Amazon set to launch services in India next year

Amazon, for all its shortcomings has been very good to me. This year with Amazon, my novels in both the UK and here in the USA have taken off. It happened in February and March. Especially Into the Basement, it has shot to number 1, in kindle>graphic novels>horror in both countries. We all know someone if not ourselves that own an ebook reader. I use an ipad and access books through the Kindle app and…

Formatting your ms for Kindle upload

Yes, you get some formatting errors when you upload your usual word processing doc to Kindle Direct Publishing. And yes, there’s a free and relatively easy way around this problem. I’m preparing a short how-to manual, teaching self-pubbing authors how to format their work for a seamless upload without formatting errors, in four steps. But honestly, the most important part of the process is detailed in the instructions listed on my… Continue

 Please excuse the double entendre, but we couldn't help it. These kinds of things don't come around every day you know. The fact that it's been SNOWING off and on here in Southern Oregon the last couple of days, and that a week ago today on April Fool's Day we got a surprise phone call from author Miranda Phillips Walker asking if she could come back home. Here's the backstory: Krill Press was founded in the fall of 2008 and our first title, "Absinthe Of Malice" by…

Visit the Book Review Block Party and Enter for an Amazon Gift Card

Instead of doing a full-fledged blog tour, I coordinated something a little bit different for my books -  a Book Review Block Party. I contacted numerous book bloggers about publishing their reviews during a certain time-frame, and the end result was 21 book reviews being published across the Internet in one week for my mystery novels Twenty-Five Years Ago Today and Sink or Swim. You can read snippets of the reviews and more about the "book review tour" here.…

The End of the Book Signing Battle...The End of the Big Book Store!

The battle is over, the bombs dropped, the shots fired, the smoke cleared, the dead lay scattered across the battlefield, the wounded picked up and carted out to the mobile hospitals. Me, I sit with my back up against the trench, face hot and dirty from the soil that sticks to my sweat, my breath beginning to even out, lit cigarette danging from trembling fingers.

Yesterday was the day I wanted to see if I could sell more books online than I could at a traditional signing. As you…

More on e-publishing--how many of you own a reading device?

I wrote about some of the positives about e-publishing yesterday. Here are some of the negatives. To start, there is the small percentage of people who actually own a reading device. The number is growing rapidly, but it's still small. 5 or 10 years from now this will be much less of an issue. Reaching those people can be difficult, particularly for fiction. Sites like this one can help, because at least you have a target audience. But how many of you own reading devices?

The ease of…

Why I love clogged Arab toilets better than Amazon Kindles

As I journey around the Middle East researching my Palestinian crime novels, I love to come upon a stinking squatting-toilet, its evacuation hole bubbling with dark, sinister turds and the air strong with the scent of barely digested, unhygienically prepared lamb kebab. I adore such a khazi on sight, because no one cleaned it up for me or tried to create an illusion that it was just like a toilet in Manhattan or Munich or my mother’s house.

That toilet is…

Another Precinct Heard From

This topic had, mercifully, run its course, but this column was sent to me by a friend who knew I was interested in publishing and thought I might find it interesting. It's a lot the same of what we've read on the Macmillan-Amazon controversy, with a couple of things I hadn't known and hadn't seen elsewhere.

The end conclusion is familiar. Anyone who things author came out ahead here also thinks, in the auhtor's words, "expensive milk is a victory for… Continue
