  • Book update!

    I finished the remaining drafts yesterday of the main chapters for my book (currently standing at 67,000 words). They've all been sent to my publishers for review and comments. The first three chapters have come back with really positive feedback... i.e. good content, just a few points to expand on a little, etc. I'm really pleased with this as it's the first time that my writing for the book has been assessed. I'm now getting to the time when I have to start burning like crazy to create more items to photograph for illustrations, plus completing all the other accompanying images. It now all seems very real... I'm going to be an author soon!

      How exciting, most of us say we are going to write a book one day - but very few people do it.

      Well done you!

        Well done Si

        It takes a lot of hard work and commitment to write a book.

        You'll soon be appearing on the shelves of WH Smith Borders and Waterstones! X
        I started off with nothing and I've still got most if left.

                If it wasn't for the Forum, I wouldn't be writing this book. After I joined here, I got loads of advice on selling my work as I was just making for a hobby at first really. I then found out about Flickr and started displaying photos of my work there. And that's how the publishing company found me... the rest is history.

                          Freakily enough, if I did a book launch of any sort... it will probably be in Hampshire! I'm in negotiation as we speak.
