The Stone Dragon To Be Published in October

It's been about two weeks since I've last posted--the longest I've gone in the almost two and a half years I've been writing this blog: time well spent, though!

Here is the current skinny on The Stone Dragon, my soon-to-be available fantasy novel.
  • finished with the second proof of the novel--cover image tweaked and a few small adjustments to the book interior
  • metadata (info to Lightning Source, the printer/distributor about the book) adjusted, so the title can be accepted for printing and uploading to Amazon and Barnes & Noble this next week
  • books ordered by me for marketing next week
  • Smashwords ebook tweaked to fix the minor errors found in the book proof--the book is now in their Premium Catalog and distributed to Apple, Barnes & Noble, Sony, Kobo, the Diesel eBook Store, and more
  • working on the Kindle version--should have it up in a week
  • updating online connections: Goodreads, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Blogger
  • considering the timeline for a virtual book tour
  • identifying sources for information about a PayPal "buy" button for the novel's page
Those of you who know how--be sure to remember the "share" and "tweet" buttons! And, of course, email, the grandparent of virtual information exchange.
