It was a busy week preparing for the release of THE ROAD AHEAD. This week I signed off on the layout of the book and acquired an ISBN, which is a unique 13-digit identifier that each book is assigned (a different ISBN is assigned to each version, ebook, paper, audio). When I filed for an ISBN, I was told that it could take up to 10 days to be processed. I went into a panic because I might not have books for the launch party. I called up the Library and Archives Canada and explained my dilemma. The very nice woman who answered the phone pulled our my application and processed it in two minutes. She made my day!
Invitations went out for launch party this week and the response has been incredible. Thank you to everyone who has already for your support. If you are planning to attend, please remember to RSVP. The book store needs to have an idea how many staff to available for the evening. If you know of someone who might be interested in attending the launch, pass on the invitation to them.
Next week I need to get back to writing.
