Lodging

Opinion: *Sigh*…such a bittersweet story to make me weak in the knees and sorrowful all at once. I am truly starting to adore reading short stories more and more.

…but MY OH MY is it a wonderful story…

BookExpo America 2016

I remembered to start the Map My Walk app on my iPhone and by the end of the day, I had hoofed over 15 miles at McCormick cruising the aisles of booths:

EAC160513 - BookExpo America Map

It brought back memories of the many trade shows past I have worked & walked and made clear that publishing is, indeed, an industry like all others. The publisher booths were impressive and put into stark relief their David & Goliath relationship with self-publishing authors.

I met Mark Coker at Smashwords, connected with a live person at IngramSpark and got a chance to get face-to-face with groups and companies that service “Independent Publishers.”

The frosting on the cake was meeting Berkeley Breathed:

Night of the Living Dead (Author)

I guess dead men do tell tales: An email from iBooks this weekend announced that the latest book from #1 New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn (R.I.P. 2013) will be released October 6, 2015. Here’s the cover:

Is traditional publishing really dying…or just busy turning bookstores into masoleums?

Smashword & Amazon.com

leave a comment »

I published my first book, My Brother’s Keeper, at Smashwords nearly two years ago.  There was/is supposed to be a distribution deal pending with Amazon, but there’s no there there yet, so I bit the bullet and set up my Amazon Author Page to reach the Kindle market in parallel.

I do not know what the issues are, but this is in no way a slam on Smashwords.  Their publishing system and people have been fantastic and I am extremely grateful to Mark Coker and his team for enabling my STD (Story Telling Disorder).
