Troops, you rallied. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I’ve been sending out Advance Review Copies of my five soon-to-be-published books and instructions to those of you who asked to review. We still have a few spots left, so if you didn’t read Monday’s post (Rally Point Tango Alpha Bravo), go check it out and let me know if you want to play with us in the literary sandbox.

Many of you asked me to guest blog. I need a hankie, because I’m tearing up. I can’t believe how supportive this community is. I have a fancy spreadsheet now listing all my upcoming guest posts, and I will start cranking them out and sending them to you for you to plug in whenever you want a day off. Thank you!

I have discovered a wonderful tool for easily creating ebooks. If you know how to use WordPress, you know how to use Pressbooks. It’s time-consuming, but ebook creation is always time consuming. I’ll blog on its awesomeness soon, but I wanted to get the word out there, in the meantime. And big thanks to Jane Friedman, for writing about it in her last newsletter. I was about to bust out some HTML, and Pressbooks was far better, and their customer support rocks.

Wish I had time to write more, kids, but I’m preparing for the Houston Writers Guild Annual Conference, which is April 13-14. I’ll report out on the deets next week.

Cowabunga dudes,

    One of my favorite covers. (except for the missing Ghost Face :) )

    And the support had ROCKED as far as reviews and stuff goes. What an exciting time.

    And I have to put in a good word for your Editor (in case she stops by). Meghan is awesome and I expect that she will be in such demand in a few years that people will be getting in line to work with her.

      You can’t let that ghost issue die, can you hon?

      Yes, Meghan is a rock star. I hope she will still but me at the front of the line, even after she’s famous and even more sought after than she is now!

    Hi Pamela. Again, so very happy for you! I would be very interested in knowing lots more about this Pressbooks. I want to self-publish, but it seems all so overwhelming for me. Any shortcuts that would make life easier would be so appreciated. As for your guest blogging, I look forward to your gracing my humble bloggy abode.
    Wishing you mucho success in your eBooks ventures and your new publishing company. Wow. Just Wow.

  3. You? are amazing. And inspiring. And I’m so proud to be able to call you my friend and even have photos of you and trimon w/ me and my kids in NOLA.

    Pressbooks seems to be interesting. I would love to know more about it.

  5. I’m a bit late to the party! Just wanted to say “GOOD JOB” and wow! You’ve been working very hard. Thanks for the info on Pressbooks. I was using PDF995 (pdf format) which was pretty easy but I am going to check out Pressbooks. This is one of those “about time” moments because we all knew you would make it.

  6. It was wonderful to see you yesterday – you look amazing. Eric is cute!
