The business of writing (then publishing, then selling) a novel is almost an “against-all-odds” venture. There are no guarantees. None. Not even when you have mega talent, decent financial resources to build your team, and marketing knowledge . . . not even if you are picked by a traditional publisher and coddled (which seems like not such a great thing anymore) . . . not even if you are poor as a church mouse and a grammar disaster, but have a creative mind that explodes daily with brain-boggling plots and characters. There are just no guarantees, and for all the work that goes into publishing a novel, seems like we’d get a guarantee or two along the way.
Here’s one: You’ll have the most immense sense of accomplishment when you’re done. You’ll feel the American Dream, or the equivalent thereof, in its fullest sense. You’ll have separated yourself from the nonbelievers and the quitters, who just couldn’t do it anymore, those people to whom you related and with whom you sympathized, as you teetered on the brink of the same negative abyss. You’ll have become a new face in a big crowd, a face that is unique and unlike any others. And whether one person or 100,000 people notice that, it is a thrilling, inspirational accomplishment. Your spine will be like steel and your shoulders will easily bear the weight of a thousand novels. Your walk will sing with triumph.
That’s a profound perspective. Hold fast to that one guarantee, because in the grand scheme of things, the odds don’t matter. Not one wordy bit.
Folks, yesterday I uploaded our first Nook Press book, The Revealing, by author Edward J. Schneider. So far, so very very good. (Actually, I want to say behly, behly goot, because I’m just that happy.)
HAPPINESS REASON 1: In this final installment of the time-travel romance series, PARALLEL PAST, Schneider skyrockets to the expectations-met pile with this well-spun adventure.
HAPPINESS REASON 2: The cover is just damn good.
AND 3 . . . It was so easy to upload these ebook files to Nook Press. So quick, so painless . . . honestly, I thought I might be doing something wrong. But I wasn’t. It just was that easy. Not that all ebook uploads are complicated, mind you, but in my humble opinion, this is now by far the easiest (followed second by Kobo). And interestingly (and in my humble opinion) of all the upload processes for digital distributors out there, Amazon’s is the one of the more cumbersome nowadays . . . go figure! I feel an update comin’ on.
So three cheers for Edward J. Schneider in wrapping up a unique and exciting time-travel series with The Revealing, featuring strong-willed and beautiful Chandra Jarvis of year 2150, who is sucked down a wormhole to meet her band of merry pioneers (and the love of her life) in the mid-1800s American frontier. Available now on all digital outlets. Click here to purchase the book on Nook.
And three cheers for Nook Press. We are looking forward to using the platform in more ways than one–i.e., you can WRITE your book on the web-based program and upload from there. You can upload what you’ve done thus far from Word, and work on it in Nook, and then upload from there. You can collaborate with team members. All kinds of things like that. It’s just crazy neat.
