i did it!

woot! yeehar! and other celebratory words, the happy dance is being done i have done it! i have just gone and published my very first ebook and there was no errors which in itself was amazing i did spend like all day formatting though and here peoples i can not recommend highly enough if you wish to publish then go to smash words i did on the wise advice of the moose http://thedepressedmoose.com/2012/08/31/1191/ thank you wise moose person i shall be forever grateful, and before you do anything download their free book styleguides, it is essential reading and its free so do it peoples i swear you wont regret it, i am the worlds worst when it comes to word processing i havent a clue but this book taught me everything from how to format to paragraphs to hyperlinks it took me through step by step and it gives great advice too, there are two other free ebooks as well but this one is essential, i was panicking when it was time to click publish but thanks to this ebook i had no mistakes , i was gobsmacked to use a popular vernacular term 🙂 so peoples go for it go do that publishing thang i did 🙂 now i can go sleep or more likely stay up and write more stories

  4. Congratulations! This is a big milestone. I’ve used amazon.com to create a few books, but I am going to take a look at the e-book formatting suggestions you made. It’s always good to keep learning especially from a moose person! 🙂

    1. hiya lovely friend and yes this company was so much easier than the first one i tried so i heartily recommend and keep thanking the day when moose person became my friend as without the moose i would not be sat here happy right now, so yup everyone should have a moose person friend and everyone should give this a go i havent tried any others so i cant comment on amazon, as of yet i am still basking in the glow of having successfully done it with smashwords so i don’t feel the need to try another just yet, but definitely i shall keep that for the future, i probably should go read there other free book all about marketing but i just shy away from that promoting thing 🙂 thank you for commenting and i hope you have a lovely day xx

  5. Blimey! Well done you 😀

    1. thank you my friend i am still buzzing about it, 🙂 its not much fun being near me right now i kinda only have one conversation:- ‘are you an author ? oh no that must be me then, the author, yup thats right me is an author’ i suggest you avoid me for the rest if the day 🙂 thank you for your comment i hope you have a fab day 🙂 xx did i mention i was an author ?

    1. hi and thank you for your lovely comment 🙂 unfortunately i have no idea how i put a widget thingy om here i am a bit rubbish with technical stuff , i did enjoy reading a few of your posts today i loved your story 🙂 i will get back to it soon as i can, thank you very much for your kind good wishes i appreciate your help and advice, and thank you for becoming my latest friend i hope you have a lovely evening 🙂

      1. Hi Kizzy,

        If you can copy the link where the book is, I’ll see what I can do about helping you get the widget working 🙂

      2. you are very kind and i really appreciate your offer of help but so far when i copy the link it takes you to my dash board now i am rubbish technical but i am guessing it is because part of my dashboard still says pending i had the email saying published and it says two seperate book stores have downloaded the free sample but after that i am stuck i am with smashwords if that helps i am very new to all this nd i havent got a clue what i am doing 🙂 the writing stories bit is easy my head is full of them but the technical bit just makes me dizzy 🙂 i do appreciate your trying to help me though thank you very much 🙂

      3. No worries 🙂 Let’s try this another way. Can you tell me what site I can download it from, and the name of the book. Let me see if I can find it.

        I’m headed out to a meeting with my book team just now. I’ll get back to finding it soon. my email is mirrortroy@gmail.com if you prefer that. Cheers!

      4. thank you so very much you really are so very kind i am blown away by your generosity i shall use your email later i just have to cope with back to school blues this morning i have four kids and they all go back to work today and not one of them is impressed 🙂 i really do appreciate your kindness thank you very much i will email as soon as the house is quiet 🙂 xx

  9. Way to go! Congratulations!

    2. popped my email on me gravatar thingy but please my friend if you’re busy just ignore me! xx
