Remember, Remember the 27th of December
If I should get hit by a bus,
Don’t make a fuss.
You’ll get your copy on time because
Now I’ve ironed out all the flaws,
Pulled out the stops
Against the clocks
And pressed submit
Washed my hands of it.
R&M 6 is ready and waiting
In Amazon’s system
Its place in the series
Of south-coast crime books
Here’s hoping the tale is a match for its looks.
In case that’s a bit confusing for anyone, what I’m trying to say is that today I uploaded the final version of Unhappy Families (Romney and Marsh File #6) to Amazon. So if I drop dead tomorrow it will still get published.
I won’t look at it again. Amazon won’t let me interfere with it now until after publication date. (Can you imagine if I took a peek and saw a mistake?)
I will now spend the next two weeks living on my nerves, medically prescribed drugs and the toilet as I worry about the same things I worry about every time I self-publish a book.
The buck stops here.
