Re: Success!

I should also mention that Laurie Tom (WotF Grand Prize Winner, Vol. 26) and Patty Jansen (WotF vol. 27, aka my year) have also had stories in Beyond Centauri. So they seem to like WotF winners!

Re: Tout your Kindle and E-Publishing!

Not that you *need* gorgeous covers, of course. But I couldn't pass up this chance to have them. I think some types of SF and most Fantasy covers really benefit from custom art. It's easier to do thrillers and romance covers with stock art and a little photo manip, which costs a good deal less (and...

Re: Tout your Kindle and E-Publishing!

And not to ignite the ol' "how should I price my ebooks" debate, but I'd have paid $2.99 for it without hesitating. (It irks me that Amazon takes 2/3 of that buck.) Wow, you're the third person today who has told me about the $2.99 possibility. I really have to debate this. Life is sooo c...

Re: Tout your Kindle and E-Publishing!

I just bought this, and I'm having sent to my son's Kindle as well as my phone. Before I tell the kid it's there, do you think it's too dark/moody or otherwise not appropriate for a 12 yr old? No, not too dark for a 12-year-old. It's a lead in to a young adult novel. The main violent moment happens...

Re: Tout your Kindle and E-Publishing!

Re: Tout your Kindle and E-Publishing!

My first original ebook, the novelette Farewell to Tyrn , is now on sale at Amazon . This is a new story of Ahn-Tarqa, a “sister story” for my 2011 Writers of the Future-winning “An Acolyte of Black Spires.” The cover illustration is by 2011 IotF winner Fred Jordan, who also did the illustration for...
