Excited about seeing my e-book soon #buildingpassions

I should be receiving an e-book version of ‘Building Passions’ very soon!

This is exciting for me, a first-time author and self-publisher, as it is one of the key end products that I’m after, following months of writing, editing, image chasing, indexing and project managing of editors and designers.

I’ve also started serious conversations with the company that will print the hard copy for me. Both sides are now clearer on expectations and working to a fixed timeline, linked to the book launch in November (I’m just finalising the venue and timing of that).

Once I am absolutely happy with the e-book I will upload it to retailer websites so everyone can access it by the end of September. Keep an eye out for links on the ‘Building Passions’ website.

I’ve also started planning the next book and am awaiting some interesting material all the way from the Hudson Bay Company Archives held in Winnipeg, Canada – they could only airmail it to me as scanning in PDFs was a step too far. It’s not arrived yet after 10 days but I guess I can only be patient and hope the system hasn’t swallowed up the package between there and the UK.

I've been blogging since 2012 under different guises and on a range of topics mainly linked to education, but more recently focusing on the history of civil engineering and architecture as well as writing more generally. I have written a book on the 19th-century Brunel and Barry families of successful architects and civil engineers who built the Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge, Paddington Station and the Royal Opera House in London and the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol. www.buildingpassions.co.uk
