BLOOD WILL TELL is now available on Smashwords.

Amazon next, after a breather. (Actually, after formatting for Smashwords, Amazon's a breeze.) Then B&N PubIt after that.

Oh, and getting serious about that marketing thing.

Good for you...

Keep us notified of how it is doing.

I was going to say I have to go there and check it out but I realized I didn't have to go on my own. Duh.

Nice cover.


Egads another book I have to remember to buy. [Smile]
Just kidding the problem is with my memory Not your book.

Well done. I just had a quick look at it. I'll take a longer look later.

Is that fourth paragraph of the first chapter supposed to be a different font?

And now it's on Amazon, too.

@pdblake: No, it should all be the same font. There is a paragraph that starts with italics, though. My test copy looked fine. Guess I'll have to download one and take a look. Was that Amazon or Smashwords?

Which format? The HTML and the EPub were fine. I checked those.

ETA:
Okay, I took another look. The EPub still looks fine, but, now that you mention it, there is a change in font on the HTML and on the RTF. I'll have to recheck the file for weird fonts and upload again.

I fixed that one and it's uploading now. I'll have to go through the RTF later and make sure that there's nothing more like this.

Thanks for the heads up.

Found something I may want to update on the Kindle and B&N versions, too. But it's not critical. Just something that probably should have been in italics and wasn't.

Actually, if I recall correctly one or two hatrackers beat you both by months.

By the time I get my book up it will be one of many.

We could almost start our own section on smashwords or some other web site. [Smile]
