I can’t believe I haven’t done this. Since The Prince of Graves went live last week, I haven’t done the “proud father” thing and show them off in all their Nook and Kindle (App) glory. So now I’m addressing that shameful situation. The picture is on the Nook that is no longer being sold (I love that eReader), and my Xoom.
There’s an indescribable pride I get by seeing this, knowing that my writing is now being shared with readers. When I finally get the paperback, I won’t be so remiss.
Excellent, Eric – and congrats. It’s a fantastic moment seeing it “in print” for the first time, eh?
Here’s something even more fantastic. Go to Barnes & Noble to the Nook counter, and LOAD YOUR BOOK onto every one of the Nooks on display. Take a picture that shows the rest of the store in the background, your book on the Nook in the foreground. See? Your work made it into the local bookstore. That’s the story I tell people when they say, “don’t you feel unfulfilled by not having your books available in the bookstore?”
Then leave them there for other shoppers to see…
That is brilliant! I think I need to take a trip to the book store soon. Thanks Steve! For all your help and encouragement.
Check me out – just a few weeks after my first went live:
Congratulations! It looks great. I did just get a Kindle so I’ll be checking it out.
And thank you for that as well! The idea that anyone would consider allowing my story to have a little space on their reader is humbling, and I really mean that. Thank you again. Also, that Kindle is an awesome device.
