Well to be honest I have written much over the last week, I have jotted down a few ideas towards the ghost stories collection but not actually spent much time working on them. You may ask why I was so excited on sunday at this idea and I still am but real life is playing havoc with my writing. After six weeks off sick with my back I have been back at work this week only a couple of shifts but it still takes some adjusting back to the swing of things.
The poll results were fairly conclusive 53 percent of those who voted went for the short story collection ebook, but I have been musing on going one step further. It has been pointed out to me that christmas is on its way, yes I know it is only August but in only a few weeks we all know that those snowflake filled cards will begin appearing in card shops across the country. Now I don’t know about you but I have relatives I hate buying for, I struggle everytime searching out the perfect gift but I am thinking would it be weird this year to give them a book by me? I am toying with the idea of using CreateSpace to be able to order physical copies of the collection as gifts. I don’t know what the costing will be like and until I actually writing the short stories and do it I won’t know if it is a realistic option I did look at the lulu print option once before and found it would be very expensive to self publish with them but it would also give an extra avenue for people finding my work.
Those who self publish via Ebook have you looked into this option? Is it egotistical to even think of doing this as a present?
What do you think?
