Thursday January 31st – Self-publishing blog diary

Start a group, Halfway to Venus, on Facebook – 24 members within a few hours and some funny and encouraging messages from friends. Discover that the labels I have aren’t compatible with any templates I’ve got – spend an inordinately long time fiddling – but finally decide to give up and buy some new ones. The postcards should arrive tomorrow which is why I have been doing the labels – I could have written the whole lot by hand many times over – but at least I now know how to do them. What an exciting life! I send the corrected and proof read copy back to Antony the designer by Special Delivery – I find it terrifying having to trust the post.
