I'm An Amazon Author!

I'm excited to announce that "Mists of Blackfen Bog" is finally available at Amazon. It only took a couple of weeks longer than what I anticipated. Figuring out formatting solutions in Word is not the easiest, but reverse engineering skills come in handy.

Digital copies for the Kindle may be found HERE. The print edition is found HERE.

I'm very excited about the print version. It's an adorable little volume that one can cuddle with. Really, it's no bigger than the Kindle itself, but just snugglier.

Brave woman! I gave up on formatting with Word and ended up using OpenOffice. Maybe someday I'll figure Word out, but it won't be today. Congrats!

Thank you so much, B. T.

Once we had the right Word documentation and an example doc to look at, we were able to create a lovely interior. I say "we" b/c it took both my husband and I searching to nail it down. But now I'll be able to apply that knowledge to the next one. Excited!

85% through Mists and still riveted!

Congrats! I'll put this on my list and order it with my school books!

Court Ellyn said...

Aw, thank you so much, Ashley!

@Milo - Eek. The ending is always the clencher. Will it disappoint? *bites nails in growing anxiety*

It's so neato. I just learned that Smashwords distributed their edition of "Mists" this month, and the novella can be found for the Nook at B&N!!! - http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/mists-of-blackfen-bog-court-ellyn/1031016904

I'm sure that with the next book, all this will be old hat and nothing to freak out over. But for now, this is the coolest thing ever!

100% complete, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Well-written, great characters, and enough of a horror-type edge to hold my interest the whole way through.

Congrats on the book! I'm about to order a new kindle and I put you on my wish list so I'd remember to download. SWEET. Also, read your post above about the slow going and I'm totally feeling you! I've been having a hard time myself lately. Oh, and I think being captured by a pirate is a good thing ... if the pirate is as hot as Cap'n Jack Sparrow. Yes, indeedy. :)

Anita Grace Howard said...

Oh, and the book cover is beautiful!

Court Ellyn said...

@Anita - LOL - my pirate is hot, yes, indeed. But, uh, in a not-so-questionable-sanity sort of way.

Thank you so much for adding me to your to-read list as well. I feel most honored.

Court Ellyn said...

@ Milo - *whew* I can relax now. Horror does not come naturally, so I'm glad there was enough there to keep you reading.

So happy you enjoyed it. :D And thanks for taking the time to read.
