Thus Concludes September 1 Listings

September 1, 2008

Really, ten is about all I can stand to do in one day. It’s dull work. The kind of stuff you pay a temp to do. (In my case, I couldn’t. I’d feel guilt!)

Seeing how many writers are not yet in e, I’d be ashamed as all hell to call myself a “publisher” — especially the ones for each of these writers!

Arrrrgh!!! Goddammit, I want a law enacted. If a publisher has had a book out of paper print for at least five years and does not have it in eBook format as of today, September 1, 2008, that publishing contract becomes null and void and all rights revert back to the author who can go find a publisher who will put it in eBook form for sale. This looks like the only way to get eBooks going: Starve the bastard NYC publishing houses of their future income! Watch them suddenly move on eBooks.

The Kindle Store has a second book no one else has! Diesel is again the lowest price. What was shocking to me is how many other books Hautman has published that I didn’t know of before now.

Yes, the actress. I want her memoir of manic-depression in eBook form.
