Wednesday 24th February 2016 – Mel’s Book

Hi Everyone!

So I don’t know how many people are still actually genuinely following my blog since I started it 10 months ago now.

I am in the process of self publishing my book that I began writing 3 years ago. My biography about what I went through when I was diagnosed with cancer and what life was like after treatment.

It’s something I decided to do after finding out that a metal rod had broken in my leg in 2012 after a leg lengthening procedure. It was the final motivation and kick up the bum I needed to really start writing.

Well since then I have some 130 pages, how many 100’s of thousands of words between editing and re editing.

My challenge now is that I have had no luck with being published through a publishing company. Now what I am doing is self publishing.

I am using the publishing program ‘Bookwright’ and using the online publishing company, Blurb.com

The other challenge is the fact that with self publishing, you need cash up front! And lots of it. Currently I have been quoted around $20 per book, and at the moment by requests stand at 200 + people wanting a copy.

So I have started a Go Fund Me page!-

What I am going to do is every day or every second day for the next couple of weeks is write a post, summarizing each chapter of the book, giving people an idea of what to expect from the book 😉

Will keep you posted!!
