I’m very much a Luddite and a dinosaur, and if I had a cane I’d sure I’d be shouting “get off my lawn!” and uttering the word “whippersnapper”–at least when it comes to all this newfangled “technology.”
My first book was published in 1991. Some of my most devoted readers weren’t even born then. The internet as it is now was firmly under the label “science fiction”, not “reality,” and reading books on a telephone? Crikey.
Well, the times have changed, and so must I.
I’m investigating all kinds of options in the Brave New World of publishing, and one of the more basic things technology can offer me is a chance to get signed copies of my novels into the hands of readers. 🙂 “Yes, friends, I am assured that with the click of a button, readers can order a book, request what type of personalization they desire, and have it mailed to them, all from the comfort of their own homes!”
*serious voice* What’s especially cool about this (to me, anyway) is that not only will readers be able to order books that are in print, I have many copies of rare, out-of-print books that they can purchase as well. I’ve been a regular at StarFest selling these books, and I sold several copies recently at DragonCon, but I’m very excited to soon be able to offer it to anyone who is interested.
Stay tuned! This is going to be fun!
