Lulu or Createspace …looks like a job for THUNDERDOME!

Standard

Two print companies enter …

For my last book, I did lose Lulu.  Some of the complaints reader had was the 6 by 9 size.  For the author, it’s a useful size … a biggier size means less pages and that means author costs are lower.  However, readers were put off by the blaringly different size.  It’s also this red flag of INDIE WRITER!!!!  Unfortunately, some people think Indie writer means awful writer.  Not so.  But, we have to do what we can to blend in and show that we can compete.

This time, I’m taking the Createspace path.  And yeah, it’s not an easy one.  Half the time, I have no idea what I’m doing with the formatting or why the document is doing what it’s doing … But it really has low costs, even with a better size book (one that readers are friendlier toward–5.5 x 8.5).  This morning, I finally figured out how to get my internal metadata figured out (yeah, I’m technologically challenged).

On to the cover!  Say a prayer for me.

Looking for Book Reviews

Standard

One of the hardest thing about selling a new book is getting the word out there.  Reviews in one way to do that.  Any good lists out there for reviews?

A CALL-OUT TO INDIE WRITERS …

All right … the book is published.  You took that leap off the cliff … so what now?  Yeah, your friends have bought copies, but how are you getting the word out there so that people that don’t know you will pick up copies?

Lot’s Mountain

Standard

Magic isn’t gone, only hidden.

For countless centuries monsters, men, and things in between have fought hidden battles over the fate of magic … in a small rural town in Virginia. Now their skirmishes threaten to explode into open war, with the entire world held in the balance.

Dylan Caid, a troubled misfit whose secret just might hold the key to victory, finds himself thrust into the center of this ancient conflict. With both sides urging him to join with them and threatening death or worse should he not, Dylan must seek out an ancient force that even monsters fear.
