    Novel Edits

    Sorry for the quietness but I’m busy with Empire Avenue and novel edits… I’m kicking this novel out of my house by the end of the month no matter what. As well I’ve been playing around with a secret project (not writing or Empire Avenue related). And no I’m not telling you about it yet. It’s a secret after all. I’ve also put a link to an Amazon store down somewhere on the bottom of this webpage, I’m going to try and keep it updated with my Kindle reprints and with any stories and novels people I know have available. If you want me to add your work to the…

    The Monastery at AnthologyBuilder

    I’ve been talking a lot about my Kindle and Smashwords reprints but I also have many of my story reprints available as part of AnthologyBuilder.

    eBook Software

    I’ve been reading eBooks for years now. Reading a recent post by Brad Torgersen on his blog where he discusses print books versus eBooks, got me thinking. While I agree with Brad on some points (i.e., that there will be print books for many years to come) I find eBook reading a lot more convenient than reading print books and I seldom buy print titles anymore. I started reading eBooks on a Palm IIIxe, then moved to my Dell Axim, and now I read on my iPod Touch.

    Story available on the Kindle

    While I don’t have a dedicated ebook reading device like the Sony reader or the Kindle I have been reading eBooks and stories on my Ipod Touch for almost a year now. I have all the various bookstore apps on it including Stanza, eReader and Kindle. But what I hadn’t thought about, ever, and I should have probably, was republishing my previously printed stories this way. I had looked into Fictionwise to see if they’d take my story reprints but I’m not established enough to qualify. After reading a post by Michael Stackpole where he was talking about updating his stories on the Kindle I checked into it. Now I…
