Okay, first off: news that is relevant to EVERYONE:
Ebooks have been on the rise for several years now. Kindle brought them to to forefront and now they're all but mainstream. Old school people like me will always buy the book because I like the heft, turning the pages and being able to tell at a glance how much I have left before I'm finished. Plus, I have the gift of destroying any electronic device that gets too close.
I'll stick to books.
But for those of you who are all over the new e-readers, HEAR YE, HEAR YE! Cedar Fort has signed an exclusive contract with Barnes & Noble's new NOOK.
Now, if I were going to buy an e-reader, I would definitely choose the Nook, because the marketing and perks beat Kindle hands down in my mind. All the pre-orders have sold out on the product and the demand is huge.
That is where your book will be sold exclusively. Why exclusively? Because that gives you, the author, a much bigger royalty. And when I say much bigger, I mean MUCH bigger.
So look for your book when Nook starts hitting the street!
Second, I promised to update you all as to which books made it into Books & Things. Here they are (in order by page):
