Monday Midday Links: IPDF proposes ‘Light Weight DRM’; Self Pub author meltdown
Giveaways (not taking place here)
The editor, Harrison Demchick, of The Sinful Life of Lucy Burns (a recommended read by Robin aka Janet) and The Understory written by Elizabeth Leiknes, wrote us to let us know about a giveaway the publishing house is running to celebrate the release of The Understory.
Basically, it’s like this. As long as we get 100 entries, we’ll be giving away to a lucky winner:
1.) The Understory
2.) The Sinful Life of Lucy Burns
. . . and two more eBooks of the winner’s choosing.
And the more people who enter after that, the more winners we’ll choose!
All the rules, and the entry form, are at www.facebook.com/bancroftpress.
Harrison Demchick writes the best review queries I’ve ever read. I would never be able to say no to him. In any event, Robin really thinks the world of Elizabeth Leiknes’ writing and if you want to support a small press, this is the way to do it.
Speaking of small presses, get a load of this authorial meltdown:
I am not a small press. I am an author with 18 titles for sale. That is more titles that some big publishing houses. I have advertising currently running in Locus, Publishers Weekly, Fantasy and Sci Fi, and Revolver magazines. I have blog advertising across the entire blog-o-sphere. I am not a small press or even self published. M. R. Mathias’ books are PUBLISHED by Michael Robb Mathias Jr. and should be treated no differently that any big named publishers title. WHY? Because I do my job as a publisher too. Please quit sending my posts into the self published/small press thread. My titles are neither. I have 92k twitter followers @DahgMahn and 10 titles in their genre bestselling list. There is nothing self pubbed, or small, about books written by M. R. Mathias. Thank you, M.R.Mathias’ publisher, Michael Robb Mathias Jr.“
Personal Note: go read the entire post. It is thoroughly entertaining.
Just one today (because I’m super busy. I promise more later this week)
