At last I seem to have the time to return to my blog and all those that I love to follow… had computer problems that tended to scare the Kaginkers out of me… specially as my book nears that stage of which I am most frightened.
It has been returned to Anneli, (My wonderful Editor) who has spent so much time and patience (Good-natured tolerance of delay or incompetence) getting my words into a readable state. She is formatting it into the eBook format for me, I’m doing the typesetting for the published version and adding my photos. The eBook will be photo free as they don’t look good on a Kindle, but the printed version will have a few.
here is my book front…
and here are a few photos that will be in the book…
I will be sharing more of the progress as we go along, and I do need to get out with the camera…. enjoy..
How exciting, Rob! Wishing you great success and the best of luck.
Looks great BD. Nearly there.
That’s the best title ever…and so recognizable for us 🙂 We think it’s gonna be fantastic with all your stories and pictures, Bulldog. Pawkisses for a Happy Thursday 🙂 ❤
That looks fantastic Rob, Good to see you!
This is sooooooo exciting Bulldog…and great to see you back 🙂
Looking forward to reading it!
Thanks Kate… now if I can only get it onto a site…
Should be good – looking forward to it!
I wish only the best for you on the book…Love the photos you posted, they are pretty amazing.
Thank you Charlie… I appreciate that…
This is so exciting!
I was so excited but have now walked into a brick wall and have to do more research to get it published…
Looking forward to it Bulldog! Thanks for the preview … that big cat is so gorgeous.
Always nice seeing you in my in box. Thanks for keeping us updated on your shenanigans 😉 Lovely book cover!
This is such exciting news bulldog. You’re almost there! ❤
I was almost there till I discovered Amazon currency converter does not support the SA Rand… now I have to investigate another method to publish…
You’re tenacious bulldog, you’ll figure it out!
Well done – it’s a lot of work getting book together. I’m looking forward to seeing it, Rob! 😀
Thanks Dianne… only trouble now is Amazon, they don’t do a currency conversion to SA Rand… BRICK WALL again, but I’ll climb it…
Sarà sicuramente un libro fantastico!! Le foto che ci hai anticipato sono bellissime e lo saranno tutte le altre che inserirai.
Thanks Pat… still trying to decide how many photos to include in the printed version…
Yay!!!!! Can’t wait for it to come out!
Thanks Mrs P… will be a little longer while I find another route instead of direct to Amazon as they do not support the SA Rand in the currency converter…
No problem…I am a patient person. 😀
It’s going to be a wonderful book, Rob. You tell about a world that most of us will never have the pleasure of experiencing.
Thanks Anneli… sent you an email on the new hiccup I’ve found…
Can’t wait to see a printed version.
Thanks LuAnn, I will keep you posted…
I plan to buy the print version when it is available in the U.S.
Thanks Russ… I will keep you posted…
Way to go, bulldog!
I know it’s a bit frightening, but it’s also terribly exciting to see this dream take shape into a tangible reality. I love the book cover, title and those snaps you are including are spectacular! It’s all good, Rob. Breathe and smile my friend!
Thanks Lorna… I think once it’s out there I’ll feel better. ..
Yes, you will. Then you’ll have to deal with all the accolades and requests for another book! 🙂
Oehoe – kannie wag vir jou boek.
All I can say is Wow. Looking forward to the book.
Good luck with the publication of the book…seems like a lot of work. (Suzanne)
I think the marketing is more work than the writing… the Editing of my english is probably the hardest
Kagingers? LOL Congrats
Good word hey?
Congrats on the progress. Great cover and I love the subtitle.
Love your book cover and title. I won’t be long now, I’m sure. You must be really excited to get it out there. Any idea when it will be published?
The eBook probably next week…. the published version maybe a little longer, struggling to decide which photos to use
Exciting times! Most attractive cover, and it is a pity that Kindle readers will lose out on those striking pictures.
Thanks Col… the photos just don’t look good on a kindle
Getting ever closer to the printing press!
That it is…. thanks
I’m so excited, do, do, do, do do, I just can’t hide it , da, da, da, da, do, do – I know I know I know I like it ! Fantastic Bulldog so excited for you.
Thanks Jan…. can’t wait for the day myself
Yours is closer than mine lol
Oooh, I love elephants :). I can’t wait to read your book Bulldog!!
Thank you…. can’t wait now to get it out there
