Tweaking, Tweaking... (And Print Book Now Out for 'St. Grimald')

Okay, I'm still not finding Litsy easy to work with (though I thought I was getting the hang of it), and to be honest, the popular / trending hashtags over there are book-reading parties that pretty much celebrate mostly mainstream, big name, popular books and authors. Even a small niche market like LGBT fiction or LGBT romance gets its fair share of only big name authors enjoying massive pimpage. It's really discouraging and depressing for the rest of us plebeians, gosh darn it.

Anyway, that place also doesn't have instructions on how to delete one's account, and I had to email them for some help. I'll be over at Twitter still, it looks like--indefinitely for now, though my presence there is still pretty low-key.

In other news, I've already set up the print format of The Ghosts of St. Grimald Priory, and it's priced at $9.00. I figure for those who prefer to read print books, you get a head start on the novel, and you can get it through Amazon over here.

And I do apologize for forcing everyone's hand with the print book since Amazon's the only service I can find that does a pretty good and quick job at getting my books available in that format. Eventually I'll be going through Draft2Digital's print program, but while it's still in beta mode, I'm kind of stuck with the dreaded 'Zon. You should be able to source out a copy via Indiebound as well if you prefer.

The book's just been listed, so there's no "see inside" feature yet. All the bells and whistles should be up within a week, though, which will tie in nicely with the release of the e-book.

My relaunched books from my days with a small press still don't have print copies available, but that's because there's never been any demand for it. Unlike books put out by larger mainstream presses, small press print books (and especially self-published ones) tend to attract e-reading audiences instead. Heck, I'm lucky if I see a sale of one (print) unit of my self-published titles. But for those, I'd like to offer that secondary option, at least, and I'll keep an eye on sales trends.
