So you know how I'm always right on top of stuff? And got home three weeks ago... yeah, that.
I FINALLY stole my daughter's memory card and downloaded some pics from our vacation...
|Thing 1 in another direction|
|Pretty windy that day...|
Then we went on to the Black Hills and drove through an animal safari thing...
|Caribou, I believe...|
Then we drove west into Wyoming which was initially unimpressive, but MAN, do I wish pictures could better capture Bighorn Pass... This tunnel is making my Endangered series (because when I blow up the tunnel nobody can get in and out of that part of Wyoming in the winter *cough*)
And finally YELLOWSTONE!!!
|Burbling (stinky) geyser|
|I dub this 'the pretty one' (love that blue!)|
|And of course, Old Faithful.|
And then there are these things...
I had a reader request (among a few other things) bookplates. Are these something the publisher normally GIVES authors? Just not mass paperback type authors? I'm not even sure what they ARE... Has anyone every just GOTTEN them for promo? Has anyone had them made? Worth the expense? Is this a common request?
Kindle Direct Publishing Select
So y'all know I'm self publishing in serial, yeah? And my PLAN is to publish serially, but then bundle and have them also available as what will effectively be a trilogy of normal-length books...
So there is this formatting thing to learn, and all the sales venues want different stuff... so I am TOYING with doing the initial release ONLY on Kindle, whereby for 90 days there is only them... allows me to have that first free for a total of 5 days (which I will do as I release each of the others) and then by the time I have 4 out and am ready for that first bundle, I can pull it OFF the select and learn all the other formatting..
But I'm not sure. I don't want to exclude Nook, iBook, or other readers... And I think Kobo allows me to PERMANENTLY have that first one free (which is what I'd like—Amazon price matches, so it would be free there, too)
What do you guys think? Worth learning all the extra stuff to keep the extra control? Or is that KDPS enough easier that I should go for it?
