Countdown to ebook publication: Day #2

in Fiction Writing

Photo by channah on www.sxc.hu

As I posted yesterday, I am counting down to the publication of my first ebook publication.

The Bad News

I had hired a conversion specialist to get the Roberson Ladies ready for publication across all ebook platforms, but yesterday afternoon I discovered that they have a massive backlog. My options were to wait it out or dive on in.

You know me…


The Good News

After about 15 hours of solid work, I converted the manuscript myself. All versions are awaiting approval and should be available by tomorrow. I will shoot an email out to everyone on my mailing list when they are ready for purchase. If you are not on my mailing list, now is a great time to join. I will be sending out a coupon code for a Smashword download of my book.

Pat on the back time

I’m pretty impressed that not only am I putting some of my fiction out there for public scrutiny, but I am also figuring out how to do all of the technical end by myself. I even did this with my 4-year-old home for summer break! That’s saying a lot for a woman that bugs her website specialist every other day with some random question about what I’m seeing simply typing a blog post in the little text box. (Thanks, Jason, you are awesome at your job!) I feel pretty accomplished right now. Makes me wonder what else I can do that I never gave myself credit enough to try. Hmm…
