I’ve had that stuck in my head for the past few days, so I had to use it somewhere. 🙂
In twenty-four hours I will be on the beach sitting in front of a bonfire with a beer in one hand and my kindle in the other. Time, it’s time to get a move on!
Phew! Let me tell you, when indie authors talk about how hard it is doing everything yourself, this is the kind of week they are referring to.
Glow is out! Go forth and find out how it all ends. 🙂 Right now, it’s up on Smashwords, Barnes and Noble and Amazon. It will also be on All Romance ebooks soon. And Apple, Kobos, Sony…all of those places! I’m just waiting for Smashwords to have free ISBN’s again.
All of my books will also be for sale as e-books at Powell’s Books in the near future. Probably no one outside of Portland cares about this, but, for me, having my books at Powell’s is kind of a dream. If you ever get a chance to physically visit Powell’s City of Books, you’ll know what I’m talking about. A book nerd could straight get lost in there for days.
I took a little trip over to my local Powell’s yesterday to find out how one goes about getting their books on Powell’s site. I got attacked by black birds on the way into the store, which was a first! Anyways, turns out it’s easy. All I have to do is go through Google books. I got a little bit of a ‘tude when I asked the cashier about e-books and referred to myself as an author. But I also bought eight used paperbacks, so she can’t blame me for singlehandedly killing their business.
The birds also attacked me on the way out of the store. I used the paperbacks to fend them off.
In other e-book news, Smashwords is having a big ol’ sale. Day of Sacrifice is free with coupon code SSWSF and The Toilet Business is discounted to $1.75 with coupon code SSW50.
Also, here are two new indie reader sites to peruse over the weekend – Breakthrough Bookstore and IndieAuthorRockstar. My books are up on Breakthrough and I’ve submitted Glimpse to be a contender on Indie Author Rock star. Alas, it wasn’t picked for this month, but this is only the first round. Lots of great books were chosen. I have no idea which one I’m going to vote for!
Besides all of the book craziness this week, I also got to sit in on my SIL’s c-section yesterday and help her welcome her new son, Luke. I got to hold him first! It was awesome. He yowled for twenty minutes straight. My SIL and I were like, “Oh crap! I forgot how loud they can be!” Of course, when I went to visit today, he slept the whole time and was a perfect little angel. 🙂
I hope everyone in the States has a great holiday weekend! I have a couple more things planned before I head to the coast. Cleaning my disaster of a house will not be one of them.
I’ve got to help my sister lift her new 300 lb etching press onto a table this evening and then tomorrow, I’m taking my niece to see Monte Carlo. (And, yes, I picked the movie. Finn from Glee is in it, people!)
