The Book Corner / Re: Hostile Witness by Rebecca Forster
« on: January 03, 2012, 07:56:38 AM »
Good grief! Here I've been cleaning the house and fitting in a bit of writing when I get the head's up that this discussion is going on! Hey guys and thanks for the kind words. Hoping those who haven't read any of my books yet will like them and those of you that have well, THANK YOU!

So shout out to Gordon and Brian, incredible authors whose books I have enjoyed so much. In fact, I have Love Honor and Consequences up right now Gordon! And Brian, your new Drake book is due out soon. I loved Reaper's Dozen. Going to scroll down because I think I saw some other on line buddies here, too.

Expertise Witness just went up before Xmas, now I'm working on Eyewitness. What better way to start the new year than reading, writing and a clean house LOL

Thanks again. Hope 2012 is fabulous for everyone.

Rebecca

Ah, you've reminded me to check in on a good friend in the UK. Sleep tight. By tomorrow I'll be an old hand at this!

Ricky, I think I had an epiphany. Do you mean go into my profile and there is something in there that will allow me to put the covers into my signature? I bet that's it. Going to explore now. You are veryyyyy patient. ;D

 ??? I pushed the quote button, I went to amazon, copied the code from Silent Witness. No cover. Am I just really dumb? I think I'll give up and hope people will just find my books. You're a saint Ricky. I tagged you. R-

Reese, I'm new too and I tagged your page now I'm going to attempt to put in an image. Whoops. Didn't work. I'm frustrated about getting my covers in here.  :-\  I'll keep tagging.

Hi Vicki, thanks for the welcome. I tagged your books and all books above that! Still trying to figure out how to get my covers up :). First though better check for the Neg Fairy on all my stuff.

Ricky, Gertie, Many thanks. You guys are awesome.  I will check out the instructions tomorrow when I'm fresh and then start tagging people back. This is very cool. I have to say, this board seems to be full of good-humored folks. Hope everyone sleeps well. G'night and thanks again!

I would love to join in on tagging/being tagged.  Sadly, I can't figure out how to upload my book covers. When I click on insert image I get an image message of some sort like this. Would love some guidance. Many Thanks.

lots of books she can't figure out how to show

Let's Talk Kindle! / Re: Books to Kindle?
« on: November 03, 2010, 08:41:32 AM »
Hi everybody,
I can tell you my experience. I've had over 20 books traditionally published and now I can make the decision whether to post my books for e-readers because I own the rights to all of them. I can't use the cover from the actual books because I don't own the rights to that. I have now also started publishing my work as an Independent - bypassing traditional publishers and going straight to e-books. However, with a publisher, each contract is different but the publishers address the question of e-rights and it's up to the agent/editor to hash out the details. I know Grisham resisted e-publishing for a long time but now he's got his entire back list up, too. And you're right, the bigger the name the more say they have over e-rights.  So, if you have a favorite author, you might right to them.  If their books are out of print perhaps they simply haven't taken the steps to upload to e-books. I think they'd be thrilled to hear that kind of request. I would be.

Tips, Tricks, and Troubleshooting (Kindle) / MP3 on my Kindle
« on: December 26, 2009, 04:36:44 PM »
I downloaded some music to my kindle (shows up in the file) but can't access MP3. I go to Experimental on the menu but cannot move the cursor down to MP3. Can anyone tell me how to find the music files on my Kindle? Thank you.

Tangiegirl, I am taking it down just to make sure I went through the first 75 quickly and found an extra 'a'. Since I won't see it on Kindle until XMas morning   ;) officially I can't comment on the indents. When I viewed it on the preview they give us for upload it looked fine. I suppose this is the shake out of the transition from traditional to E-publishing and I want to thank you so much for taking the time. I'll remove it and repost after taking a look at the file just to be postively sure. No other news this morning except baked cookies 'till midnight, woke up with a cold. Will see if eating said cookies this morning cures it. Thanks again.

Angel B. Thank you so much for the head's up. Will take it down and recheck it. Don't know if it's an old file but it should have been good. Much appreciated. Hope the others are okay!  I didn't know there were any reviews. Have a wonderful holiday. You have no idea how much I appreciate this.

Tangiegirl! Thank you and yes, Hostile is the first one. I especially like the teenage girl in it. Hopefully you will, too! I'm honored to be on your list.  Hope you have a very, very happy holiday!

KNBR - I don't know how you did that but I must say seeing my book covers really woke me up this morning. Thank you so much. I'll learn how to do that and return the favor to the next new author. Ann, thanks for the hints and tips. I'm not exactly sure what a bump is (I'm going to assume that means not posting something about my books too often). I think that's great there are guidelines.

R.Reed, LOL on the wrong side of Beverly Hills. I actually agree with you in terms of the higher in the hills you go. I was sort of talking in terms of if your business is sort of straddling the West LA line. I remember going to a party at this law office and thinking wow, a Beverly Hills high power firm. Turned out to be a very modest shared suite that needed a facelift. Funny where our ideas come from for stories.

Again, thanks everyone. There's another newbie here. I'll have to come back to look but welcome, too. I think this is going to be totally fun.

Wow, this is an active place!

DNAGIRL - I write legal thrillers so in my books you'd be an expert witness who solved the crime.I'd never make you evil - unless you wanted to be. I'm always amazed how many of my friends want to either be the victim or the evil judge!

Scarlet, thanks for asking. So far the ones I have up are:
Hostile Witness, Silent Witness and Privileged Witness (a series set in Hermosa Beach, CA just down the street from me)
Character Witness - not a part of that series and one I love especially because it was based on a very old attorney in Beverly Hills - the wrong side of Beverly Hills.
Seasons - one of my women's fiction books
 
I'm going to put up Before Her Eyes soon. I like tha tone because it's told in third and first person.

That's it for now. I'm just starting out putting my back list up.

Hi - R. Reed - going to check out your book now!

Okay, that got my imagination going! You would make a great character in a thriller. I worked in marketing before I started to write. Funny how I still think of myself as an advertising maven first. Guess first loves always hang around. Glad you're ready for the festivities. Tomorrow is my annual gift exchange. Always lively. That starts the season off for me!

Maureen, I especially love writers who like writers. We can all commiserate when things are low but boy can we celebrate when things are good! Love your cover! I've got to figure out how to do that. This seems so confusing but then again I felt the same way about computers and now....who can live without them?

Hello from a new Kindle Author!  I've published 24 novels the traditional way (one national bestseller and a couple local) and now I'm sticking my toe in the Kindle market! I'm so excited about this technology I bought my sons Kindles for Christmas. Looking forward to talking to readers who like writers - especially those who write legal thrillers!

Originally published in paperback, I recently posted some of my legal thrillers on Kindle (still waiting for one to be approved). I also published through Smashwords.com (all approved for Kindle downloads). Hope you'll take a look at some of my work(some of which have been best sellers in paperback) and visit me at Rebeccaforster.com.  I'm looking forward to talking to Kindle users. Boy, is this a brave new world! Thanks for letting me into your e-reading. Rebecca Forster
