The new book release (Alizant) is still set for the 1st. For those of you who’ve never tried e-books, remember you and your printer can turn one of our e-books into paper. Just print out the pdf. Or use the html and your own word processor to convert it into any size format you like. [...]
…nicer e-books in some formats. Some of the older formats (RTF, TXT and others) have some problems (gappiness and not displaying graphics) that she believes she can resolve. We aren’t yet ready to undertake revision of all our books, since Jane deserves the time to get her own books up there, but it will happen. [...]
That would be Heavy Time, Hellburner, and the revised Faery Moon—which I hope will give improved function particularly in the PDF files, and some error correction in the others. I will advise if you are getting an update, KEEP your old files, against the probability that in patching the old mistakes I have made inventive [...]
1. pick a device. Your computer will do. Download the offered file and store it. It’s about the size, as Sweetbo pointed out, of an MP3 download.
2. unzip it: just click on it. You will find 11 types of files (I think.) Now…
3. go to our left sidebar and download both Mobipocket Reader [...]
…bearing in mind that some people visit once a week….
If any of you are hesitating, go for it. It’s a little slow in this incarnation: a 4.5 meg file for the first download. In the actual site, we will have that down to 1.5 if you are after a MiniMe file (mobi, pdf, ePub [...]
Sifting the various input, download difficulties due to the size of the file are posing a formidable challenge to some users on some systems. As a ‘gateway’ problem, this turns people away before we can get them through the door to help them with any other problems, so it concerns me.
I’m going to have [...]
This for those of you who’ve never done this…help and comments via questions are welcome.
On the left sidebar, find downloads called E-readers. The programs in question are: Calibre and Mobipocket Reader. Calibre is shareware (ie, would like a little donation), and will both read AND convert files, quite powerfully; Mobipocket is freeware, and just [...]
Awright! I refuse, absolutely refuse to admit what I forgot to do. Too many irons in the fire is my only excuse and even I’m not buying that. But the download should now work! If it doesn’t…wait ten minutes before telling me. I wanna go take a shower! —>J
THE BUTTON ISN”T WORKING YET: WE [...]
Mine: I like my laptop. I live with it. And it has color, as well as pretty clear screens. I can also read it in the dark: I understand the eInk screens require an external light source just like paper. As I get older, my eyes get worse for close work, and my need for [...]
The actual launch of Closed Circle is getting close enough I’m going to spend time this evening actually assembling several e-books, notably Faery in Shadow and The Writing Life: A Writer’s Journal vol 1-3. Those will be the first out. Rusalka is ready, but Jane is not ready to do the cover yet. She’s prepping [...]
