The e-book for Fairest goes live at 12:01 a.m. pacific time on Eternal Press' website. EP offers five e-book formats: .pdf, .lit (microsoft reader), .pdb (palm), .mobi (works on a kindle), and .epub (which also works on a Nook). It will show up for Kindle at Amazon within 24 hours and then pop up at the various other vendors throughout the following couple of weeks. Vendors put the books up according to their own time schedule, so I can't be more specific. I'll try to keep tabs on this and post updates about it.
A paper version of the book should be available
around the 7th on the EP site. Print is at the usual Amazon, B&N,
and others, but on their schedule. E-books at Amazon, B&N, Kobo,
Blio, Itunes, All Romance/Omnilit, Overdrive/Content Reserve, Zola and
I'm supposed to have a book launch chat on the site on
May 1st. I haven't selected a time slot, but my options are 2 p.m. and 7
p.m. (EST). I'm supposed to invite my friends, family, and fans to chat
with me. If you know me, you know that I'm sitting here thinking,
"These are terrible times. No one I know is going to show up for this
thing, which is just as well since I will spend most of my time there
not chatting but struggling to keep Spawn off my mouse." On top of that,
this launch day is right in the middle of finals. I don't think this
would be so stressful if I didn't have 4 or 5 other important things
pressing on me all at the same time. Oh well.
Keep swimming, right?
