Those of you who do not eat, sleep, and breathe the publishing industry may be surprised to learn that Barnes & Noble bought Fictionwise early this year. That's right--a BIG brick-and-mortar bookstore chain purchased a BIG ebook vendor. That had all kinds of good written on it when I first heard about it, but it wasn't until this week that I learned it has an even different kind of good. My books are now available at Barnes & Noble. My ebooks!
When Maddie James discovered this, we were all thrilled. Eventually, it seems, all titles available at Fictionwise will also be on the B&N website. So if you go to www.bn.com and search for my name, all my ebooks should pop up. So far Where Her Heart Is hasn't shown up, so I guess there's a time lag. WHHI has only been at Fictionwise a couple of weeks. (And somehow a couple of books that I didn't write come up when you search for my name. I don't take credit for those.)
I am giving a little talk about writing and publishing next month, and I haven't even started composing it yet. The business changes every single day, and if I had written the presentation when I was first asked to do it, it would be horribly outdated by now.
Isn't it exciting?
