I went to meet my publisher, Raye at Honey Pot Press today. I am going to publish my two stories for reluctant readers, and my story which forms a guide to writing for young people, or anyone really who wants to look at different forms of narrative.
There, I said it! Quite calmly as if it was something I did frequently “I went to meet my publisher”… whoohoo! I am so excited! I have self-published four novels as e-books for Kindle, but my children’s stories will be real in my hand, actual, with pages, made out of paper, books! they will be for sale in books hops! I will try and get them into schools! I will be able to pose with them, write dedications in them, send them to friends and family… It really is the beginning of a thrilling adventure, and if in ten years time, I am sitting here with piles of unsold copies of ‘Run, Blue, Run!’, ‘Screaming King Harry’ and ‘The Story of Rufus Redmayne’, even if they end up in the remainder pile in a bookshop, or on a shelf in a charity shop, I won’t mind, because I will have published my work!
