New Book Ready to Go!

This morning, I approved the IngramSpark proof for This Is Not the Book That Will Save Your Life, and ordered my 10 copies to sell at readings, give out for promotional purposes, etc. The official on-sale date is April 28th; I will post pre-order links as soon as I have them.

In the meantime, I will have the e-book versions to prepare—and I will also prepare a version for CreateSpace, so that I can make the book available through Amazon stores in those territories that IngramSpark’s Global Connect program does not cover. Until then…it’s a book!

ART 65 #3

I have now lost count of my drafts of This Is Not the Book That Will Save Your Life.

I am leaving up the draft I posted the link to a couple of days ago, but I have already made a couple of changes—replaced one or two poems, added another one, fixed a typo.

In the meantime, I am waiting to see if Bowker runs another special on ISBN bundles. I wanted to take advantage of their last one (on the 100 ISBN bundle), but then there was that whole gotta pay the rent sort of thing. So here’s hoping for one of their discounts on the bundle of 10 ISBNs…
