  2. Read most of it (He says to read it more in depth when the MS is actually print ready) which i will do and I bookmarked it for future reference. He certainly does seem to know what he’s talking about.

    Unfortunately that article like most I’ve found seems to focus heavily on US writers which is understandable and fair enough but I wouldn’t mind seeing stuff that is more relevant to me as an Australian – especially in terms of distribution and getting paid etc.

    I know he said to avoid using “self publishing companies” because they take a huge chunk of royalties among other things but without a US Bank Account (which appears all but impossible these days) I would have to rely on cheques in USD which my research seems to indicate is extremely expensive at least here in Australia – STUPID BANKS! those companies sadly appear to be the only real option.

    I must say part of me is dreading finishing this manuscript because then I will have to actually face all these issues – Maybe it’d be easier to get US citizenship…
