Just a quick update on where we’re at:
I get another proof from the printer today. If it all looks good, I can approve the Amazon listing. It may take a few weeks for it to be fully available on Amazon, however. Oh, and it will be available internationally thru Amazon, which is cool for all my international friends who I know are losing precious hours of sleep each night wondering when they can purchase Eden… right?
In parallel to Amazon, I’m also finalizing the paperwork for both Barnes & Noble (may hit at the same time as Amazon) and Ingram. The importance of being in Ingram is you could walk up to a brick & mortar bookstore, feed them the name/author, and they could order it for you… not that I expect that to *ever* happen.
Now, if my print looks good today, you *could* technically order Eden in print tonight. However, Amazon has better shipping deals and usually applies a discount. If you order directly from my publisher, they don’t have any deals going on right now. So, I’ll provide the links, but I recommend waiting for Amazon.
So close, yet so far! I have Eden in MOBI format, but my kindle distribution may still be a few weeks off. Amazon recently changed some rules about accepting MOBI documents, so things are delayed a tad. However, I downloaded a PC-Kindle application and read part of Eden in a “kindle-like” window yesterday! It looks great! So, all the parts are in place, it’s just a waiting game.
NOOK (Barnes & Noble)
Does anyone actually own this device? Well, I decided I wouldn’t leave anyone out… so, it should be available on the Nook in ~8 weeks. Yeah, Barnes & Noble moves at glacial speeds.
Sony and Kobo readers are also somewhat “mainstream”. Eden should be available on those in ~2-3 weeks.
That’s all for now! Stay tuned!
