I have had questions about the editions of my books. There are two versions available, an eBook version which you can get >HERE< for "The Boy in The Wood" or the paperback >HERE< for "The Boy in The Wood".
"David's mark" also comes in two versions; the eBook >HERE< or the paperback for "David's mark" >HERE<.
You can use the eBook version on any tablet, I have another post describing how for the iPad or iPhone and all Android devices.
I hear this a lot with my eBook versions. In truth all tables and read Kindle books.
If using an iPad goto the Apple App store and find the Kindle app. Donwload and install then log into your Amazon.com account. If you do not have an Amazon.com account you will need to goto Amazon.com and create one. One you install the Kindle App on your iPad and log in Amazon will "register" your device and you can then purchase Kindle eBooks and sync them to your iPad.
Use the same method for any Android device. Goto the Google Store and find the Kindle App if not pre-installed. Download it and install it. Log into your Amazon.com account and sync the eBooks you bought, like above.
Q: Why did you publish both of your first books indie?
A: It all goes back to 1985. We had an assignment in Creative Writing class and my teacher Mrs. Bryant had invited a journalist student from Tulsa to spend the day in class with us students. The journalist collage student had issues with pride, and she was never wring about anything.
I was not looking forward to her coming to my desk. When she did I hid my work, not out of shame, but out of preservation. Mrs. Bryant FORCED me to show her my work. She took my personal account that I wrote at age 17 about an event from my childhood and made it hers. I was dumbfounded. I asked it not to be published in that years magazine, Mrs. Bryant did so anyway, but under a pen name. From that day forward I viewed publishing editors as the same, although I know it is unjustified.
Later I sent in some of my poems and got a similar reaction, not that I was not good, but they felt the changes they offered would be better.
In the end, I'm not afraid of rejection, I just do not like my work becoming someone's else. Granted I understand the need for an editor to offer suggestions and corrections to your work. My present editor offered a lot with "David's mark" and most were taken, even though painful because I knew he was right. So it is not pride or fear that I went indie, it was an act of preserving my art.
