Beyond the Book Publishing: Unbalanced by Kate Douglas
I've been reading bits and pieces all over the web about a new publishing service, Beyond the Book.
And when I read things like this, my initial author instincts kick in and I'm curious, and then my next instinct is to buy one of the books Beyond the Book is publishing and see what it's like.
So as soon as I finish this blog post, I'm ordering "Unbalanced," by Kate Douglas over at Kobo. (I still haven't had time to figure out that "dropbox" thing I posted about earlier this week, and don't see much free time in the future, so for now it's push a button and order from Kobo.) Unbalanced is a .99 e-book and you can't go wrong there. (I love .99 e-books more than I love the new Baccarat lamp I just ordered from my brother...at a discount...because he's a designer in New York.)And from what I've read, Kate Douglas has a long list of excellent publishing credits. I've read her thoughts on various comment threads, and she sounds like a nice person, too.
I'll post more about the book when I finish it. I don't give actual reviews here on this blog, but I don't have any problem commenting on whether or not I like a book...in a general sense...or leaving ratings on goodreads and amazon.
And frankly, after reading so much about Beyond the Book and the publishing services it offers, I'm curious to see exactly what kind of book they are putting out.
