ideas4writers publications update

Lots of you are asking when The Date-A-Base Book 2015 will be published.

The bad news is we just don’t know – there’s still a huge amount of work left to do on it, even though we’ve been working on it for 7 months and these books usually only take 3 months to produce. This is mainly due to the worsening accuracy of information available online, which is making cross-checking each entry much harder and more time-consuming, since formerly trusted sources can no longer be trusted.

The good news is that the first half (January to June) is just about done, so we’re going to do what we did with the 2013 edition and split it into two parts. Part 1 should be available (in PDF format) before the end of February – and hopefully by the end of next week.

Rather than sell the two parts separately (which got a bit complicated last time), we’re going to sell part 1 for the usual price (£8.99) and then send the full version (when it’s ready) free of charge to everyone who buys part 1.

While you’re waiting, how about entering a short story competition? Our book How to Win Short Story Competitions is on sale this month for just 99p for the PDF edition or 77p for the Kindle edition.

(You can read Kindle books on any PC, Mac, smartphone or tablet – no Kindle device required. There’s a link to the free Kindle app on every Kindle book page on Amazon’s website.)

    Could we get a possible eta on when part 2 will drop? I have a big deadline in late march, are you thinking it will be ready by mid march time? if its much later part 2 won’t be much use to me at all. Thanks for the hard word and keeping us updated.

    Thanks Dave. When will Part 1 be available? I have a deadline on March 27 for proposals for 2015 so would like to get my hands on as much as I can asap. Cheers

    Part 1 should be available within the next 24 hours – I’m just doing the final proofread.
