Publication! Behind the scenes.
As you as most likely aware on other social media platforms, the release of The Very Secret Sex Lives Of Medieval Women was pushed back from July to October, due to Covid 19 making everyone Stay At Home and not go about their usual businesses of printing and distributing books.
I've been fairly lucky that the book is still going ahead, as my publisher tells me some books were cancelled altogether. I believe pre-sales are doing quite well, and enough of you must have ordered ahead to make sure it went ahead; so for that I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
The latest update is that only the e-Book will be full colour, and the paper book with be black and white inside with a colour cover. I'm disappointed, of course, but I'm very aware that a lot of businesses were unable to keep their doors open at all and closed.
Happily, the images I chose should reproduce well. Having worked in the printing industry in my youth, I knew what pictures would not print well in greyscale, and avoided them. Now it's up to the publisher and printer to get the balance right.
Just because I can, once the book is out, I'll post up the images in their full, glorious colour so you get to see them like I do!
