Victory is mine!

Shelter From the Storm is officially available for download in friendly DRM-free format on Smashwords. I’m getting the Kindle formatting up and ready to go; there aren’t too many kinks left to work out.

I only barely met my goal; it was first available just before midnight on the 2nd. Smashwords does a lot of wonderful things for you, but you have to pay attention to all the little formatting details, and you absolutely have to do it in MS Word format, which renders Scrivener (my preferred writing software) considerably less useful. Fortunately, Amazon appears to take .mobi files, so I should be able to have things up and running there without too much fuss.

Been a hectic week getting this thing ready for the final push, but I can now happily say I’m out there. I’ll have it in the Kindle store soon, and I should be distributed (via Smashwords) just about everywhere ebooks are sold, including on Nook, iBooks, Kobo, Stanza, and all the usual suspects. You can even read it in your browser (just go to the book’s Smashwords page and buy it in that format) if you are particularly cruel to your eyes.

I’m sticking with $0.99 per issue for now; we’ll see how things go at that price point. Everything’s up in the air (including any sense of writing style I have in my blog – it’s after midnight and I haven’t seen this early in the AM since grad school).


About the Author

Written by MRM

I'm a speculative fiction writer that spent lots of time trying out new places to live before finally settling in NC. I love code, craft beer, football, and fiction - in no particular order. My currently running works of serial fiction can be found on Kindle, Nook, and Smashwords. If you're comfortable moving files around to your ereader of choice, always pick Smashwords as your e-bookstore of choice - they give authors a much bigger slice of the pie!
