Why am I in a hurry? Well, if I'm honest, the health scares I had in the Spring let me know that I'm not immortal and I want to see my book, my dream, in print before the Almighty decides to send me any more surprises.
That being the case, and me having no money 'n all, I took advice from from an Authonomy friend and submitted to New Generation for POD publication. (They're part of Legend Press). I'll give a more detailed account when I can give you the full picture. The book should be out in a few weeks.
In the meantime, another friend, Marc Nash (formerly Sulci on Authonomy) has been going for self-pub with Legend Press on one of the more 'upmarket' deals- ie he's paying for it. He's writing a blog about the experience which is really helpful. Here's the link: http://self-publishinguser.blogspot.com/
