The last couple months have seen a nice uptick in downloads of the electronic version of "Crossing Decembers" over at Wowio, so naturally, that's when things come to a screeching halt: Seems there's something a-brewing with the company and we'll see what happens. Global availability would be nice, naturally - Wowio's U.S.-restricted distribution earned it some flak - but I don't know how this will affect author contracts or compensation.
(The book's also still available through Lulu.com - where, incidentally, I recently discovered this incredibly nice note in a review from a complete stranger: "It has one of the strongest opening paragraphs I've ever heard, a great name, and a very inviting concept." )
In the meantime, I'll be offering "Crossing Decembers" via email in PDF format through my own site, for a piddling buck-fifty, which I'll gladly apply toward a subsequent purchase of the print edition. (Yeah, I know some pretty prominent authors give away e-versions free. For me, that's not an option right now.)
Here's hoping Wowio comes back sporting a popularity jetpack.
