With the book delivered, the hard work begins! Review copies to the media, copies sent to people who helped, and of course the marketing to generate sales. Very encouraging response so far, and today this article in the Sunday Times about the oldest football letter in existence.
Today, the biography of Arthur Kinnaird became a reality, and it is now published! Corrected the last couple of typos and signed off the proof with Createspace, who seem to have pole position in the self-publishing world.
I have ordered a couple of boxes of books to start me off, in fact the postage from America costs more than the books themselves. Once they arrive - in about a week, they promise - it will be time to start the sales and marketing push.
I'll post a preview chapter on the home page but the main thing is to get some good reviews in the quality press.
