Daughter Bereaved, Daughter Disinherited, and Daughter Betrayed are now published under my nom de plume Guy Antibes. These comprise my Shattuk Downs trilogy--all written this year. Together they are over 750 pages long.

They are available at Amazon (link goes to my author page), Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, etc. That includes trade paperbacks available at Amazon. I used CreateSpace for those.

Congratulations!

Do you find the paperbacks do better/as well as the e-books? Just curious.

Again, I admire your productivity. That you have so many books for readers to choose from is a great way to make your presence as an author known.

The covers are eye-catching, and your fantasies have colored maps (save Brull). I wish you great success.

Did you find Createspace everything you wished?

Respectfully,
Dr. Bob

Createspace is a great tool, but I know how to create my own covers and design the interior of my books.

I still haven't sold a single paperback, but that's probably my fault because I've done little to no marketing. I have my NaNo novel in the hopper and hope to have that published in December.

Now I have an editing system that includes two passes through my printed version and it's really helped me to polish my work. That's an advantage with publishing. For me it's too easy to miss errors on a word processor, but put it on paper and I'm much more sensitive, for some reason.

Part of my 2013 work will be doing marketing so I can get books sold. Just posting them on the outlets isn't enough, despite what some people say. I now have sufficient content, so I can spend a bit of time working on attracting readers.

I would really love to find someone who reviews short stories. Is there a site or a reviewer that folks could recommend?

Well, I just put in my order on Amazon-dot-com.

No. It's not my picture. It's my crazy son who owns a cockatiel of all things. I'm an old guy. If I put my picture up, your screen would turn to parchment.
