It took a little extra time for me to ensure my books are available on the Nook platform, but they’re all on their way. As of now, all of the books I published in 2017 should be available in print (on Amazon or Etsy), on Kindle, and now, on Nook, too! This makes my best friend especially happy, since she uses a Nook (so do I).
I’m working on ensuring older books are also available on Nook, but I no longer have the manuscript for My Name Was Indigo, and will have to retype it by hand. It’ll probably be a while before I get around to it.
That being said, the biggest challenge was formatting. Their manuscript editor is fairly simple to use, but where the Kindle links to anything tagged as a “header” and creates an automatic internal link in the file per heading, Nook relies on section breaks, which I rarely use in my manuscripts. Though it took several hours over the last few days to go through each of six manuscripts, I’ve managed to format them in what I hope will be an easily navigable way. I gave most of my attention to The Grasp of Time and Perdition, for obvious reasons.
If you prefer Nook to Kindle, here are the links for this year’s titles:
Tomorrow is Black Friday, a day when I tend to hide at home and avoid spending money on anything but essentials (e.g. medicine, pet food, etc.), and only if we’ve run out. I encourage anyone* who shops on the biggest consumerist holiday of the year to consider small, local businesses, or independent artisans. Offer reparations to indigenous individuals who are helping their communities during this Native Day of Mourning (a.k.a. Thanksgiving). And while I’d love for you to buy my books, I’d love it even more if you didn’t buy them Friday–they won’t be on sale, anyway. Any of the other 364 days? Go for it.
*EDIT: Having been homeless, and a single mother dependent on food stamps and TANF, I know that for many, Black Friday is the only day of the year certain goods are affordable enough to buy. There is no shame in shopping on this day. There is no shame in being poor. There is however shame in for those who are the corporate and political drivers of poverty that lead to this being the only day where a majority of people in the U.S. can buy goods, some of which may be essential to basic living.
