THE BECKONING ICE now in print
My first print book from Old Salt Press!
It is quite a moment. And, as my artist-husband Ron decided, it is a decidedly professional product.
Available from Amazon.com, as well as the usual distributors, such as Ingram and NACSCORP.
The POD printer chosen for The Beckoning Ice was CreateSpace, a customer-friendly, easy-to-use engine with a help desk that is very responsive when questions are asked. The big downside of CS for me (and customers in New Zealand and Australia) is the shipping cost to get the book across the Pacific, which of course has to be added on to the price down here.
This makes Lightning Source, a rival POD printer, attractive to downunder customers, because they have a branch in Australia.
More about that later, as more books move from digital to print.
Meantime, the digital version of The Beckoning Ice, updated and with interior illustrations, has been reissued at the more realistic price of $5.99 --- which is still a bargain, when compared to the price of the print book. And many thanks to the many, many people who have downloaded the book, and especially to those who have posted reviews.
For review copies of either the digital edition or the printed book, please contact Old Salt Press.
