Hi  Ed

No, I don't have an Amazon seller account (*). This was a manuscript that was published in a slightly-different form by a western publisher last year, but due to poor sales the rights reverted to me. I thought it was a good book and didn't want to simply bottom-drawer it, so I rewrote it, changed a few things that I hadn't been happy with (it had been part of someone else's series) and sent it to a new publisher and they took care of the rest.

(*) I did try and set up a seller account for other reasons but ended up clicking the wrong button and heading down the professional seller route (which involves paying Amazon a bunch of £s every month). I've tried to back-track, but you can't so I'm in Amazon Seller limbo... Don't want to go forward, can't go back.

Nice one, Del :afro:

Did you have to open an Amazon seller account to do this? I opened one for my business last year, and found the process quite onerous and confusing. Finally starting to get a few sales through now. Finding Ebay better in terms of charges, but get a lower sales volume there. Good luck with your sales  :smiley:

Bit of a long story around this one, but it was a completed manuscript that I wanted to get published, so I tried Wordwooze and it's now out:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Blood-Red-Widow-Derek-Rutherford-ebook/dp/B086BS628K/ref=pd_ybh_a_4?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=XYBR9QSNZP56HE2FPNRM

I'm actually very pleased with this one (which is why I wanted to get it out there).

Cheers

 :afro: Thanks Pharo. It was a bit dull, TBH. I'd usually have a big slap-up dinner with my family and a few drinks, but couldn't be done in the middle of the lockdown. It can wait  :smiley:

Happy Birthday, Ed!  :cheers:

At least it's still April 1 here in the States... I guess it's already Thursday in the UK. Hope you had a good one.

Oh, Ed! That's a terrible thing to have believed all these years! I'm worried that it's a self-fulfilling prophecy. My dad said he wanted to live to be 90. The family all gathered around to celebrate his achieving that milestone in February 2018, and he died in his sleep on April 3, just six weeks later. Belief is a powerful thing.

Yeah, got to wonder. It's funny though, in my early teens I was a bit of a young Nostradamus for a while there. A lot of strange things happened that adults couldn't explain and I could demonstrate reliably, such as watches stopping as soon as they were put on my wrist, and that old TV tennis thing with the dot on the screen, it wouldn't work for me. I soon grew out of it, but one of the things that popped into my mind at the time was the age of my death and I've always wondered if it would turn out to be true. I hope not, because the manner of my death, according to a recurring nightmare, was falling through a dark sky into undulating black water. I'm guessing a plane exploding in mid air, or something similar. Yeah, I know  :idiot:

Yep, basically, one of the common side effects of the chemo is upper respiratory tract infections, so I'm guessing it would be deadly with coronavirus on top of it. I've got a funny feeling I'm fucked anyway, one way or another. Right from when I was young I've believed I would die when I'm 53 years old, and it's my 53rd birthday in a few days

I suppose there must be good medical reasons, Ed? Maybe to help keep your immune system as strong as possible?

The whole world is changing and it's all driven by this little invisible thing.

Crazy times.

Ain't life a bitch. My chemotherapy has been called off due to Coronavirus. Couldn't make it up, could you? :grin:
