The Mysterious Boy - Julie Robinson

Postby Julie2owlsdene » 09 Oct 2017, 13:25

I can now confirm to you all that my book, (title above) will be published on the 31st October, 2017.

I must say I am getting a little scared now! :lol: The information I have received regarding promotions etc, for a new author is a little scary to say the least, but certainly an eye-opener.

The book cover is illustrated by Simon Rowe, who happily took up the challenge when I approached him, and the publisher gave it the thumbs up too, as marketable. So well done to Simon. If I sell huge amounts of copies, I'm sure it's due to Simon's fantastic illustration.

I didn't realize that every time my book is lent out from any library, I get royalties! :lol: These things one just doesn't think about.

According to marketing, my book will be in WH Smiths, Waterstones, Amazon UK and USA, kindle, and others.

After 6 months, it will be available in the book shops in the USA and not just Amazon USA.

A whole new experience for me now awaits.

And my grateful thanks to Tony for allowing me to advertise my own book, on this site. :D

Wow Julie, how exciting. Will you start practising signing your maiden name again now? :wink:

My two grandsons have asked for copies, preferably signed by Julie, when it is published. :D

I will pop in on here when I get a copy, Sixret. I only have a proof copy at the moment, which has proof stamped over it. :lol:
