Monday March 23rd – Self publishing blog diary

I’m increasingly thinking of Venus as last year’s project … however still have to do a VAT return and I had to send a cheque to Central my distributors because of all the returns. The system is really skewed when bookshops can send back returns indefinitely – it means no one – publisher, author, distributor has any idea of how many books are sold. One of the more amusing things (I think its amusing) is that on the Venus page in their ‘Customers Viewing This Page May Be Interested in These Sponsored Links’, Amazon have got links to armoured vehicles, armoured trucks, armour plate stockists etc. The power of arms!
