KDP for Christmas and Mike Sanchez

After a bit of thought I've decided to run free promos on all of my titles from 23rd December to 27th December inclusive. This gives me a couple of days either side of Christmas for people to fill up their new Kindles! I'll let you know how I get on.

Exciting news on the bio front - I met Mike Sanchez on Sunday evening and he passed to me a very comprehensive timeline of much of his time in the music industry, including with the Big Town Playboys. Check him out at www.mikesanchez,com. Anyway, his bio (or ghost written autobiograhy) will contain a significant number of pages of photos, and of course large amounts of text, so Createspace is not really appropriate, as it appears to only allow either full colour or black and white interiors. Fortunately there are tons of "publishers" or printers that do really cost effective short run prints, but it will mean a lot more work u front. Mike is 50 in February 2014 and he wants the book out by then - so there is lots to do.

I will keep you posted with progress here.
