A time and a place for everything…

May 26th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

…and therefore I will spare you the extensive rant about the 15 zillion different e-book formats. Suffice to say, I don’t think we have the time to produce a copy of each issue in enough formats to work on every portable device. So it looks like we’ll be offering 3 digital versions: for the Kindle, as a .PDF, and as a .prc (.prc is formatted for mobiles via mobipocket. Click the link for a list of supported platforms, one of which is Blackberry.). If we get enough specific requests for certain formats we may consider them as well.

By the way, I’ve received a few queries about Kindle subscriptions to CG. I am looking into it, but I’m running into 2 problems: 1) I’m not sure how to coordinate those subscriptions with the subscriptions to the Subscribers Area on the website, and 2) Amazon/Kindle hasn’t deigned to respond to my emails. If anything new comes up I’ll let you know.

Most months around this time, I sit down and make a list of every little detail left to deal with before Release Day arrives. I did that today, and then set about whittling it down. I did some formatting of images for the online release, did a bit of Project Wonderful work, created a new email address on our site and did some prep for an upcoming contest.

What’s that? A contest? Yup, we’re going to have a Flash Fiction contest in June! We’ll make an announcement with details tomorrow. Also coming up shortly: a sale! Info on that tomorrow too.
