Ready or Not…

eWorld, here I come. I hope. Venturing into the digital book world has been quite an experience. I’ve torn my hair out over formatting, dragged my heels because I’m old enough that big changes are to be resisted! Always! *g* Finally told myself to get over it and move on. Reminds me of the day someone mentioned ‘wireless’ internet connection. I argued that one…how could one connect to the internest without a phone line? Humph!

Guess who is working ‘wireless’?

This morning I uploaded Spring Blossom to Amazon Kindle and it is “In Review”. If I’ve submitted it properly, the book should be available in the Kindle Store in approx. 48 hours. This was my first published book, now out of print. It’s like a first baby…well, close enough that you get my drift. And it’s about to be re-born. Ha!

Am I excited? Damned right I am! *g* I’m reserving my Cheshire Cat grin until I see Spring Blossom in the Kindle Store, however. So, call me a doubting, weak-kneed and exhausted. I am.

It’s been quite a morning. Time to make another pot of coffee…or maybe I’ll just warm up the cold stuff in my cup by adding a dash of brandy.

      Thank you, Mary and Bob! I’m working on the sequel now…Family Reunion. Have to re-type that book, too! But it’s fun!

  3. Hah…Just noticed it went live so I’m hoping I bought the first copy *big Intrepid grin*. Welcome to the digital world Ms. Metcalf. And I know what you mean about being dragged into the techno world. Up until about 15 yrs ago, I was still using a typewriter *snort*

    How good it is that technology has given new life to your work?
    My, oh my it’s not 1992 – what a journey, eh?

    May your venturing into the digital book world be highly successful for you!
    I still have all your printed books – does this now make me a relic?

    Congratulations on your ebooks! I have finally gotten serious about getting my own backlist (13 books) into ebook form and I’ve spent the past week connecting with other authors, websites, forums, etc. Wow, have I learned a lot! I’ve read your posts on the yahoo group. I’m excited and a little anxious… πŸ™‚
