    Lovely new pic, Jemima, although I do miss your guinea pig. 😉 My TBR pile is much too big right now so I’ll pass on your ARC offer, unless you wouldn’t mind about a year’s delay in the review. I’ve taken a break from my own writing as I deal with finding a job on top of keeping house and carrying for family. Forgive me

      Thanks, Suzanne. I think there are times when we just have to devote our energies to things like job or house-seeking and family. Writing will still be there. I hope 🙂

      My only pics of guinea pugs with me at present are in the morning with me unkempt, unwashed and in my dressing gown! Bertie is particularly fond of selfies , as was Kevin. I didn’t really appreciate the depth of wrinkles displayed! I’m keeping the guinea pig one for the Princelings books and on Facebook for now.

      Thanks, Anabel. I think sunnies may be the best way to go 🙂

    That cover is glorious! And I’m impressed with your knowledge and willingness to take the time to format and control the e-book technology. The idea gives me headaches and could prevent me from wanting to publish my next novel. Some of us just don’t ‘have it’ like you do. Many congrats – fun to follow you on your ride.

      Thanks! It’s lovely to link-up with you, too!

    Hey, I have internet for a few days, so I’ll pop up a post for the 22nd (I think I can even get at a real computer so I can format it).

    About using the Mac for doing books and ebooks, I use Word for Mac and haven’t had any problems (as far as I know. You might have another opinion!). But for the print books with CS I’ve always had to export a PDF version and upload that. I know that the first few times I formatted an ebook it was torture, but it’s gotten to be pretty easy for me. I don’t know why you get weird artifacts in it, though!

      The weird artefacts are to do with embedded codes that get further jumbled when converting in Mac to Word. Exporting the Mac file to ePub and then uploading it was a cinch.

      I used to do my CS books in one of their templates and didn’t get problems with that. Now I do them using Blurb, which gives me different problems, but mainly due to my stupidity and their not-quite sensible rules from the authors pov, although it makes complete sense from a publishing systems pov.
