    Paul, how is your story coming along? I haven’t seen any updates and I can’t seem to find the original chapter on your blog. You had such a great opening…I wanted to read more!

      Beverly, thanks for asking! I took that excerpt off my blog, as I was disappointed in the response, which was minimal. I don’t think “blog-a-book” is a viable idea in any case. But the good news is I have been feverishly writing it, which accounts for why I haven’t done much blogging lately. I have Part One (I intend this to be a serialized novel) finished–10 chapters and 122 pages dbl-spaced. The manuscript is now in the hands of my best friend Jon, who is sick in Norway at the moment, so I don’t even know if he’s read it yet. Another copy is in the hands of my 29 yr old son, and I’m waiting for his opinion also. I am going the route of e-booking before hard copies, and have been investigating the requirements of Amazon’s Kindle, Smashwords (Apples’ I-Books; Barnes & Noble’s Nook, and others, and CreateSpace, which does print-on-demand (hard copy). You know now that you mention it, I did write a short promo with some quotes from the book; maybe I will post that to my blog and see what happens…

        Paul, you might check Jo Robinson’s blog…she e-published with Smashwords and according to her recent post,has withdrawn her book from that site…she didn’t seem pleased with it, something about pirating her book. I am still holding off on e-publishing…haven’t found the right fit yet. Some of them only pay royalties twice yearly. Anyway, happy to hear your novel is that far along. The best way to attract comments to your blog is to visit other writers’ blogs and leave comments. They will usually return the visit.

          Wow! Thanks ever so much for the head’s up on Jo’s post re Smashwords. Apparently, it lends itself to being easily copied to provide content for any website that wants it, including those who use it as a platform for delivering malware. I spent 2 full days on vetting SW, and thought it was pretty slick until I read their “style manual” for pre-formatting your Word manuscript to be ready for their conversion software to all kinds of ebook formats other than Kindle. I was put off by the very non-foolproof procedures one had to go through. What could go wrong? Everything! But I had no idea of the negative experience Jo and other authors have had with it (as evidenced by the comments). So I haven’t rushed into this e-book parade either; it has lots of downsides. So far, it appears that Amazon’s Kindle is the most risk-free, and I would add, has the easiest file conversion procedures. As authors, we’re so smart to be able to write the things we write. But we can’t be dumb about publishing and marketing. Will keep you posted on what I find out as I go…

            You can also publish directly to Kobo. Thanks for the update…there are so many online publishers out there which makes it difficult to find the right one. The problem with Amazon is getting through to someone for help if there is a problem…such a huge organization. However it appears to be one of the easier online publishers to work with when it comes to e-publishing.

            Yep. Trying to contact Amazon is like calling Microsoft. Good luck. I’ll check out Kobo too. Again, thanks for your input. Let’s see what we can figure out…
            BTW, I just got a call from CreateSpace, which is owned by Amazon; they do POD. I had registered with them recently. They do seem to be on top of things, actually calling their prospects, and I’ve heard nothing bad about them to date.
            They were acquired by Amazon a few years ago, but apparently have kept their small firm identity.

    Paul, Check out Norcal Spirit Walkers (a paranormal research group). They posted ‘Terminology: A list for paranormal and anomalies researchers.’ – very interesting terminology that you might enjoy reading.
