Has anyone seen Boba, by the way?

He has moved from Oregon to Florida....and has started a new job....Maybe we can get him back on.

He should've gotten the e-mail when I sent the mass e-mail out to all registered members. I guess he's just busy. :dontknow: Hopefully he'll show up soon. :)

Brian, forget the publishers. The 21st century way to publish is called "On-Demand Publishing" Go to this website.

http://www.lulu.com/

They will let you upload your book, in the form of a completed PDF document, choose a cover, get a URL for marketing, and even give you a storefront for selling your book, ALL FOR FREE! They get a cut of all sales of you book, just like a publisher would, but the kicker is that they only make the books when they get sold! This allows them to sell as few as 2 or as many as 2,000,000! The days when you had to be able to move 2,000 units just to get noticed are over!


(My book, "Drifting the Dark" by Jonathan St. Ives has sold about 32 copies, and I'm pretty sure that at least nine of those did NOT get bought by my relatives! Woo Hoo!)

Thanks, Saint! :woo:

I think Dave Riggler's Stories is only 45 pages or so printed out (although I've only ever had it in electronic form), but I know there are a few people who would be interested in buying a hard copy. :)

I'd love to own a copy of your book, too, although I'm a Kindle guy almost exclusively now. Is it on Kindle? :)

Tried out Lulu.com. Interesting process, but I don't think economics are on my side for this one. :) The site wants > $16 for the hardcover.

I'm going to have to come up with a lot more text to make it worthwhile, I think.

Ok, that's just the PDF, but I know you can get it on iTunes, so try there for the right format.

I snagged the PDF version. I'll read it on my Kindle Fire. Thanks. :)

Added to the story today. There's kind of a darker element to it, in one sequence. I think it's going to end up being a lot longer than I thought at first.
