Before publishing your first paper book with CreateSpace there are a couple of things to consider. Even though you can update it and change the content, once the book has its ISBN and is live for sale you can’t change its size and the colour of the paper. Also, once it’s linked to its Kindle book on Amazon they keep a certain amount of printed books in stock for their quick delivery system, so if you find any major errors in it and rush to fix them, those in stock books will still have to sell first before the corrected ones become available.

Oh to be a writer

As much as I am determined to finally complete my novel, it would be a lie if I said it hasn’t been a struggle. I know of a few authors that smash out 5-6 novels a year and it baffles my little noggin.

Life and work have well and truly rooted themselves in the middle of my novel and stolen my time like a very successful cat burglar.

Are any of you guys struggling to fit your writing in? I’d love to hear people’s solutions to organising their time.

Any help would be much appreciated!
