Today, I thought I'd share the evolution of my new cover for What's in a Name? which is now available at Smashwords. As an introductory offer, you can get it for 99 cents by using coupon code XC48J. It's also available at the Kindle Store, also for 99 cents, but only for a limited time. I hope you'...

Two years ago, e-books constituted 1% of total book sales, a figure that's now closer to 10%. As electronic media accounts for a larger and larger portion of the book business, consumers are benefiting from lower prices for books, and manufacturers are enjoying massive sales.

One of my fave book blogs - The Millions -  makes the case, not only for digital book readers in this post, but for a run on new e-books on your Kindle, Nook, iPad, etc., on Christmas morning.

I'm very excited and gratified that writing pal and book reviewer David Frauenfelder has chosen to review my e-book, The Blue Bicycle, on his blog, Breakfast With Pandora. That he's chosen to say kind things is gravy, but I'm happy with that, too. My second reason for posting this is to underscore...

Since there's too much to cover in a single post, my 'review' of my nookcolor will be ongoing—especially since I'm still learning. I'm not trying to promote this reader over print books or any other readers; as my earlier post said, there should be choices in book formats, so why not choices in...

(A version of this posting with photos can be found at my page at Blogger/Blogpsot)   You’ll get no argument from me: E-readers and e-books are here to stay. As for me, I’ve yet to buy an e-reader. I’m traditionally a second—or third--generation adapter: Wait until the bugs are worked out,...

There's been a lot of buzz about e-books lately. The Blood Red Pencil Blog is running a series on all aspects of the digital world. The New York Times will be doing best seller lists of e-books. More and more authors are taking their back list titles and offering them digitally. More and more...
