I decided a new site was needed for my books, so I have built Shiraz Books today, simply (?) by duplicating my existing site. Oh, a little messing with SQL was needed to make everything work.
A few days ago Amazon relented in their argument that I didn’t own the rights to my latest book, Testing Times, and agreed to print the paperback edition (they weren’t, strangely, arguing about the Kindle edition!) . I ordered myself a copy straight away, as well as a bookshelf to hold the books. Testing Times comes in over 600 pages so I guess the shelf has to be put up properly?
