New Kindle eBook “Here’s Why: I Voted for Obama, I Voted for Romney, None of Above” Invites Readers to Write Their Own Chapter in a “Living” or “Open Book” Concept


Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) February 05, 2013

“Here’s Why: I Voted for Obama, I Voted for Romney, None of Above,” just published as a Kindle eBook by Granny Apple Publishing LLC, is not meant to stir the coals of the great political divide among voters in the United States. Nor is it intended to question or challenge the 2012 presidential election.

Instead, author Janet Verdeguer believes that by reading the thoughtful comments of others, people will better understand what is really going on in the hearts and minds of their fellow Americans. Since they can read this eBook in the privacy and comfort of their living rooms or the nearest Starbucks, they won’t get into heated arguments with friends and family members, but instead can reflect on what people from the other side are really thinking.

“People are also tired of listening to pundits on radio or TV who many feel led them astray this election.”

“Here’s Why” is an eBook invitation for people to send their reasons. The first edition already includes comments from people in their ’40s to their ’80s, divided by chapters into these age groups.

Those who wish to submit should include two or three main reasons they voted for Obama or Romney and two or three main reasons they did not vote for the other guy. Those who did not vote or who voted for another candidate are also welcome to share their opinions..

Granny Apple Publishing and the author reserve the right to make minor edits for consistency of style and to determine which comments will be published. Janet Verdeguer, an award-winning editor and publisher with more than 30 years experience in the field, will edit the submissions and re-issue the book each time she receives 25 or more opinions.

The eBook is currently priced at $ .99 to make it widely available to voters everywhere. Everyone whose comments are included in the published eBook will receive a free copy of the updated version in which their comments appear. Comments should be emailed or snail mailed to Granny Apple Publishing. “By the act of sending in their comments, each person is automatically granting permission for Granny Apple to publish them,” says Verdeguer.

“Since the election, I have considered that, maybe, because the majority of folks seem to disagree with me, some of my thinking needs to change. I plan to read and re-read these comments from folks across the USA and do some soul searching. I encourage others to open their minds and do the same.

“At the least I am convinced that many of the leaders on the Right do not have a clue about what is really going on in peoples hearts and minds. And I am also convinced that many voters on the Left cant get beyond the groupthink that they seem to have imbedded in their subconscious minds that Conservatism is a dirty word. I believe this mindset prevents them from considering the reasons why lots of people are concerned about the direction the country is taking. I am already impressed by the quality and thoughtfulness of comments I have received from both sides.

“I believe that if people on all sides read this series of thoughts, opinions and ideas, it will help them better understand each other.

“The concept of having 25 new comments added with every update will make this truly a ‘living book,’ as the years go by. I sincerely hope this book helps everyone.”

Granny Apple Publishing is a micro publisher located in Sarasota, Florida. For more information or to make a submission, contact Janet Verdeguer, Granny Apple Publishing LLC, 4602 Talbot Place, Sarasota, FL 34241 or email janet@GrannyApplePublishing.com

Self Publishing Podcast Helps Writers Achieve Their Publication Dreams in the High-Potential Kindle and eBook Age


Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) May 07, 2012

Self publishing is accessible to everyone, and the podcast helps savvy, hard-working writers learn how they can make full-time livings from fiction to nonfiction something that was close to impossible before the eBook age.

Digital publishing, through Kindle and other e-formats, hasnt just revolutionized self publishing; its revolutionized all publishing, said Truant. Even established authors are now turning to this model and away from old-school publishing deals. And why not? Traditional publishers pay authors around 15% of a books sale price and hardly do any publicity, widespread distribution, or marketing for anyone other than their blockbuster clients. If those publishers are really only adding overhead, why not do it yourself? Why not build your own audience, spread the word yourself through the tools available on the Internet, and make 70% royalties while retaining total creative control?

The trio launched the new podcast, located at SelfPublishingPodcast.com, in mid April. Born from a desire to help others achieve the success they were achieving themselves, Wright, Platt, and Truant decided a weekly podcast packed with advice, best practices, and interviews with experts would help others avoid the trial and error theyd had when publishing their own work primarily on Amazons Kindle e-Book platform, but also on others like Barnes & Nobles Nook Store and the Kobo platform, which is popular in Europe.

