Very Belated Update

Ahem. I think it’s about time I brought this site up to date. It’s been two years. *TWO YEARS*! That’s bad, even for me… Still, my stories have just about escaped from hanging in limbo, and I can say that Argent Dreaming is available in ebook format across all the Amazon sites, and at All Romance eBooks.

Also, it is currentArgentDreamingPrintCoverly going through the system at Createspace, ready to be published in paperback format. Watch this space, as they say.

Another title that will shortly be on the same route, is Nettleflower, co-written with Terri Beckett. Once Createspace has done its thing, that, too, will be released in ebook format as well as paperback.

Even further down the paperback line are Sunfire and its sequel, Sunfire And Shadow. They will be done, but not soon…

About Chris Power ~ Author

Chris started creating stories not long after she mastered joined-up writing, somewhat to the bemusement of her parents and her English teachers. But she received plenty of encouragement. Her dad gave her an already old Everest typewriter when she was ten, and it was probably the best gift she'd ever received – until the inventions of the home-computer and the worldwide web. Chris's reading and writing interests range from historical, mystery, and paranormal, to science-fiction and fantasy. She refuses to be pigeon-holed and intends to uphold the long and honourable tradition of the Eccentric Brit to the best of her ability. In her spare time [hah!] she embroiders, quilts and knits. Over the years she has been a stable lad [briefly] in a local racing stable and stud, a part-time and unpaid amateur archaeologist, a civilian clerk at her local police station and a 15th century re-enactor. She lives in a small and ancient city in the south-west of the United Kingdom, sharing her usually chaotic home with an extended family, three dogs, a frilled Australian dragon [lizard] and sundry goldfish.

    Is your experience with createspace good?

    I’ve thought about using them when I decide to offer a print edition, but I hear it’s near impossible formatting the interior of the book.

    I’ve never checked into createspace, but I’m assuming it’s not Impossible. At least I hope not

    • Hi, Awjo, Well, so far it’s okay working with Createspace. Okay rather than great. It is fiddly, but using their formatted template wasn’t too horrendous. What was a bit of a problem [for me because I am not the sharpest tool in the box when it comes to these things] was working out how to extend the chapters beyond their ten, synch the page numbers, etc. I got there in the end, though. The actual uploading was fine. You have to format your master doc to their template’s need – single space, Garamond 11, and .02 paragraph indent, then it’s a matter of copy and paste each individual chapter. Making the cover is trial and error, but again, if I can suss it out, anyone can. All it will cost you is time, until you need that paper galley-proof. Then you pay a few dollars for it, plus the postage to wherever you are in the world. Which in my case cost more than the galley! Give it a try, experimenting can be fun, and Good Luck!
