Cover time!

Oh, and after hitting "publish" on that long, rambling post a few minutes ago, I just remembered what I was actually going to post about. I have a cover for "Goldie," my steampunks Goldielocks novella being published in January by Musa. Isn't it beautiful?

The trouble with ebooks is that it's not practical to hold giveaway contests. It's not like a print book where you have a copy you can pick up and sign and put in an envelope and send to the winner. But maybe I can think of something else to give away when "Goldie" is released. Any suggestions?

I like. She looks like she could kick some serious butt.

Nice.

As for a giveaway - you could offer a signed copy of Jack. Heck, it might lead to some sales for the underappreciated bloke.

Aaron--I agree. Let the butt-kicking commence! In January, anyway.

Cate--Jack is going out of print so there's no point in trying to drum up sales. I will probably reissue it as an ebook when Evil Outfitters is about to be released, since they're set in the same world.

Jack is going out of print!!!! I am both sad and elated. Elated because that means I have a rare first edition. ;)

Hehe, maybe I should keep my extra copy for after I'm famous. Nah, I'll be rich then too, of course. :)

Cool. Congratulations!

Thanks!

This looks seriously cool! I've seen (and won) download giveaways, so I don't think it's such a bad idea to do that, but if you want something different, maybe you could give away a print of the cover art? It's quite nice!

Ooh, you know, that's a good idea! I'd like a copy for myself too. I seriously love this cover.

Awesome cover -- and I just ordered GOLDIE @ Musa.

Your fellow Uranian,

Remember you can give away copies of your ebooks and use Kindlegraph to sign them available at Amazon for all authors.
