Things I have learned

One of the good things about this self publishing lark is how much you learn in the process.

Did you know that you have to purchase ISBNs in batches of ten? (Not good if you only have one book in mind.)

Or that people still use fax machines?

There’s a  quote from an American TV series in my novel, and yesterday I rang up the production company in Los Angeles to ask for a name to whom I could send my request for permission to quote it. Guess what? They don’t accept email requests. They told me I had to fax it. Why do you suppose that is? I have no idea, but I have no choice. I’m on the hunt for someone with a fax machine who is also discreet.
