Received Printed Copy of ALIVE This Morning

ALIVE: How to Enjoy Living
First printed copy of ALIVE

I received the first printed copy of my book ALIVE this morning, but unfortunately the print quality of the cover isn’t too good. I’m going to have to get a designer or someone to fix it with the printers as I don’t think people should buy a book with that kind of quality cover.

As to the print quality of the inside it looks fantastic. So almost there!

The eBook version is available at lulu.com though — get it at this link. It’s only $4 (about R30).

    Hi there, What volume are you running? Is it self published? Is it your first? Are you self distributing?

    Hey Mark, I'm self-publishing through www.crink.co.za. Check it out. I'm also planning on doing the same through www.lulu.com as well as Amazon's CreateSpace service. As to Crink, it's South African so the price is more reasonable. However, as I discovered this morning, the quality of the print of the cover is not so cool and I did go over the guidelines in the system. Crink still seems to be in beta so it can be a little difficult to get it to work. I'll need to contact them directly to sort out the cover problem. Not my first :) I did another book called "Single" a few years back, which I've revised and am looking at making available again. Then, soon, my fantasy book "When Twins War" is going to be my next project! Only a few chapters away from finishing the edit -- man, the editing takes FOREVER.

    I keep on starting the writing process, finishing 3 - 6 chapters and then giving up. I spend so much time thinking about them that they end up boring me. I have 3 manuscripts at various stages of development. Hat's off to you.

    Thanks Mark :) Sorry, haven't been at my blog in like more than a week, so busy moving and things. All my manuscripts bore me. I'm so bored of my fiction book right now -- only five chapters to edit and I'm going crazy trying to do it. Been working on it for like 2 / 3 years.
