That’s what I’m currently doing. Or would be if I wasn’t writing this quick blog about how I’m working on someone’s work.
That someone is Stewart Hotston, partner-in-crime with regard to Alternative Realities Publishing, and his work is A Family War, a hard sci-fi novel about which you can find out more by looking at his blog.
The responsibility I’m referring to is that of formatting it for publishing in both paperback (POD) and e-book. It’s a small responsibility, but one which is key to getting his novel out there and published.
Getting this sort of thing right is absolutely key to a book’s success (aside from good writing etc). Quite simply, if a book’s filled with piss-poor formatting errors, is badly laid out, hard to read and therefore a shitty experience, the author is going to be panned and Amazon flooded with numerous one-star reviews. None of which will actually be about the story.
So, for Stewart’s sake, I’m going to do my damnedest to ensure that no-one has any reason to complain.
