Daily Thoughts 03/26/2013

I checked the libraries Facebook and Twitter pages this morning. 

I started reading Publishing E-books for Dummies by Ali Luke.  Sometimes, it is helpful to understand how these things work. There were a few authors that were mentioned as successful examples of self publishers with ebooks, namely Darren Rowse who writes Problogger, and Holly Lisle who writes science fiction.  There are quite a few other authors who have reclaimed their backlist and are selling them as ebooks.  Mike Resnick has an ebook store http://mikeresnick.com/?page_id=455
Also, C.J. Cherryh, Lynn Abbey, and Jane Fancher have an ebook site at http://www.closed-circle.net/
