I’ve been up to my eyebrows in tasks this week, what with it being the end of the month and all. Marketing, editing, emails, reviews, printers, distributors… phew. Anyone who thinks publishing is simply uploading a manuscript and pushing a big red button is sorely mistaken… don’t get me wrong, it’s immensely worthwhile, but there’s a lot more work involved than it appears at first glance.

One boring (if you’re not interested in that sort of thing, that is) thing I have to say on the subject of accounting software is that FreeAgent is a brilliant tool and makes life sooo much easier. I do have a referral code so I might add that to a Facebook post at some point if you fancy giving it a go.

Less boringly, small booksellers can now email me to set up new terms, enquire about stock etc – it’s jacqui[at]scorpiusbooks[dot]com. We work closely with our retailers, so it would be great to welcome you aboard!
