Dishwasher series

More new eBooks now available: Dishwasher series, Toothpick Fairy

For those interested in checking out some of my books, eBooks are now available for my novels The Toothpick Fairy, and the entire Dishwasher series: Dishwasher on Uranus, Dishwasher on Mars, and Dishwasher on Venus. You can find these available for instant download on the Lulu website here. Eventually, these titles should propagate to multiple eBook formats and platforms, including Kindle, Nook, and Apple’s iBook. So if you prefer those formats/devices, then keep a look out for them. The list price is $3.99. I hope that’s not too high, but these other vendors take a huge cut, and I don’t seem to be able to set a lower price on Lulu, where my royalty rate is higher. In any case, this price is at least one third to one fourth the cost of the print copies.

I learned a few things about eBooks while I was formatting my titles. It surprised me that so little formatting is allowed: only three heading styles and a few fonts. Also, the text is not justified, an arrangement that forms a nice rectangular column in a print publication and which is much easier to read. Since I generally put much effort into the design and font selection for my print titles, it’s a little sad that the eBooks can’t reflect that. So if you want books with fonts and design, then hard copies is the way to go!

6 books published in 2015

2015booksThis year I published six new books. OK, most of them were written long before, old manuscripts I’ve been sitting on for a while. Last year was focused on editing and revising Computing Angels and The Toothpick Fairy. The three Egyptian fantasies were written many years ago, and all are fairly short texts. Heta’s Book collects several shorter pieces, and The Revenge of the Rats Hand and Breasts in Darkness, My Back to the Light are fairly short novels. Dishwasher on Venus was written in 2014, in Sierra Vista, AZ; it’s a short novel, but I think it’s the best so far in the Dishwasher series that started with Dishwasher on Uranus and continues with Dishwasher on Mars. As with all my other books, these are available via Lulu.com, Barnes and Noble.com, and Amazon.
