The Trip, Stumble, Fall and Get Back Up Again

by klparry

Hi.. de.. ho.. Folks! Well, it’s mid-week and time for another edition of “The Trip, Stumble, Fall and Get Back Up Again”, ( the subtitle I’ve just assigned this blog..ha). Been a strange week for me. My spider-sence has been tingling. What I mean by that, for those of you that aren’t well versed in comic lingo…I’ve had the nagging, nearly overwhelming feeling that something was wrong in my little universe. I call it intuition, which I believe most of us possess though we may not always pay attention to it. Needless to say, it has had me quite distracted this week. Fortunately, after having discussed this with one of my sisters, (who, by the way, was having the same thoughts), and making a phone call, I was able to discover what the problem was. I am not at liberty to discuss the details with you but let me just say my spidie-sense was right on. So, don’t ignore that stuff.

On to the subject of my book. I have been plugging away at promoting it, hard when your target audience is 13 to 21 and everyone you know is, well, lets just say..way past that age. I’ve also been preparing, as best I can, for the up coming convention in Vegas. In fact today I received the 20 hardback books I’d ordered from Blurb. Oh, how excited I was to see that box and oh, how my heart dropped when I opened it to find that the title on each and every cover had run off the page. No “R” at the end of Daughter and the “M” in Ransom had been cut in half. It so sucks! Now you’re thinking, “couldn’t she have checked it to make sure that everything fit?” And I did! The soft back looks perfect. Oh,well. Another set of collectors editions, ha! I did go back into the publishing program and  resize the cover image along with adding the ISBN‘s to the copywrite page. Now I’m just waiting to hear back from Blurb to find out whether I’ll need to re-publish or if the corrections can be made to the existing book. Yep! It’s just another day in self publishing paradise. In the meantime, I’ll just keep pluggin’ away.

See you next week 🙂 ~ K.L. Parry
