A week after having been told by Night Publishing that my book would be published “this week”, I’d decided this morning to take matters into my own hands, and had just started to write this update to publish this evening, when I received an email from NP. Yes, they’d read my mind – they were preparing my book for publication today! As it turns out, they’re still at the “preparing” stage so the publication date is still unknown, but it does appear to be creeping closer.
It’s all rather serendipitous, because I’d been on the point of launching my book for sale via Lulu and Smashwords, and I can now do all three more or less at the same time.
Lulu and Smashwords offer self-publishing facilities, and both sites now feature the paperback and digital versions of “New Beginnings” for sale. The prices vary, unfortunately, and I have very little control over that but I’ve tried to get them as close as possible. I do, however, have the ability to offer discounts so I’ve done that on both sites. I still have no idea what the sale price will be via Night Publishing, but I will update about that as soon as I have more information.
Even if you’re not interested in buying, please take a look at both sites and let me know if everything is working properly!

In the meantime, the newly updated Kindle / e-book version of “New Beginnings” is still available on Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.com, and Amazon.de. You don’t need to own a Kindle in order to download the book, as Amazon offer free downloadable software for that.
The Amazon page will change shortly, when Night Publishing take over the promotion of sales there.
I’d really welcome feedback, good or bad, which you can leave on any of the above sites, or here, or via email (see my website for more details).
