Organizing my mind

The purpose of this blog is to splash, in rough draft, my experiences and observations in the publishing project.

My experience at this point is one of being a bit overwhelmed, so I'll just jot down point-wise what I have to do until December (except for getting printed and launching the 3 new books).

Right now:
  • Upload all our books to BookData
    • following which, contact Waterstones
  • Upload the rest of our books to Amazon
    • for which purpose:
    • Straighten the insides of VT1
    • Finish the insides of the "workhorse" version of "Not Another Scale Book" (+get it an ISBN)
    •  PDF them in the right format
    • Finish formatting SW3 for Kindle; ISBN and upload
  • Publish: "Naked in the Sea" (Marie M) -> format, ISBN and Kindle; P'kaboo ISBN and P'kaboo version ebook
  • Books to Paul
  • Books to Les
  • Monday: Dispatch books to Malaysia
  • Done: Proofed SW3, Lupa and SW1 in paper, requested reproof (position issues)
  • Check that the improved pages on P'kaboo are uploaded
  • Finish the new order form PHP 

  • The issues with Paypal and shipping cost calculations are unbearable.  Need to install a different shopping cart on the website.
  • "A Tensional Guitarist":  Reformat so it can be made into a Kindle book.
  • The ShortStory Project:  
    • Find a title; 
    • ISBN, 
    • select collection, 
    • get cover
    • ?Audience participation? 
I'm sure I'm forgetting a few things.  But I may remember them when I'm through the list.
