Monday Update - The Book Launch

Six Saturdays from now, Starfish will be launching another six books, and we have a draft poster.


Snazzy eh.  No doubt there will be some changes to the typeface and one of the covers may change, but what you see is (roughly) what you will get.

The range of books is interesting too. One comedy, one short story collection, one fantasy, a historical romance and two crime thrillers, one with a writer and one with an ex-undercover cop.

We're also at the stage where I can get the ebooks formatted and ready, then copy them to a CD which we shall be selling alongside print books. The CD will contain three versions, a kindle (prc), a regular (epub) and a PDF in A5 size.  We're still debating whether to release them under the creative commons license, but that decision will be made sooner rather than later.

So, lap up the information, lust after the books and I'll see you on Wednesday.

Nice. They really do have a good diversity, which is awesome. And it's really smart to have those three formats for electronic stuff.

Rena: Thankyou. We're learning as we go, making new rules and adapting old ones. To coin a phrase, we're doing it our way.
