We are very nearly ready to publish The Grand Mirage. The Kindle edition should be available sometime next week and the paperback, if all goes well, the following week. Watch this space.
It's been a whirlwind four weeks since I first contacted Jose Ramirez at Pedernales Publishing about going ahead with this project, and it's largely due to him and his partner, Barbara, that everything has been done so quickly -- and so well. Can't say enough good things about them. The cover design is brilliant, execution on the formatting has been flawless, and Jose has been terrifically responsive at every step of the way. Not least, his pdf guides for completing all the other steps in self-publishing -- getting the contract with Lightning Source, buying the ISBNs, getting the Library of Congress Pre-assigned Control Number, and so on -- have made every step relatively easy.
