Book news

That's the lovely Brooke on the cover. So I have some good news, and I have some bad news. The good news is that I got my sample copy back from Blurb and it looks really good. It's not the same quality as the prints, of course, but very nice.

The bad news is that I had to make a couple of little adjustments. Out of an abundance of caution I'm ordering another sample copy, and won't order in bulk until I've received it. So by the time I get any kind of decent number of copies to sell it's probably going to be early April.

But back to the good news - I know now that I know enough to go with Blurb and what the cost will be. So I can take pre-orders now, and once I get that test copy I can turn on direct sales with Blurb (which has some annoying features - their author payment setup STINKS compared to Lulu). I'd be doing pre-orders anyway since I'm going to start with a decent number of copies and that helps with the up front cost and also gives me a better idea how many to order.

So all that being said, if you would like a pre-order go to the books page and there's a link for the US or international. The books are $39.95 plus shipping (varies by location). Such a deal!
