The Unread Copy

I’ve started and deleted this post so many times. It’s hard to put into words the heavy sadness that I’m trying to describe. One of the good things about writing is the pride that your family feel about your achievements; one person who was especially proud was my Auntie Jenny. She excitedly messaged me when my local paper ran a piece on my book and eagerly tracked down a copy. She downloaded a copy of Tiger Tiger and said she would save it to read during her recovery from a kidney stone operation; tragically she had the operation and never recovered. On the 28th of August my Auntie, Jenny Healey passed away, even though she never got to read it I know that she’s proud and I’m determined to make her even more proud. I’d like to think that her and her mum, my much missed Nanny, are together now and laughing at all of the willy words, and maybe adding a few more to the mix.

Pixels to Paper

I’m currently embarking on a very exciting project. Thanks to the support of a friend I can self publish copies of Tiger Tiger. Actual books I can hold and smell and hopefully sell.

That’s the scary bit, what if they don’t sell, what if I’m left with a pile of books that no one wants? A mere vanity project.

I have people supporting me who think that won’t be the case; my backer, the manager of my local Harris + Hoole who wants me to do a book launch there, the people who have bought the eBook and left a trail of 5 star reviews. It’s still scary though, the switch from pixels to paper and the possibility I’ll have a product that will please no one but me. Guess I just need to take a leap of faith…

 

The electronic version of Tiger Tiger is available for £1.99 in the Kindle Store http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00D5EYHAM/ref=cm_cr_mts_prod_img

But I don’t have a Kindle…

I’m hearing this a lot. Lots of people don’t have Kindles, I get it. I like the smell and feel of real books too but in the cut-throat world of modern publishing eBooks are often the best route for authors like me.

Now Amazon want to sell Kindles so they don’t make it that obvious that you can read Kindle books without a Kindle but you can!

You can read Kindle books on:

a computer

a smartphone

a tablet

You just need the free Kindle app. SO go to Amazon and search ‘Tiger Tiger Nicola Sheehan’ and the right hand side of the screen will appear as below.

Then you can install the software for free on whichever platform you choose, sign in with your Amazon password and even get a sample of the book before you choose to downoad it. Simple really!
