Just sent A Girl In Time off to the proof reader. Early next week it'll go a typesetter in Scotland for print layout. I could launch the ebook next week, but I'd like to have both print and digital ready to go together. Once it's sold a few copies and gathered some tasty 5 Star reviews, I'll get my agent to sell the audiobook rights.
Thanks to everyone who helped out in beta. It was great going through the final copy edit, seeing how much the original ms had been improved by your contributions.
I commissioned my old editor and publisher Joel Naoum (now at Critical Mass) to handle the print, and to put together a small press package for the book. I wouldn't normally bother for an indie title, but since this will probably be the first novel published in which Donald Trump is President, it seemed a reasonable outlay.
As soon as I have a final corrected version, I'll run up ebooks for all the betas. I'm using a piece of software called Vellum, which beautifully automates the process, but because this is the first time I've used it, I want to make sure it does the job as advertised.
I haven't settled on price points yet. The print copy will be the same as any trade published paperback, simply because of the costs involved.
The ebook with be five or six dollars full retail, but half price for bookclub members.
