PRINT BOOKS HAVE VOLUME – AND FRONTS AND BACKS
The print edition is up. Links below, if you were waiting for it.
‘Achieved ignition’ is my little joke. Hard to set ebooks on fire. Though I hope if you get one, you will read it first. Passing print books on to other people is also a good way of getting them off your shelves if you don’t want them any more.
But don’t lend them. The books I lend never come back.
I’ve finally learned not to lend them

Looks like a book, doesn’t it?
You store these ideas in your bookmarks because they are neat – and eventually, you get to the place where you USE them.
IF you remember that you have them. (I need to go through that whole bookmarks list labeled ‘EBOOK,’ which is where I’ve been storing these things, some literally for years, in anticipation of this day.)
Thanks, Boxshot. This time it was very quick to go into Pixelmator, cut out the appropriate images from the full cover (anyone with sharp eyes will notice it’s MY original version – CreateSpace hasn’t put the bar code on the back cover yet), save them as separate images (back, front, spine) trimmed of all excess blank space (Trim Canvas command – but don’t save!). My first attempt looked very odd as a book because I forgot to trim the pixels down to just the piece I needed – the spine image was a tiny sliver down the ‘book’ spine.
Pride’s Children: PURGATORY (Book 1 of the Trilogy) is in PRINT
Amazon kindly links everything up for you on the product page, but here are a couple of the links for your convenience:
Amazon print product page
Amazon.UK product page
Amazon.MEX product page (Hola, familia)
Amazon ebook product page
In this day and age of ebooks, I don’t expect to sell as many in paper (okay, except maybe to myself), but I’m glad to have that publishing milestone checked off the list. I do have lovely people who have been waiting for the print edition.
AMAZON HAD A SALE COUPON ON MY PAGE, VALID UNTIL DEC. 14.
Hope it is available to customers – I don’t control it. But it IS a limited time coupon if it’s there.
MATCHBOOK: Amazon sells you an inexpensive ebook of Pride’s Children
…if you buy the print edition. I’ve kept that at the 0.99 setting for now.
Check out their conditions – I don’t know what you can and cannot do with the ebook.
Still having fun. Over to you.
Wonderful! I ordered my paper edition the instant it went live, so my copy arrives this Wednesday. I’m excited! 😀

… in three … 2 … 1 … liftoff! 😀
From your mouth to God’s ear.
It is going to be a very slow liftoff – a long book doesn’t get recommended until people finish it and tell their friends (if they liked it). Every new author faces the same mountain.
I’ve done my launch. There are some promotional efforts about to start (watch this space very soon). And that is it – I’m going back to writing. The time will just have to pass, and I trust that there will be progress eventually.
But I was really looking forward to the 3D book images. I think that’s the last of the toys I had bookmarked.
I’m not particularly suited to marketing – introvert here – so I’ll go back to what I do best: writing. Conventional wisdom agrees: write the next book.
There is nothing more pathetic than an author flogging the same book over and over instead of writing more. I shall try to avoid that fate. Besides, if you hook a reader, they have nowhere to go if you don’t have more. Of course with me it may be years before Book 2 is ready, but it STILL isn’t going to write itself.
