Website Done! I Think…

Posted on

Well, at last, all the major online bookstores — the ones I’m familiar with anyway — are listing Lifeliner! Whoo hoo!! Getting the badges from Amazon was an easy, painless process. The badges are huge, but you can customize them to some degree. Chapters.Indigo was a bit more complicated — no customization available, so I […]

Chapters.Indigo Has Listed Me!

Posted on

Yay! I’m finally listed on the Chapters.Indigo website! That means that people can now order directly from iUniverse through their online store too, if they so wish. Oh happy day! Of course, this now means, time to join the Chapters community, the one all us Torontonians have been inundated with ads for on the subway.

Whoo Hoo! The Books Arrived!!

Posted on

Today, at 6:17 pm I heard a bang on the door. It couldn’t be, could it? I raced to the door, and holy cow, there was the UPS man! I didn’t expect UPS to be delivering this late, but I am so not complaining. Apparently, they’re short staffed and work crazy hours until Christmas, but […]

I’m on Amazon!

Posted on

Holy cow, I’m on Amazon! And I haven’t even seen my own copies yet. I’m supposed to keep it all hush-hush — yeah, right, like that’s working out well — until I see my own copies to ensure there are no printer errors. But now Amazon.com, bless them, has put three copies up for sale […]

Joined Facebook

Now, why did I log in to WordPress in the first place? Oh yeah, it was to add my blog to my Facebook profile. The universe has been poking, prodding, nudging me to join Facebook for quite some time now, and finally last week it pushed me. Join already! it seemed to say in exasperation. […]

Upgrading WordPress

Posted on

Ack! Never upgrade WordPress just because as soon as you log in, it tells you to “please upgrade now.” That doesn’t mean now now! Especially if you’ve just told a bunch of people about your brand spanking new website. Because as soon as you start upgrading, you’ll see all the plugins that need upgrading and […]

Moving On

Posted on

A momentous day today for me. One process ended today, and that end marked the beginning of a new trail for me. Today my PSA, Michael Fiedler, congratulated me on the end of the production process and then said good-bye. The end of the printer setup of Lifeliner is the end of his time guiding […]

Marketing Toolkit Arrives

Posted on

I received the Marketing Toolkit today from iUniverse. It’s a cornucopia of pre-designed postcards, bookmarks, posters, buttons…the list goes on! I’m overwhelmed!! It comes with a large instruction booklet for how to use the materials and to have them printed professionally, each on a certain kind of paper. This is familiar territory to me as […]

The Final Stage

Posted on

What a day! From the high of receiving my final proofs to the low of seeing two stupid errors to the relief of my PSA saying send the changes in and we’ll fix them. The spelling of the award Judy received really challenges my brain. I have to check the spelling every single time I […]
