I am SO excited, I have to share!
As advance order people know, I ordered the first print run of the paperback of Love versus Goliath on April 24th. I had expected them to arrive early this week at the latest, so this morning I called Lightning Source to enquire as to progress. I got the big boss on the phone and I have to say, Paul is lovely. As are his staff. I have been a complete newbie at all of this and Lightning Source really have been very helpful and have gone out of their way to answer all my newbie questions. I have no hesitation in recommending them!
I was assured I would receive the books on Friday and asked they change the delivery address to my work, as otherwise I wouldn’t get to collect them until Saturday morning. Then there is all that autographing and envelope addressing stuff to do!
Tonight I received an email advising the books will be delivered to me just after lunch tomorrow! Grinning from ear to ear I am!
Today I also signed an eBook library lending agreement with Wheelers Books, who supply school and other libraries and sent them electronic files. Wheelers have already listed the paperback! The book is already catalogued by the SCIS. I am so grateful for the support of the SCIS!
Given I now have Friday night to get some of the autographing done, I should get most posted over the weekend.
Now I just have to find a way to get to sleep tonight! I honestly didn’t think I’d feel as excited as I do. Even getting the positive sales reports for the first half of February for the eBook edition wasn’t as exciting as actually being able to send out autographed copies! Thank you so much to the advance order people who trusted me to deliver, even though most of you knew me only from here or social media. I could not have done this without you!
