We’re Getting There!

28 Mar

For the benefit of those who have never undertaken this, I’ll tell you…

The publication of a book: any book: is a process encompassing many tasks.

There’s a constant stream of decisions, ranging from titles to topics, language to themes.  Then, there’s the actual writing: nowadays,  a computer replaces my now outdated typewriter, and I wonder how, previously,  I ever finished anything!

Next comes revision, which can be done many times over, but here you need to be careful not to over-work. Just as too many cooks spoil the broth, too much tweaking can spoil the book!

Self-published authors have the chance to choose their own covers, which can be an extension of artistry, and stamp the book (almost) instantly recognizable. Here, I’m lucky to have my husband Ronald Sharp, the Sydney Opera House organ builder, and expert photographer, to design it.

Hooray! Our sixth book is almost there… and, any day now, I’ll announce its title. But you’ll have to wait a little longer for its release date.

Fingers crossed for a successful outcome!
