Happy President's Day

Happy President's Day to all.  Okay, so it may not be President's Day when you read this or even in the country you are currently residing but 20 February 2012 is President's Day (celebrated) in the United States of America. 

In the Prologue of Call Sign: Wrecking Crew (Storm Warning)  the very first paragraph is devoted to our fictionalized President, who was elected in 2012.  In later chapters, there are quotes from many of the Founding Fathers, especially Presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.  

Least we forget, without the fortitude and forethought of our Founding Fathers we may not have the rights that we have today.  I'm sure many of my author friends might agree that the First Amendment, in particular, Freedom of Speech is a significant one.  Just as I'm sure the members of the "Wrecking Crew" would say that the Second Amendment was more important.  What ever way you'd like to look at it, please join me and say thanks Founding Fathers and Mothers for your bravery and perseverance.

Lovely Lessons Being Learned

Welcome to our newest followers. It's been almost a year since I started this blog. I hope that my sharing the lessons that we've learned has helped fellow authors in some small yet meaningful way and that it will continue to do so into the future.

We recently learned that there is a difference in types of 'paperback' books.  Softcover books come in Mass or Trade, with Mass being the smaller more popular or 'mass market' books.  Trade Softcover is the one that is larger and usually has better quality paper. Our book, Call Sign: Wrecking Crew (Storm Warning) is considered a Trade Softcover.  To learn more of the specifics about our book, please visit our pages on Amazon and Create Space

As many of you know, our book went to Smashwords. What I didn't know until recently, was that our book can be viewed on Kobo and Sony's websites.  Of course, I knew that our book was on the premium catalog but it never occurred to me to check the actual websites until I was filling out a submission form for ISelfPub

I'm actually grateful that a couple author friends shared their link to ISelfPub and encouraged us to give this site a try.  The fruit of all that loving labor will be shown on Monday 13 Feb 2012 for about 24 hours. Our book will be among several featured on the front page that day. So please be kind enough to look for our book and if you happen to find, Siggy Buckley's book, on there as well, please give it a shout out as well. 

I really think it behooves all Independent Authors to help one another out whenever and however possible. 

Until next time, have a great one!
