A whole new world…

Do you hear that? It’s the sound of the publishing industry being turned on its head and the coins falling out of its pants pockets.
     A fellow author told me I should join the Kindleboards community, now that 3/17 is available in that format. I’ve been on there a week and learned so much already about how ePublishing and self-publishing are changing the book game forever.
     Authors used to be content to write in drafty garrets, separated from the rest of the world. Not so, anymore! Now we must write, design, edit, market, be social media literate and fret about book sale rating fluctuations. That’s cut out a whole lotta middlemen in the publishing industry. If I were them, I’d start taking a few courses to prepare myself for a new career.
     All of this is happening crazy-fast. And if you want to join the game, you better be adaptable. You wonder, after digital books, what could be next? [Cue: theme song from 2001: a Space Odyssey]

Just in time for the ‘high holy days’…

I’m thrilled to announce that the Kindle version of 3/17 has just been published. You can download it here for $9.99 at Amazon’s Kindle store. The download will work on Kindle as well as PC, iPad, iPhone, BlackBerry and Android platforms.

Coming soon … the Kindle version

I’ve been prepping the original manuscript today for the digital edition. A bit of tweaking here and there, reformatting and resizing the cover and I should have the Kindle edition uploaded by the end of the weekend. Fingers crossed!
