For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
This is my second post tonight; just feel like posting. Give me five minutes - my six year old wants me to read him a bedtime story - glad he likes reading and books - by the way, I'm in Australia, and it's 8.28pm here as I type this, so please don't think I keep my kids up to ungodly hours.
