I mean "pissed off," that is, "annoyed." Imagine my surprise to read that my British copy editor assumed that my character was "tipsy."

"While we first saw the Kindle 2 months ago in a leak, there's been another nagging rumor, one of a Kindle with a full 8.5"x11" display. And according to DigiTimes, that Kindle still exists.
Sneakily tacked on a post about Amazon's e-ink display manufacturer Prime View… Continue

From the article:
"A struggling Japanese publishing industry was quick to take notice of the growing popularity of keitai shosetsu, especially early works like Yoshi's "Deep Love." Many of the popular cell phone novels have since been turned into paperbacks, and bookstores across Japan now have entire sections devoted to the digital-age literary… Continue

. . . and in Asia. I'm here to write the fourth Poke Rafferty Bangkok thriller, THE ROCKS. And the third, BREATHING WATER, is due to come out this August/September from HarperCollins. I don't usually weigh in on the quality (or lack thereof) of my books, but I have to say that I think BREATHING WATER is the best yet.
And the people at Morrow agree, to the extent that they made up special bound manuscripts and sent them out in advance of the ARCs in the hope of developing quotes from… Continue

At the beginning of February I announced that I'd dedicate the month to questions, since I'm traveling and they're short and fairly easy. It's hard to believe this is the last one, but Monday is March.
So the last question to reflect on is if you were forced to return to an earlier age (let's say at least 100 years ago), what would you choose?
I love certain eras for reading about, but that doesn't mean I'd be comfortable living there. I guess I'd look for something fairly… Continue

We've all heard about the Kindle readers, but I don't hear authors discussing the unique opportunity to put their own work up on Kindle. I uploaded 7 flash fiction stories called "Over In a Flash," created it with a vision of how I wanted it presented, priced it and sent it out to the world.
Now my publisher, Billie Johnson of Oak Tree Press, is putting my novels on Kindle. We discussed it over the phone and she's agreed to offer a service for others who do not want to mess with the… Continue

Recently I thought about sending a novel to a well-known but small publisher. But I forgot to read the entire submissions demands. Much to my surprise I was informed in no uncertain times I could not submit if I had ever been published by a POD publisher.
So the question is this: Why this vehement animosity toward POD authors?

From the article:
"I think there's plenty not to like about the Kindle -- the DRM, the proprietary file format, both imposed on authors and publishers even if they don't want it -- and about Amazon's real audiobook section, Audible (the DRM -- again, imposed on authors and publishers even if they'd prefer not to use it). But if… Continue

I have two books out. Out since September. So, being the typical impatient Alpha-male that I am, I want to know how well they are selling. I found two sites, TitleZ.com and Rankforest.com, which track book sales. Neither have numbers for me.
So I was wondering, anyone else know of a site that might be tracking books? A site that doesn't cost an arm and a leg to be in?
