This week’s blog focuses on my book. It is a little insight into what the book is about: For your copy, visit Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08RP6GQ2K
With too much time on my hands when working in Tunisia (2019), I wrote my 1st book. Or my 1st attempt should I say. This was 84,000 words and took me around 6 weeks.
I soon realised it was very poor. After writing my blog for another 12 months, I felt ready to give it another go.
Using some of the material from the 1st attempt, my 2nd attempt was reduced to 55,000 words. All I can guarantee is it is an improvement. This took another 4 weeks. Then another 4 weeks of working with an editor I found on Upwork – Eluned Murphy (highly recommended).
I was unable to go down the traditional publishing route, so I have decided to go down the self-publishing route. This is a risk and has cost almost £2000.
Like the DUFFMONEY blog, the book is designed to raise financial awareness.
I have uploaded the book onto Amazon (Kindle) and am getting kbook promotions to market it in mid-January: https://www.kbookpromotions.com/
