Including My Backlist! by DL Larson

Thanks to some very talented people, Morgan Mandel, Steve Walker and my daughter Amber Kenney, I am nearly ready for the e-book world of publishing!

This is my new book cover for my first book, Memories Trail, Part One.  It is a love story/war story set in the midst of the War of 1812.  If you enjoy history and a tight plot of family strife and commitment, perhaps you'll enjoy this.

The blurb:
'Three people united in passion and purpose are torn apart by the devastation of war.  Dominion over the wilderness beyond the frontier threatens all they believe in.'

Part One is now available on Smashwords - I hope! I'm still struggling with some epubcheck issues that are worse than gremlins.
Any advice, I would love to hear them.  I've gone over all their suggestions and have 2 itty bitty issues that will not resolve themselves.  So I'm afraid my book may be in limbo a bit longer for those with an Apple apparatus.

Here is Memories Trail, Part Two, the conclusion of the love story/war story with Will and Elizabeth and their Shawnee friend, Tecumseh.  Tecumseh was a real person in the War of 1812.  His goal was to have a united Indian Nation.  He was a prophet and predicted many, many things that came true - one of them being an earthquake in what we consider the midwest. 

If you follow this address: http://www.smashwords.com/ it will take you to my books.  I've priced them at $2.99 each.  I'd love to hear advice on that as well.  I'm not ready to give my work away for free, but you can read 20% free to see if you would like to purchase it.  I felt that was a good compromise.

My second Book, Promises To Keep, will soon be available in ebook too.  It's a work in progress!

My new book, Promises My Love, is available in ebook at Amazon.http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=Promises+My+Love%2C+DL+Larson#/ref=sr_hi_eb?rh=k%3APromises+My+Love\c%2Cn%3A283155&ie=UTF8&qid=1370616029&keyword=Promises+My+Love%2C   I sure hope I did that right - or everyone will know how enept I am with technology!

So tell me, how are you fairing in the ebook world?  Are you selling more? Enjoying being responsible for your own fate? 

Share with us. 

Til next time ~

Those covers are gorgeous! Definitely eye-catching...well done!

I'm with a publisher, but I do find that my e sales are much higher than my print sales. Now granted, my last two stories have only been ebooks, but even the ones available in both formats do better electronically.
