Watch as I do my best Julie Andrews impression. Watch as I decide to stick to writing.
Recently, I completed my interview on Smashwords while researching the guidelines for e-book submission (no, sorry, you can’t submit your pristine and professionally-designed files…you must strip everything out, thereby rendering it broken—yeah no one uses italics in books…who cares if we’re asking you to take out all the formatting—send in a WORD document so we can shove it through our meat-grinder with the barest of formatting to create versions of those exact same files you already made, only not as good…whatever).
But this post isn’t about the ridiculousness of their process (though maybe it should be). My interview can be viewed here, as well as under the Press & Media tab on the website. What other questions would you like to see answered? What would you like to know? Nothing too personal, mind you, but drop a comment and let me know if you think of any questions to add.
Oh…and I’ve added a little playlist of sorts to the Book Trailer page, to tide you over until we complete the official trailer itself! Now, we obviously won’t be using these songs in the trailer (they frown upon copyright infringement and such), but they’ve been in my head for so long screaming to get out and play with everyone. And so I obliged, with only the utmost respect intended to the songwriters and performers involved. These are the videos from the official YouTube channels.
