Another Brick in The Wall... and Thanks to All of You
It's out! As usual, the folks at Amazon are a good deal faster at getting the material online faster than anyone else, and so the Kindle version of Méliès' Notebook and Other Stories, the companion volume to Persephone's Torch, is first out of the gate. But the ePub version should be up at iTunes very soon, and we'll be sure to let you know right here in this space when that happens.
The Nook version? Who knows? Barnes and (Ig)noble (as my friend BC dubbed them) have been having Technical Difficulties (or that is what they tell me) and their machinery is still grinding away on the NOOK version of Torch a month and a half after that book's release -- and so I haven't even bothered to submit the new book to them just yet. I mean, why bother? The good news is, for all you Nook and other readers, the ePub version that's up at iTunes should work on your reader. If it doesn't, let us know and we'll make it right.
Now then -- if you look in the sidebar over there --> and on the CATAOG page, you'll see that there's more Good News (at least from my point of view!) in the pipeline. Take a look-see, and watch this space for more details about Tinsel*Town in the coming weeks!
... and I promise, I promise, the next few posts will be something more / other than just personal announcements like these! I actually have quite a lot to write about, if only I can sit still long enough to do it!
BTW -- we passed over 31,000 hits on the blog recently, with 2,000 of those coming just last month alone. Thank you to everyone who stops by to visit. I don't say it often enough. In a very real way, this blog has helped to save my life. This is not an overstatement. I was in a bad way a couple of years ago when I started this blog, and writing here is what kept me going. It hasn't always been pretty or nice. It's been what I needed. The folks who take time out of their lives to read what I've put down here have given me a gift that I can never repay.
That's my Thanksgiving message for this year.
Best wishes to all --
