If you haven’t yet seen it, do check out the FAQ for the Barnes and Noble/Nook Press satirical attempt to offer self-publishing “services.” David Gaughran has more.
My favorite part is the $399 charge to be told which editing package you should purchase.
My second favorite part is knowing your Barnes and Noble/Nook Press print book will not, under any circumstances, be sold through any Barnes and Noble store — physical or online.
Barnes and Noble has run out of feet of its own to shoot, and is apparently taking volunteers who will pay to be shot.
Sand of Bone is available for Nook through Barnes & Noble.
There’s also a great review by Sherwood Smith at Goodreads. (Cool news about her upcoming release can be found here.)
My favorite thing about the review? She discusses her grimdark limits as a reader and where Sand of Bone falls on that continuum — information so important to readers choosing their story experience.
I want the folks who buy Sand of Bone to be GLAD they did so. I don’t want readers surprised by a book that’s darker than — or not as dark as — their expectation. As I’ve said before, my goal as a publisher is not to sell as many books as possible. It’s to sell as many books as possible to readers who will enjoy them.
And folks have been buying Sand of Bone through Amazon and Smashwords! Hooray and thank you! (And it’s been nice to see Sword and Chant get a little bump as well.) Now all you wonderful Nook readers can get in on the action.
