Just finished my first full 12 hour stint of correcting typos and other errors my professional proof reader, Frank Kresen, of Proof Positive, Kansas City, USA, has found in the proof copy of my print-on-demand paperback autobiography, Dafydd Bach: Death of Innocence and I am knackered.
I’ve had mini nervous breakdowns all day, in floods of tears, as reading over what I had written previously revived emotions attached to the people and events that I had written about; and I still have unresolved psychological issues about some of them. I’ve only reached page 32 of 360 and I know that I haven’t come to the worst issues yet.
But still, I’m a big boy now, and not ashamed to weep, so I should be able to complete my task of correcting all the typos and other errors that Frank has informed me about and get the book published by the end of this month; and maybe start getting some royalties.
Incidentally I managed to sell one of my ebooks to someone in Germany in February – so UK, USA and DE – am beginning to feel I can be an internationally recognized author – baby steps – every journey begins with the first baby steps 🙂 http://dafyddtomoshyswain.co.uk
