Forever on Nook, Other E-readers, and Paperback

I know everything is up and going on Amazon and Smashwords but I’m getting many questions about the release date on the Nook and other e-readers. The good news is Nook should be up within 24-72 hours. The bad news is that it may be 2-3 weeks before it is available on other e-reading devices like the Sony e-reader and iBooks.
Forever can be downloaded for other e-reading devices (besides the Nook and Kindle) on Smashwords. The paperback is ready to go through Createspace. It will soon be available through Amazon and B&N as well. Below I have the links for Smashwords and Createspace to purchase electronic copies or paperbacks. I will let everyone know as soon as Forever is available through other vendors.

Forever Release Date Moved Up

So a funny story for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

I uploaded the new version of Immortal some months back after editing was completed. It took nearly four days to go live on Smashwords and another two days before it was updated on Amazon. I don’t really know how long it took before Barnes & Noble got it up on their site but it took a few weeks.

The reason I’m telling you all this is that I set my release date for Forever as December 1, 2011. I didn’t want the formatting and upload time to cause me to miss the date so I began the process in the WEEEEEEEEE hours of the morning on November 24, 2011. Funny thing is it didn’t take as long as I thought it would. In fact, it is now available for purchase on Smashwords and will soon be available on Amazon. I considered removing them and waiting an extra few days but that can be a tricky game so I am leaving them up.

Think of it as a Black Friday present. I hope you all enjoy and that the rest of your Thanksgiving weekend is a happy one.

Forever Release Date

I know everyone has been waiting for an update and I told you I would let you know milestones as I reached them. The suspense is over in some regards and just starting in another. Forever has been sent to the proofer (to make sure all my I’s have dots and those pesky homophones are found). With that said, I am setting the tentative release date for Forever as December 1, 2011.

As a little treat, I am also posting the cover for Forever. I hope you all enjoy it. And I look forward to your feedback.
