Yes, I’m getting closer to that moment when the stories will be released, everything is now in place except the time to get the stories transferred to word doc, and the account opened up. And then… Given that I’ve got 3 days off in 4 next weekend (Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday), that should be my chance to get it done. Yes, I promise, I will get it done, and I will let you know when…after all, I want sales, so publicity has to be the way to go!
I’ll be honest, it may not be Smashwords that gets first go now, I’ve been led to a site called Draft2Digital, which seems less demanding in its requirements for sending it through to them, seems to have a pretty good delivery pattern, so… I probably will post at Smashwords in time, I’m told they have a better market, ah well… But to get things up and running, D2D might be easier.
Sadly I wont be able to lay my hands on all my fortunes for a while (ha ha, if I sell a dozen combined, I’ll be thrilled) as any payments to me will be subject to 30% tax, as I’m not a US citizen, and dont yet have a Tax Identification Number (TIN), to avoid doing so. Sadly, given that you have to give them passport identification, and I travel, err, a bit, I cant be without my passport for long enough to send it to and from the US. So, if I get time when in Richmond in September, and assuming I can find the tax office there, I’m hoping I can sort it out then. If not, I’ll just keep donating cents in taxes lol!
Oh, and I gave you a clue to the first story a few blogs back, so here is a clue to the second one
Just thinking about it, if there is a niche for time travel stories, I might make my fortune, and keep the IRS happy too!
Oh, and you know I said about not getting my hair cut too short, ah well…its not much longer (if at all) than Louise Brooks wore her hair at the back! Slightly fuller head of hair, and of course blonde, but…its short.
See that, with blonde highlights, and I love to say this, slightly more fringe, and its pretty much my look. No, I dont look that pretty though! Just hope its not too boyishly short, for those who dont look at my chest lol. Will anyone at work even notice? Hmm…
