New Store Section

Christmas5New Store Section for our website has been created and we are adding new eBooks to our inventory as fast as we can. You can visit it by clicking OUR STORE tab above or clicking HERE. Of course, you can buy an Acrobat Reader PDF format of our Insider’s Guide to Campground Hosting in Florida Parks directly from us. We have added most of the holiday books, coloring and craft pages and cookbooks. We are in the process of adding more eBooks we own the resell rights to as we can. Separating the store into it’s own domain should help keep our websites running quickly and efficiently as possible. Now that we are using a new web hosting service we hoping not to have to change to another one any time in the future.

Getting Caught Up

computermechanicWe are slowly getting caught up on our blog writing on all of our remaining websites. This month we have let a few website domains go back to the registrar in order to keep up with the other ones that are making a little more money. This will allow us to keep them updated and may even let us offer more services to our fellow writers. Since, we have over 20 years experience with computers and websites we can help the new authors out with building them a website, writing articles about how to build your own webpage on some of the few remaining FREE webhosting places and even offer services to format their books into the most popular formats for self publication. Yes, you can absolutely follow the instructions on Amazon and Smashwords to do all of these things yourself. But why should you when someone is willing to help you get it down for a small fee.

Marketing Your Book at Local Author Expos

If you have done it yet you might want to seriously consider filling out an application for the upcoming Local Author Expo being held at the Riverside Arts Market on April 18th. They are inviting all the local authors to “Meet the Public” discuss your books, your writing and even possibly sell a couple of copies. Of course, you will need to let your fans, family and friends know you will be attending the event so that they can come get their books autographed! The cost is only $25 per vending booth area, which is about a 10ftx10ft space that you will set up your table(s), chair(s), your books, marketing materials such as posters, bookmarks, buttons, etc. You might even want to consider setting up a canopy tent to keep the sun off and maybe even the rain. This is a “rain or shine” place. If you haven’t been to RAM in the past you might even want to visit this coming Saturday.

New eBook Store Plugin

475 Gift Basket IdeasNew eBook Store Plug-in. Yes, we are once again trying to a new eCommerce plug-in for our eBook store page. We have not been satisfied with any of the FREE eCommerce plug-ins being offered on WordPress.org and are not willing to pay for one until we actually find one that will work with our own WordPress theme and, of course, we begin to make some book sales. We have moved most of our handcrafted (physical items) that we have for sale to our Square-Up Marketplace account. They handle all the financial transactions and we just ship the items. Since, I have always wanted to own and operate my own bookstore I am determined to keep at it until I find one that works for me. We have an inventory of over 200 eBooks that we have the resell rights to and will be adding them a little at a time. We have some more that we haven’t been able to assess yet and will work on those once we have the others added. Almost every single one of those will only be $1.00 and are available for immediate download with all payments being processed through PAYPAL. Again, we will not have access to your financial information with them either.

Holidays and Books

Christmas LivingroomHolidays and Books go together like eggs and bacon. We all love to read books, others are busy writing books and this time of year we all like to give and get books for presents. You may have your favorite bookstore that you love to visit and browse through to see all the new offerings, the lovely book covers, as well as the book paraphernalia and other things being offered. For some of us we have to content ourselves with browsing online from Amazon, Barnes and Noble and even the iTunes iBookstore to sate our cravings. Of course, visiting your local library is always nice and should be encouraged every single week. But there is just something special about picking out a brand new book for ourselves or our loved ones. Holding the book in our hands, looking through the pages and pictures is a sensory delight to most readers and writers.
