My very good FB friend Damien (@VillaLeMarcheItaly) tells me I have screwed up again! After reading my post showing the cover of the newly-published paperback version of A Recipe for Disaster he had this to say…
Steve, you’ve completely missed the point…. I’ve looked all over the Cookucina site and NOWHERE could I find clickable links to either A Recipe for Disaster or the complete Cookucina TV series – how on earth are people supposed to find them!?
So, here we go, there are a couple of clickable links in the paragraphs above (at least I hope so – Damien will tell me if I’m wrong), and I’ll have a go at making a Tab in the site with all the links.
And here’s a sneak preview of the cover!
I hope to have the print version available to buy fairly soon through Amazon.com (or .co.uk or most other Amazons). I’ve seen a proof copy and it looks really good.
Best bit, though, is that every time I have to read through it to check for new typos etc. it still makes me laugh out loud occasionally. Can’t be bad!
…but getting there!
This self-publishing is challenging stuff, but as long as you don’t get dispirited you will finally get there (piano piano, as we say in Italy!). At the moment I am on the closing stretch of getting the ebook onto all sorts of platforms (including some very important American ones), So fairly soon (I will let you know!) it will be up on iBooks, Barnes and Noble, and all sorts of others I have barely heard of. Try this for a start…
…where, if you’re quick, you’ll find A RECIPE FOR DISASTER at the top of the page (because it’s just gone “live”). Smashwords is the mechanism I am using to get it on to all these platforms, and you’ll be able to search for it there, but I have a little bit of refinement still to do to get it on to iBooks. Only a matter of days I hope.
PS I am learning a lot as I go along, so if you need any advice on e-publishing (or at least what NOT to do!)…
