#436. Books

Not to be upstaged by Michael Abayomi, I want to reiterate (because as someone noted on his blog, if not here where?) that I've got a new book of short stories available.  The cover looks like this:


It's called, as you can see for yourself, Monorama, and collects a number, as you can read for yourself, of short stories, including a showcase novella called "Leopold's Concentration," as well as an introductory, bewildering "Lost Books of Tomorrow" section of thirty-two shorter works, and then five other stories besides, including "Lost Convoy" and "Quagmire," which ties in with Space Corps, which is the sci-fi universe I'll be writing about in my next book.

Anyway, I also want to remind anyone who might care that I maintain a reader's blog, Hub City, where I write about the books I've been reading.  I'm thinking of using it for some other book-related topics as well, perhaps noting books I don't have yet but foolishly want to add to an already bloated library I have not read 25% of and perhaps even notable efforts from bloggers I follow.  You can find a link there and here and everywhere to my Austen Paradise bookshop, which is my example of one writer's immense contribution to popular culture, and sometimes I'm tempted to justify its existence by writing about it more.  If you like, you can also visit a skeletal Facebook page devoted to it.

Also, for the record, there's a list of links at the right side of this blog explaining some of this on a more regular basis, including covers to all of my books (anthology included), in case you wanted to have a look.

What!? No ebook version??? Nooooooooo!

Dude, you seriously need to start releasing your works in ebook format. It costs nothing, other than time. You can basically do the formatting yourself, after which you fill in the details online, attach the ebook file and book cover, and hit upload. It's that simple.

Tell you what. Send me a copy of the .doc and I'll send back a .mobi. That is, I'll handle the formatting for you. That's how much I want to read this. But I can't read it otherwise since Amazon, for whatever reason, refuses to ship stuff directly to Nigeria. :(

It does have a Kindle version. You can also find Cloak of Shrouded Men in that format, and the Villainy anthology in the format of your choice.

Tony, thanks for the info and the heads up. I agree with Michael eBooks are convenient. That said, some prefer traditional books. Like me. :)

It seems like I inadvertently entered a sort of war over the topic with him. But it's all good.

Oh. I didn't realize it was already available in ebook format. I feel rightly shamed by my own ignorance. And with that shame I shall now go and download a sample on my dedicated ereader. :D

Don't worry about it. There are a small fraction of differences between the e-book and the printed version, owing to the fact that this was the first time I used the CreateSpace service to conclusion. I'll be better next time.
