A few of the entrepreneur-authors I follow said there was no need to register my imprint name with the “authorities”. I considered that for about three seconds. It cost $300 to register the name but at least for the next three years I can build that business and know that someone isn’t going to register the name out from under me. I’m not saying that because I think it’s the best business name in the known universe but because soooo many writers are now registered businesses. As I detailed a few days ago, finding a publisher name was really hard because there are just so many people out there, taking the advice to register in imprint.

Apparently we do this for various reasons…not the least of which is looking more professional. If we don’t have an imprint name, the barcode on the back of the book says ‘Independently Published’ which is fine with me, but apprarently a bit of a red flag to some readers. It’s funny because I’ve recently read two traditionally published novel with typos, copy edit issues and content/research related issues so judging a book by it’s publisher is probably a bit last year.

So soon you’ll see a new tab at the top of the page that says Time Step Press and I’ll have a new logo and all that jazz for the page. When I finally work out all the stuff that I need for IngramSpark, I’ll have the print novel available and begin my world domination!

I’m off to a fancy-dress party tonight. Those who know me well will know that I absolutely hate fancy-dress but I really like my friend whose party it is, so we must do what we must do! More to the point I went shopping today. On a Saturday. I tricked my brain into going to the shops by arranging to meet my neice for coffee then I rampaged around. I get so manic at the shops but costumes were required. I even managed to avoid the siren call of the book shop!

my idea of shopping on a weekend…

Happy Saturday night, peeps ❤ Party On, Wayne!
