Blog & Site Updates

2.7.18 As part of our outreach to other markets, I am trying to establish a vendor account with Barnes & Noble to post our ebooks there. I had been a member of PubIt, which turned into Nook Press, but since NP was not forthcoming with sales I closed the account. B&N rebranded the site into Barnes & Noble Press. Now, thanks to a glitch in the vendor account form, I cannot proceed without activation, and that depends on tax and banking information which must match (according to them). I tried 6 times, and each time the form rejected the same information I have been using for over 40 years. I have sent them an email explaining the problem and hopefully they will fix it. In the meantime, I am reconfiguring the files according to their specs (which are radically different from KDP) but am not putting them up until the account is verified.
     I have put Principles of Publishing In The Digital Age 3rd Edition to bed in preparation to publish the 4th edition, which will be updated with new information and more aids to publishing. I anticipate it will be published in March. Swords of The Dragon's Blood is still in the works, and other books will be published later in the Spring and Fall of 2018 as I finish them. More news later. ♦

1.25.18 This is the first post for 2018. I have been reconfiguring the book catalog so that the catalog numbers are simpler. Before, I was assigning numbers based on the year, the order of a book by series or category, and the number of the book itself based on its original publication date. Now, all book catalog numbers are based on the order of publication and that's it. It's easier to keep track of and I don't expect to publish a thousand books in my lifetime. The art prints are in the reassignment process, so I will post them on the site later.
     I am also republishing all of the books with different page counts and prices. This year I have decided to drop the 99 cents appended to each price and offer the book with an integer price. It is worth the effort because, now that I am selling exclusively online, a penny's difference does not matter.
     I hope you had a lovely holiday season, and I look forward to doing business with you in this more positive new year. ♦
