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!
