Wearing my Publisher's Hat Today

Now that I have emerged from both Christmas and a school term of middle class income and 16 hour days, into a week of little paid work, and ahead a term of less work [and less money, alas], I am going full speed ahead writing and self publishing. Today I am going over the formatting of An Apple a Day with the proverbial fine toothed comb.  First I will produce a pdf to put up on as a POD edition.  Once that is done, I will try my hand at Smashwords.  I just received advice on a Linked In group that I should try converting my Pages file to ePub and submitting that to Smashwords, thereby avoiding their frightening Meatgrinder program.

My goal is to have Apple a Day published in this year - so the book will be ready by tomorrow and make that personal deadline.  The Smashwords may not.. but maybe....
