Wednesday Midday Links & Deals: The Bride Sale 70+ books, less...

CIFRR is currently on show in the grounds of Tatton Park www.tattonparkbiennial.org and features an exact 1/2 scale replica of the glider; the Colditz Cock, which also lends its name to our limited edition novel. The novel is inspired by the works of Barbara Cartland and tells the story of Mary, a British woman trapped in war torn Germany and based on a young Barbara Cartland. After an unexpected encounter with a British airman, they create a daring escape plan echoing the true story of the famous glider built by prisoners of war at Colditz. The story draws on real people and events to create an imagined account of aviation, romance, escape and wartime Tatton. The character of Mary is based on the young Cartland.

You can enjoy the first chapter of this book for free at http://www.tattonparkbiennial.org/detail/4380/ It is also available for purchase from http://tinyurl.com/bwep9f4

    I heard the interview with Marjorie Liu on the radio the other day – I had no idea that she also writes for Marvel. How cool. I think this is only the second time I’ve heard a romance author on public radio (I know this show is from the CBC but my local American public radio station carries Q).

    The McNally article leads to a question I’ve been meaning to ask for a while- Would it be possible for you to put up affiliate links to either Powells, IndieBound, or AllRomance? I’d love to give DA some love when I’m buying books based on your reviews, but when at all possible I buy from someone other than A/BN/S/K.

    “We get the feeling they can’t stand the sight of each other anymore.”

    The story about the turtles makes me sad :(

    @Liz: Jane has an All Romance link on the sidebar that I often use.

    I’m not completely sure what something that is part statue, part shrine, part romance novel is going to be like, but I’m intrigued. And since I don’t live too far from Tatton Park, I think I’ll go and see.

    Apparently the delivery cost for the travel book is so high because the file is much bigger than normal due to all the photos. According to a comment to the article, a plain text book costs 6 cents to deliver. It may still be way too much, but it is far from typical.

    While that mother-daughter reading club sounds interesting, I’m wary of Scholastic where girls are involved. They did do this, after all.

    @Ridley: Wow. Reading the intro, I didn’t think it could possibly be as bad as they were making out, but it was actually worse. There weren’t one or two questionable chapters; they were almost all horrible. If I had to pick out the worst, it might be the one on how to show you’re sorry. Because girls/women are supposed to spend their lives being apologetic, but guys get a pass? But the how to be a good babysitter was right up there, too. Yep, make sure they get those child-minding skills down early.

    Yuck. I think I need to go rinse my mouth out now.

    @library addict: I never noticed that before (obviously, lol). Thanks! Will definitely be clicking.

    As an author of ebooks with pictures in them, I also am not a big fan of delivery costs. Delivery costs are something Amazon could justify when they had to use their Whispernet network to send everything to Kindles. Now with iPhones and other devices using the KindleApp, they are providing a download but not the entire infrastructure to deliver the book to the consumer (as many of them use wi-fi or 3G networks to receive the content) it’s definitely a way to nickel & dime. Bandwidth and storage costs are on a downward trajectory.

    I was really glad to see the cover of Angels of Darkness win the alternate reality category in the Cover Cafe contest.
