Or rather, Start press! I'm happy to say the final proof copy of the Hetzenberg Chronicles arrived today and I approved it only minutes ago!

As you can see above it all looks very spiffy, and will be on sale in approx. fifteen days time. I'll post a link to Amazon's CreateSpace site when it's ready to go! Thank you one and all for your patience while the creative process was underway.

Trials and tribulations overcome!

I think I may have mentioned working to produce a book in print form is no picnic. If my recent experience is anything to go by, if it was a picnic it'd be one well-visited by ants, wasps and other creepy-crawlies!

Still, the proofing is done and submitted to the printers. I just have to wait now for the next stage.

Have a happy Presidents' Day weekend, everybody!

So here we have them - two print copies of the Hetzenberg Chronicles, volume 1 - Prelude to War. There's a wonderfully tactile sensation associated with handling print copies of your own work, and these are no different. However, proof copies are intended as a final check on quality before going into full production, and these have shown up some internal errors which I'll have to correct before giving the okay. At the current rate I'm looking at a release date sometime in early March, if not sooner. Watch this space!

On the way!

Finally! All the problems with the cover art have been solved (my thanks to Elaine Lanmon for her help and advice!). A proof copy of the Hetzenberg Chronicles, volume one is on order. I'll post a photo of the glorious tome when it arrives! Watch this space...
