Indebted - Pulling The Trigger
I received the proof of Indebted. I'm pulling the trigger and approving it. It will be turned over to Amazon.com so they can build a site for it and in a few days it will be available in paperback. I will also immediately approve the Kindle conversion and the Nook/ iBook conversions too. Kindle takes 2-3 weeks. Smashwords.com will release a Nook and iBook version around the same time (2-3 weeks--you'll find Sony e-reader and other ebook versions as well on Smashwords.com). It will take longer to get it on Barnes and Noble's and Apple's websites. I'll keep you updated.
I've been listening to GROUNDS FOR DIVORCE by ELBOW all week. It reminds me of Brennus...he's not happy about the brand over Evie's heart.
The proof of Indebted came yesterday! I was looking it over and I found one thing wrong: the "about the author" page is not in it. I started laughing because I'm going to approve it anyway. It would take a couple of weeks to fix it and I don't think I can handle it. It's the same "about the author" as in the first two books in the series so WHO CARES! NOT ME! (Somewhere, a traditional publisher is snickering at my lameness.) Get ready because I'm pulling the trigger. Amazon.com should have it up and running in a few days because they are SO NOT LAME...and then...bliss...fini...on to INCENDIARY! Yay :) After it publishes, I will then turn around and pay to have the publisher add the "about the author" to it. Amazon can sell the "first edition" while CreateSpace works on adding the page for the "second edition." It will probably take 2-3 weeks to fix it. What does that mean? It means that there will be a limited first edition of Indebted and you'll be able to tell if you have a first edition because it won't have an "about the author" page. That's my compromise...and who knows, maybe something good will come out of this mistake.
