The trip was great! We put in 1,100 miles exploring Washington and saw trees, mountains, rivers, lakes, falls, clouds, hamlets, towns, cities, one of a kind shopping venues, elk out our hotel window, and the Mariners beat the Phillies in a great baseball game. We loved it.
During an excursion to a remote beach recommended to us by a cute waitress from Russia, we ended up driving through Forks, WA – famous from the Twilight books. We saw a tour bus offering a three hour Twilight Tour in a town that didn’t take three minutes to get through end-to-end. We thought it was amusing, but it still brought home how much influence some books can have on people’s lives.
Speaking of influential books, did you hear that J.K. Rowling is going digital? She’s planning a site called Pottermore that will not only provide fan interactivity but will be a portal for eBook versions of her classic Harry Potter volumes. We’ll certainly purchase electronic versions to go with our paper ones. Suddenly it seems a lot less lonely being independent eBook creators.
Which brings us to what we hope is old news for all the fans of our blog. Our first eBook, Bobbie Titan in the Mark of Kain, has been released. Currently it is available at our own sales site, Amazon, B&N, and Google. Apple, Sony, and Borders take forever to get it up on their sites. The easiest way to link to any of these distribution outlets is to go to our eBook portal www.le-kain.com. We hope everyone will get the chance to read it and tell us what you think of our efforts.
Well, it’s now back to the grind. We are working on a second eBook we hope to release before summer is over. This time it’s a romantic comedy with plenty of mischief and a hint of mystery. We hope The Valentine’s Game will be available in August, which will give you plenty of time to read The Mark of Kain and tell us what you think.
