Introducing the Dracula Hearts Series by A.J. Gallant

By Wrp68, published on Apr 6, 2012

Dracula: Hearts of Stone

A tale of magic, romance and fangs. This adventure is sprinkled with humor.

This MIGHT be a little like Dracula if written by J. K. Rowling. It’s a place where magic and vampires interweave for an exciting adventure.

Oh yes, and a pinch of mirth. Stir lovingly and you have a new novel by A. J. Gallant. If it sounds like the recipe for you then you must read Dracula:... (more)

The real cost of the 99 cent ebook?

By Donna Brown, published on Sep 24, 2011

I have nothing against 99 cent ebooks. I’ve bought them, I’ve read them and I appreciate that now it is easier than ever for authors to put their work out there and so pricing is at an all time low. Whether books are priced $0.99, $2.99 or $4.99, it’s hardly a financial risk to try something different and when you can get 100 titles on your Kindle or Nook for a couple of hundred dollars instead of a thousand dollars, that has to be something to smile about.

However, I saw something this week that really made me wonder if the true cost of 99 cent ebooks is not in the sales they – allegedly... (more)

Towards An Ebook Future

By Gurmeet Mattu, published on Jan 11, 2010

... the POD people can print as little as one copy at a time.There are companies on the internet who will allow you to self publish with POD but they charge you an arm and a leg and you're still cutting down forests for the paper, even if the remainders bins are abolished.

Secondly there are ebooks, which again haven't really taken off because we're tied to the concept of a book we can hold in our hand.
