Monday Blues ~ Not So Much

Well, it's Monday and I'm feeling better all the way around. Don't really have anything new to report today, but I wanted to post something, if for no other reason than to get that Doom and Gloom post down from the top of the list. So here's a little hodgepodge for you.

Magdalena Scott has a very interesting thread of comments about independent bookstores going on over at Magdalenaville.

Angel in the Rain is on sale right now at Fictionwise for 50% off. I don't know if that applies to all their e-books, but it looks like all the Wild Rose Press books have been discounted.

The news out of romanceland is that book sales are on a big upswing. Some people are predicting that happy times are here again, but I'm a little more cautious than that. I have a feeling if/when the economy starts to recover, romance books sales will probably taper back down to their usual levels. In the meantime, though, this is very good news indeed!

Hope you all have a terrific week! I'm off to write now so I can try to get in on this upswing in the romance market. ;o)

  1. I'm so glad your Monday is a paler shade of blue, Devon! I hope you'll get lots of writing done to catch the romance wave!

    Thank you for the plug about today's blog topic--I appreciate it! I may have to print the comments, because there is some great information being shared.

    I think the Fictionwise sale is on multiformat books only. But there are LOTS of multiformat books, so it's worthwhile to take a peek.

    Now I'm back to supervising the blog, cleaning out cabinets... and oh yeah, heading into the last half of the Christmas novella. Ho-ho-ho.

  2. I'm glad you're feeling better today, Devon. I perused Magdalena's blog before I came here, and I may have to take notes too. A lot of interesting stuff today.

  3. Thanks, Magdalena! I was happy to give you a plug. You're getting some really good feedback over there. Everyone who writes for small press should take note.

    Here's hoping your fingers take wing and fly over the keyboard while you write the rest of the Christmas novella. :o)
