Well, I’m official.  The Iron Crown is now available on SmashWords, which will eventually make it available for the Nook through Barnes & Noble, Apple’s iBooks, and various other eBook retail outlets.  On SmashWords, it’s priced at $2.99, but if you use this coupon code VV47G by Sunday, June 24th, you’ll get a dollar off.  A steal!

I’m still wrapping up the re-formatting for Kindle, but I think all I have left is to fix the table of contents.  It will also be sold on Amazon for $2.99.  I am going to make a print-on-demand paperback book available through CreateSpace, but after they figure in royalties, and material cost, the minimum price it can be purchased for is around $18.  That’s pretty steep for a paperback, even if it is 500+ pages.  Once I’m done with Amazon and CreateSpace, I’ll post links to them.

Being published feels bizarre, especially after all this time.  It bascially took just under 3 years to publish a book that took 37 days to write.  I can barely wrap my head around it.  Still, apart from the weirdness, it still feels pretty cool, almost like I’m legitimate.  I even have a Facebook page, though it makes me feel like a narcissist.  Still, the whole “like” phenomenon is pretty cheap advertising.

Well, that’s it for now.  I’m off to wrap up the Kindle stuff, and take a little time off.  I’m sure I’ll still post, but that’s probably the most writing I’m going to do for a while.  I deserve a break.  🙂

    I got mine! I forgot to put in the coupon code so I’m writing a letter to the author to see if I can recoup my loss… 😉
