It was quite accidental really. After uploading my book into Createspace umpteen times, fixing format, spell checking and staring at the same errors over and over, I finally pressed the approve button.
Then the message popped up, “Congratulations. You are now published.” Oops! I hadn’t meant for it to be out there so soon.
You see I ‘d decided to present my book at a formal book launch with supportive friends and family, but somehow it made its own way to the Amazon book store. Then within a few days the book was purchased not by one but three customers. I was very nervous as well as excited. Of course, the launch is still being readied.
I just can’t quite believe it, but now I’m a published author.
But a word of warning – go back and check the instructions before you press that approval button.
