I started doing e-books for the Kindle in order to get some attention from real publishers, and it appears my diabolical plan has worked. A new, small, start-up publisher has asked to see a copy of the Justified Sins manuscript with the possibility of bringing it out as a paperback. This is terrific news. Yes, the press is small; yes, it's a start-up; who cares? If we're successful it could be the start of a wonderful long-term relationship that's good for everybody. Who says e-books are bad? Anyway they have the manuscript and we should hear a decision in the usual amount of time.
