Well, after endless rounds of editing and formatting, as well as adding extra parts to the story, I have finally submitted the manuscript to Kindle Scout. The first 5000 words of the book are now out there for the public to read which is kind of nerve wracking but also exciting. I’m really hoping that my book is good enough to cut it against the Pros, and that people want to keep reading it after the excerpt. So I’m going to spend the next 30 days plugging social media to try and get people to nominate the book for publication and if I’m very lucky, it will get chosen. Hopefully I won’t annoy my Facebook followers too much either. Thanks a million to those who have already voted for Tikopia and my fingers are now very crossed.
