Road Rules Is Almost Here

It’s almost time.  Road Rules will soon be an ebook, readable on Kindle, Nook, iPad, etc.  You won’t be able to get it from Amazon or Barnes & Noble.  For the foreseeable future, it’s going to be free.

I did a dry run this weekend on formatting it, revamping the cover slightly.  There are still some formatting problems, but they’re not insurmountable.  After figuring out a fast way to clean up the code bloat Word generally pukes into html, I did a trial into epub, which most readers use.  Unfortunately, I cleaned up Words markups for quotation marks, which unfortunately epub needs.  Other than that, the formatting looked good.  The .mobi version?

We’ll need to do more testing.

However, once all that is fixed, Road Rules will be downloadable and available for free.  Also, I’ll be ditching that godawful WordPress template for a more straightforward html page.  I had planned to put it up by Labor Day, but apparently, I’m working on Labor Day.  So it will be…

Soon?

Beyond that?  Putting the shorts up on Amazon, then collecting them as part of The Compleat Winter.  Yeah, yeah, I know.  I keep flip-flopping on that.   After that?

A surprise.
