Just Get It Out There – The Book

At the first meeting of our writing group last year we discussed publishing an e-book of our stories and poetry. We thought it was a good idea to put some of our work together to showcase what we can do.

The time is nearly upon us.

Just get it out there is our anthology and has short stories, flash fiction and poetry. Christie Adams (photography) and Craig Hallam (photo-shopping) designed the cover, which is exclusively revealed below. Just Get It Out There

I am currently formatting the file ready for publishing on Smashwords.

The Smashwords Style Guide is easy to follow and takes you step by step through what you need to do to make sure the book will look its best when published.

There are a lot of formatting issues to consider and depending on how long your book is this can take some time. Our book is not too long, but I decided to go nuclear where you purge all hidden corruption by copying & pasting into Windows Notepad and then back into a new Word .doc to start afresh.

The Style Guide tells you each area to consider and check to make so you have done things properly. Time will tell whether I’ve done everything right. I’m not quite there yet, I have a few final parts to check.

Once everything has gone through we will post details on how to get hold of your FREE copy of Just Get It Out There.

Thanks for reading this post and we hope you come back to download the book.

    Love the name of your anthology..so true! As writers we don’t ‘Get it out there’ as often as we should!

    Can’t wait to read your writing…
