New Book--OVER EXPOSURE
Okay, here we go. My adventures in ebook publishing begin.
I've been writing and publishing noirish short stories for years. I'm not a prolific short story writer, but I do enjoy the process very much. I decided to test the ebook publishing waters with a collection of seven stories, including "The Catch" which won an Edgar Award for short stories a few years ago.
So maybe for some of my hungry fans, this book will hold you over till November when DEAD LAST comes out.
More on DEAD LAST later. (It's a Thorn novel.)
But I wanted to start with a quick blog post about OVER EXPOSURE which I'm selling through Amazon for 2.99. I might be raising that price soon, but for the time being, I wanted to set the price as low as possible to see what kind of response I can get.
I'm also planning on putting my four books of poetry up soon.
It struck me lately that ebook publishing actually insures that these books which are out of print and very hard to find will have a longer life than they would have had in the old print format. Strange to think that cyberspace is better at preserving literary work than the ink and paper format we've always know.
I'm also the proud owner of an iPad 2 and will be reviewing my experiences with it as the weeks go on.
Another piece of news! I'm going to be with St. Martin's Press for at least another two books. I'll be getting to work on the new Thorn as soon as I finish copy-editing the manuscript for DEAD LAST.
Pretty exciting time.
