Reviews and Publicity

Okay, so Hell’s Door Opens has been released. At Amazon, the iBook store, Barnes & Noble,the Reader Store and elsewhere, its evil villains and hard pressed heroes are ready to tell their tale… but how many people know about them? There are many potential readers but how to let them know the book exists? Hell’s Door Opens has generated a number of reviews. We’re glad to see them. On FaceBook its page has gained a number of “likes” – but how should we turn that goodwill into widespread knowledge of the book’s availability? Talking of reviews, here are a few links for those who might want to read them: A Wonderful Other World Creative, Immersing and Compelling Engaging Start At the present time we are relying on...

Gygax Memorial Fund

I was lucky enough to work with the late Gary Gygax. Gary was a real inspiration and a great friend. He was a powerhouse of creative ideas and a role model to any aspiring writer. Gary worked exceptionally hard every day. He put in long hours and routinely put me to shame with his amazing output. Working with Gary was a dream come true.  I’m glad to have an opportunity to raise money for the Gygax Memorial Fund. 10 cents will be donated to the fund for each copy of Hell’s Door Opens Book 1 sold.

His creative vision touched the lives of countless people and inspired gamers, artists, designers, actors,...

The eBook is available to purchase at Amazon right now and is being released through all the other major eBook vendors too.

It has taken quite a while for Bookbaby to resolve this problem and during the past three months we’ve had to keep quiet about the book and hold off publicising its release but now we can start telling potential readers all about it. I intend to write an article about my experiences with BookBaby. On the one hand my dismay when they distributed a faulty...

Book Baby?

Book Baby?

Have you heard of Book Baby? For$99 they offer to make an eBook available for Apple’s iBookstore, Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble NOOK and the Sony Reader. You can check out their website here. In addition to eBook distribution they offer a conversion and cover design service. A 30 day free trial of a web hosting service is available for authors without a website. But how useful is all of this? An author can create accounts with Apple, Amazon, Barnes & Noble etc. and have an eBook available without parting with any money. Perhaps the real advantage lies in just having to submit your manuscript once in electronic format. Book baby will then provide distribution of an eBook to all their digital partners. In addition to the initial $99 payment there is...
