I've had poems and short stories and articles published, but this was my first book.
And it seemed so foolproof with no cost to me. Just a few tweaks to my dissertation document and, voila! But...
The publisher has way overpriced it (meiner meinung nach), and so I am sure it will never sell except maybe to a few university libraries.
How awful it is to learn as you go along and not know the right questions to ask before letting your words be published!
Too soon old, too late smart. See what I mean at Amazon.com, title Creating Juicy Tales.
