Great news on the Dandelions and Bad Hair Days front. After many months the publisher has now handed me a manuscript formatted for Kindle and just before the weekend I uploaded it - the first time I have done such a thing. Exciting!
For the bargain price of £3.08 (a very odd price set by Amazon when I put in £2.99...) you can have instant delivery to your Kindle, or to Kindle for Android or PC - making it available to anyone. Even those of you with an iPad!
As an eBook the margins are very good and as with the paperback about £2 from each copy sold will go to the mental health charities - all the profits made. So if you can, do download it. It has all 5* reviews and lots of great quotes such as 'inspiring' and 'heartfelt and personal'.
I have also set up my own small press to publish and promote ebooks. Further news about Mickleden Press soon!
Great excitement yesterday as I took delivery of the final artwork for the cover of Dandelions and Bad Hair Days.
Wonderful artist Ingrid Smejkal has designed this original work especially for Dandelions and Bad Hair Days and I simply can't thank her enough for donating it to the project.
Taking the working title as her inspiration, the 'hair' of the dandelion clock takes flight as the androgynous figure takes a first hopeful look between the fingers of strong hands. The colours are bold - an uplifting sky blue and the green figure to reflect the stalk of the plant.
The text has yet to be added to the cover but already I am sure the book will stand out on the book shelves..
At present I am having a tough time thinking of a sub-title to the book - one that I am happy with. 'Experiences of living with depression' is just not punchy enough when the title is so creative! Any ideas gratefully received.
