Way, way back last year, I planned to work to a publication date of 2nd April 2011. Well, that’s come and gone, but May is looking distinctly do-able.
Apparently, using LightningSource ‘print on demand’ is straightforward, and when the final copy is ready it can take less than a week to get copies on the shelves, so to speak. They are pernickety about file formats, but it’s that pre-press quality that makes the process reliable time-wise.
The trade links that Lightning Source has are second to none, and I discovered yesterday that Gate of Tears is now being listed on Amazon. It’s starting to happen.
