Hello! It’s been a busy week or so, so I haven’t had much time to sit down and write out my thoughts like I’d like to. So today is a post of random updates:
A Lover and its Ghosts is now available on Amazon.com. This is kind of awesome, mostly because HOLY CRAP I HAVE SOMETHING PUBLISHED AT THE BIGGEST BOOK STORE IN THE WORLD. Also because now people who don’t know how to/want to transfer files to their e-readers after download from Smashwords can just pay $.99 for the convenience of whispernet delivery ;D So, if you’ve had the chance to read A Lover and its Ghosts and you’d like to leave a review, I would be ever so grateful for your feedback!
I’ve basically been using this short story as a test-run publication so that when I release The Poppet and the Lune in May I can do it without any hitches (hopefully). I’ve only had a few so far with the short, mostly things I forgot to put in the extraneous pages like author’s notes, etc. Also, I now know it takes about 2 weeks to approved for the Premium Distribution catalog on Smashwords, and at least 48 hours for your book to appear on Amazon when you publish through Kindle Direct. Now I need to get the short on PubIt!, the Barnes and Nobles publishing site.
In the weeks to come, there should be a lot more activity on here. I’m going to be thinking of a contest to win a print copy of The Poppet and the Lune, so keep an eye out for that. Also, I’ve got some old sketches from my hand-written first draft that I’ll be posting here, along with a bit of background about the story and how it was written. Hopefully, by Monday I’ll also have a book trailer up : )
Happy Thursday one and all!
