After talking to a lot of you, I have come to the realization that you folks like real books. You like the feel of paper, the sensation of turning pages, that “new book” smell.
I have to admit that I’m a little surprised by this. After all, I’ve been hearing for years that print is dead and the death of the physical publishing industry was imminent. When I started putting the Tales from the Keep up for sale, I avoided hard copies of them, thinking no one would want them.
I was wrong.
Hang around. I’ll probably be wrong again at some point.
Armed with this new information, I’ve decided to do something special.
I’ve been working on an anthology for a while, which I was planning to release in November. Now, I think what I’ll do is combine that anthology with the previously released Elders Keep stories. For the first time, all of the Elders Keep stories will be available from Amazon as a physical book.
That’s the four Tales from the Keep, previously published electronically, and three (possibly four) heartwarming stories about holidays in the Keep, in a hard copy format you can place on your bookcase to cherish for all time.
More information will be disseminated (and you can’t tell me that’s not a funny word) at my Facebook page and on my Twitter feed. Here’s a hint: the hashtag will be #BlackFriday.
That’s all for now, Loyal Fanbase! Thanks for your support.
