About me

My favourite book is Catch 22…and thinking about it, I haven’t read it for a while so I must dig it out. I remember reading it for the first time when I was about 16 and laughing out loud in my bedroom so much that my sister had to come down the corridor at home and check that I wasn’t having some kind of mental episode.

As a child, Roald Dahl was always my favourite. I still feel the same mix of fascination and fear when I glance over a copy of The Witches. Quentin Blake’s illustrations are fantastic.

When I was studying law, I was reading so many big fat textbooks and law cases that I didn’t want to even look at a book so I was quite relieved, from a literature point of view, to leave Uni and start a job where I could feel like reading was a relaxing pastime again!

I just want to make you aware that when I received the first proof copy of my new book last week there is a problem with the left hand page printing and I hoped you could make Lightening SOurce aware of it. Mostly it is not a problem with ordinary type but I include a lot of black and white pictures in the book and it show worse on those. It is like a series of vertical scratch marks almost as if something is dragged on the page. Its only the left hand pages and it's about an inch wide. I've never seen the problem before but it looks like a printing fault - almost like you'd get with a photocopier when the toner is running out! If you could make LS aware I'd be grateful as I would hope it is fixed by the next proof copy. Thanks D (more) and won+3

I am trying to find someone to help me with tracking down a book order I placed over a month ago. The anticipated arrival date of the order was March 12th. I sent a message on March 14th inquiring about the status of the order when I did not receive it. A Jessica Barrah from your organization responded on March 20th to inform me that my mailing address did not copy over onto the order correctly. She requested a verification of my address, which I provided the same day. I have not as of today's date received the order or received any further correspondence regarding it from anyone within your organization. Can you please assist me with tracking down this order. Thanks. Shadd Paris (more) and won+3

First...Dear Completely Novel, I have been having difficulties with my book and I need some help. Firstly after getting back a proof copy I found my name printed twice in different directions on the cover - plus some errors in the blurb. I downloaded the version and made changes on February 1st. All much better now. My next problem was discovering unseen errors in the main text. But I don't seem to have any way to change these at all. I've tried everything without success so feeling frustrated with the whole thing. Can you help please? Regards, Ray J Jones (more) and gained+3

I just happened to be browsing on Amazon this morning and I noticed that Amazon have reduced the price of my latest book (The Kids Are Alright) to £4.37 down from th £9.99 I set up as the distribution price when I set up the data last May. Have you any idea why they have done that? Can they do it? Also, whilst writing I just noticed that even though this book has been on sale for almost a year some of the items on the checklist on the "manage the book" page for this book are not checked - e.g approved by distributors? Is that a coincidence or are these two things related? Neither is important as the book is not likely to sell many more as the next one will be out in a couple of months but interested as to the mechanics behind the Amazon price change. Best wishes - and be prepared for lots of hassle once the new book is ready to load in May!!!!!!! (more) and gained+3

Lol. I say that because I can't find lots of blacks here and I know CN welcomes everyone, so I wonder why we are no swarming the site. Anyway, if you will be kind to look at my just published novel (First time author) and maybe leave a review I will be delighted. I am tired of friends saying 'its really good' I want to hear strangers say so. Help! my collection of stories is title WE ARE STILL BREATHING by Dianah Ose Aigiomawu. Thanks a lot (more) and earned+3
