Many congratulations, it's quite a feat to bring a book to completion. I was wondering, will it be available on kindle?

Yes it will be on Kindle, but probably not until the New Year as I have to get my head around the reformatting process and then converting the publishing file into it :oops: In theory I know how to do it but it's awkward to rework one huge file and style sheet into 20 smaller ones and a glossary - oy vey! :shifty:

Thanks for the thought Christian - I've got an Adobe application I can use which is a cross platform thing as the printer I'm using has link ups with sites that use other eReaders besides Kindles. It's compatible with the publishing software I use so hopefully shouldn't be too difficult to work out... :shifty:

OK thanks. I'm intrigued, let me know when it's available and I'll give it a try. Hope the re-formatting isn't too much of a pain.

:lol: I'm starting work on the ePUB file tomorrow I expect so it may be sooner than later ;)

I've put up the opening chapter/scene-setter on the book blog and there's more stuff about the plotlines, research and backstories to read for free :D

I've never seen that show but always heard good things about it. I'll have to give it a try sometime.

Today I feel.... Aaaaahhhhhhh! Got a massage yesterday and it helped so much. I was really in bad shape, my neck and upper back were so knotted that I was in pain and couldn't sleep well. Couldn't get in with my usual person. I was nervous about going to someone new, but she was great too. Different, but great. And I learned a few new tricks. I think I would be a good massage therapist. :think:

Last minute panic...best motivation for studying for an exam. Or rather, 7 of them.
