In case you missed yesterday's announcements on other social media, I am pleased to inform you that "Damned Yankee: The Story of a Marriage" is progressing quite nicely. The page proofs needed only a few corrections, and I'm now anticipating making the final "Print It!" statement around Easter. The end of April promises to be typically chaotic around here, since we are running a big Lions State Convention here from the 24th through the 27th. But somewhere in there, I'll find time to check the physical proof and launch the other electronic formats.
This is the full cover spread for paperback editions. I'm quite pleased with it.
Release day is now officially May 1, 2014. As some of you are all too aware, Amazon will not do pre-orders for independently-published books, or for small presses that do not have an account with them. So those of you who will be ordering Kindle editions or paperbacks from Amazon will have to wait until May 1 to get your copy. However, pre-orders are available now for Barnes and Noble Nook editions and for Apple's iBooks.
I've set the pre-order price for electronic editions at $3.99; it will increase to $4.99 on release day. The paperback versions will sell for $17.95 on Amazon and Smashwords, but if you want to pre-order your paperback, you can get a price break there, too.
Go to the Katzenhaus website (http://www.katzenhausbooks.com/The-Latest-News.html). There you'll find the button to pre-order a signed and bookmarked paper copy for a total of $20.00 (including shipping.) What a deal! Just do it soon, OK? I need to know how many paper copies to order when I give the "PRINT" command.
