April Fools Day

Happy April Fool’s Day

Happy April Fool’s Day

The April Fool’s jokes started early last night.  Google always participates and this year pulls out a fantastic 8 BIT NES Google Maps.

The following video shows you how to use the cartridge. Blowing on the teeth of the cartridge is an important part of the installation process.

Sarah Wendell went old school at the Smart Bitches. Nothing beats auto play Fabio.

Dear Author’s April Fool’s Day was a kickstarter. 

 

Welcome to the New World of Publishing

Welcome to the New World of Publishing

I’ve been watching the digital space ever since I started this blog.   We were early advocates of digital publishing because it provided convenience but more importantly an avenue for under recognized authors to seek new audiences.   In the past year, digital growth has accelerated at a rapid pace and is set to be at least 30 if not 50% of the market by the end of 2012.   The new publishing frontier is digital.

I’m excited to say that Sarah Wendell and I are using our co venture, The TBR, to present a brand new opportunity in this digital space.   It will be a way for us to bring to you readers books that you will love.   Yes, some may seem familiar to you, but that is purposeful.   Our goal is to discover fiction that you want to read and acquire it and present it to you in the best possible form and format.   It may be that not everyone   agrees with our methods but those people (we affectionately term them h8rs) are burdened by old legacies.   The new digital frontier is about acquisition and possession.

And we bring both to you.   I hope you will join us in embracing the new synergy of tomorrow:   The TBR Press, acquiring new books everyday.

Don’t forget, in your haste to rush over to a) submit or b) purchase, that we have our Friday Film Review as well as our Recommended Reads for April and our book reviews.
