  • I love your accent. So charming! I do the traditional publisher thing but it took years. So long that self-publishing wasn’t really a thing one did when I first started. So many options for authors today.

      Haha… thanks? It’s so good to have the options. There are pros and cons to both methods of publication 🙂

      Lol thanks. New Zealand is a nice place to live 🙂 There are pros and cons to every path, right?

  • Staple binding! Yes. Love that that will make a child an author. A child of any age. I self-published Murder on Ceres with Amazon. And you’re right, selling the book is an altogether separate issue. I’m visiting from A to Z. Claudia, The Bookwright.

      Thanks Claudia! That would make anyone an author, technically… it’s the selling part that’s harder than the publishing in this day and age!
