The main rationale behind starting this enterprise is to backstop the release of the e-book versions of my many fine novels. I expect these releases to take place over the next year or so. (Of course, this place also gives me a forum for my many fine opinions about various things — stop by often to find out what they are! I’ll be interested in finding out what they are myself.)
I’m starting off my e-pub career with Summit, which should be available in a few weeks. Why Summit? I’ve been asked. The answer, I think, is that its mainstream publisher left it exposed on a hillside to die shortly after its birth — not through any fault of its own, but because its older brother, Dover Beach, hadn’t met Bantam’s high sales expectations. It was published, but with no attempt to market it, no attempt to solicit reviews . . . So this is something of a rescue effort.
Here’s what Summit looked like:
More on Summit to come.
