The Other Slipper paperback is finally here!

It’s finally here! I squealed with delight when I got home and saw the  package from Createspace last night. I’m so much more excited about this than I was about the release of the e-version but that’s probably because this feels so much more real (you can probably see that I already bent the cover with all my eager page turning). I had a few last-minute tweaks to make after reviewing the proof (oh, the woes of formatting) and now the book has been approved for distribution in the USA and Europe via Amazon. To be honest, the e-version looks so much more appealing when you look at the cost of the paperback ($9.99 – ah, the colossal cost of printing) but not everyone likes to read off a screen so this will give those people a chance to get a hold of the book. Please spread the word as usual and thank you once again for all your support.

Link for purchase via Createspace is: https://www.createspace.com/4007967

I will post the Amazon link once it comes up.

The Other Slipper by Kenechi Udogu

It’s finally on Amazon! I’m so excited!

Blurb:  When Jo finds a lone glass slipper on the night of the royal ball, she realises that there is more to the seemingly ordinary object than meets the eye. Searching for its owner, she is led to the palace where the princess sets her on a journey that thrusts her into an unexpected world of magic and illusions. It soon becomes clear that there is a lot more to her mission as she discovers startling secrets about her past and struggles to embrace her destiny.

The Kindle Spindle

I’m finally doing it. After months of deliberation and self-doubt, I’m delving into the world of Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing. I discovered that anyone can self publish their work to be read on a Kindle device (or via a Kindle app on iphones, ipads, Android devices etc) when I was reading a series of writing articles in the Reader’s Digest earlier this year. It took no time to convince myself that I could use this to get my work published but it was months before I started to do any proper research and get the ball in motion. Why? Because I kept thinking it couldn’t be that easy, and it isn’t, but it’s still much easier than I thought it would be. If you want your work to be good, there is no other way round it, hard work needs to be done! Plus there are plenty of online forums and blogs out there that give fantastic advice on what to do to make the process less painful.

I have to admit, I’ve never been so petrified of anything in my life! Putting my work out there for others to judge has never been an easy thing for me. I have to do it everyday in my working life and it hurts when long hours of design work are dismissed with one word because someone just doesn’t get where you’re coming from, but this will be far worse.
