the painful process of editing and cutting to fit the work into 100 pages!
And a pre-Christmas publication date is now back on the cards!
My first book The Hill: Songs and Poems of Darkness and Light in paperback, is still available priced at just £3.99 with £1.80 for UK post and packing. To obtain a copy go to www.writeahead.co.uk. Or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
