BLOG - Notes and commentary
2.12.19 Today marks a new start. I have left both Etsy and Smashwords, and started to publish my own ebooks in several formats. Right now the books are available as PDFs and EPUBs. If anyone has any desire for another I can publish another but these are the most popular. I am looking into other viable marketplaces to showcase my work in all areas, but some will not sponsor digital downloads, so it will probably take some time to find more. In the meantime, please visit my two other sites and you will find some interesting things for sale.
1.31.19 I have been having a few issues with Smashwords, where I have published most of my ebooks. Their meatgrinder processor is not reading the files correctly. I have revised the files several times in an effort to comply with their rules but I can't really get past it. The fact is that when I look at the doc files in Word, they are fine. So I can only conclude they are ignoring the problem. I am debating whether I should just not bother to publish the books (especially the nonfiction books) in ebook formats. Is there any point in publishing them in ebook format at all? Meanwhile, I have taken the abridged books off publication and just relied on KDP, where they don't have any problem with the files I upload.
