Hi, I’m considering self-publishing a paperback version of some of the posts published on my other site. The project, My Musical Journey, will tell my story as a classical musician in memoir form, touching on some darker subjects like exposure to gangs and close brushes with death. I estimate that this book, roughly 40,000 words, will be available from around spring 2018.
I haven’t posted for a while. Like a lot of people in the UK, I’ve succumbed to a recurrent winter virus – a cross between a lingering cold and ongoing fatigue. I’ve continued editing my current novel, though, and practising the piano when one is available.
Recently, I heard of a new opportunity for writers – Amazon’s KDP Paperback Print on Demand Service. I think the service is still in the beta testing stage, but it does sound like promising idea and I believe it is/will be free (printing costs deducted from royalties).
Anyway, something to think about.