Self-publishing used to be expensive and ineffective, but also relatively straightforward, said Wright. You paid someone to publish your books, you stored them in your garage, and then you traveled around and tried to sell them. Its completely different today. The best platforms are digital. Anyone can publish with very little out-of-pocket expense and be exposed instantly to millions of potential buyers. But now its trickier too, and youll never sell to those millions if you dont put the pieces together correctly.

The Self Publishing Podcast, which publishes new episodes every Thursday, covers topics such as how to get started, how to make a compelling book cover, how to market your book, writing and editing tips, how to format for different platforms, and much more. Its peppered with Truant, Wright and Platts trademark wit and friendly camaraderie. Its available on the iTunes, Blackberry and Zune podcast directory, as well as non-subscription play through the website at SelfPublishingPodcast.com.

Johnny B. Truant has a large readership on his blog at JohnnyBTruant.com and writes regularly for 100,000+ subscriber blogs like Copyblogger.com and Problogger.com. Platt also writes for the same blogs, and is founder of The Digital Writer. Both are known as marketing experts in the blogging niche. Professional cartoonist and blogger Wright rounds out the podcasts hosts.

Wright and Platt self-publish several books each week through their publishing companies Collective Inkwell and Sterling & Stone, including their own extremely popular post-apocalyptic horror serial Yesterdays Gone, which is one of the Top 100 Reviewed Amazon Fiction Titles of all time. Truants humor novel The Bialy Pimps debuted in a splash through blog publicity in February. Hes also the author of the Epic Series, a series of personal development and human potential essays that hit #3 on the Amazon free list for Entrepreneurship.

This is a brave new frontier, said Platt. The good news is that any good writer can now make a full-time living purely as a writer, but you must first nderstand how to make it work in order for that to happen. Thats why we started this podcast to help writers understand, and to finally realize their dreams of publication.

Breakout Writers Swinging For Their Next Self Publishing Home Run With The Young Adult Paranormal Series ForNevermore (And Free Ebook!)


Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) April 17, 2012

Authors Sean Platt and David W. Wright have already proven that weekly serialization works to drive sales and please readers with their post-apocalyptic serial Yesterdays Gone, which has generated impressive sales and over 200 5-Star reviews. Now the duo is aiming for more self publishing success with their first entry into the young adult paranormal/dark fantasy genres.

Audiences who loved The Hunger Games and Twilight will love Platt and Wright’s recently released first season of their serial, ForNevermore.

Readers who want to sample the story can get the first episode of the series free at Amazon April 17-19 2012. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007EEF3TS/

We wanted to write something that captured the magic and misery of being young, trying to find your place, and not fitting in anywhere, said Platt, who described ForNevermore as a darkly romantic fantasy horror.

ForNevermore tells the story of Noella Snow, a 17 year old who lives in two worlds. The real world where her parents are dead and she lives with her aunt in upstate New York, then her dreamworld where her father is still alive, and shes watched over by Dante, a mysterious man with a deadly touch.

As her 17th birthday approaches, Noellas dream world begins to bleed into her real world, and she starts hearing voices and seeing monsters that cant possibly be real. As Death comes to claim her, Dante saves her, saying not only is he real, but he has watched over her for hundreds of years.

Is she losing her mind? Will he have to return to Kings Point Psychiatric Hospital?

Dont let the young adult tag fool you. This is a deep, dark story, said Wright. The only thing separating this story-wise from our other fiction is a lack of sex and the language is PG-13. But the scares, plot twists, and crazy cliffhanger endings our readers love are all there! We love how the first season turned out in its weekly form, and are thrilled to publish the full season.

Platt and Wright are looking to become Kings of the Serial this year with a publishing schedule of one book, short story, or episode per week in 2012. They treat their serials like TV shows, writing in six week blocks, with each episode ranging from 11,000 to 25,000 words in length. Each episode sells for .99 during its season. After all six episodes of a given season are out, they compile all six episodes into a Season Compilation, which sells in one low-priced book.

The duo says that offering readers a choice of either buying the serials in weekly doses or waiting for the whole season book has been one of the keys to their success.

Yesterdays Gone: Season Two returned in January for its second smash season, running six straight weeks into February. They followed with the debut of ForNevermore in February. Theyll be returning to adult horror with their newest series, WhiteSpace, a sci-fi horror serial, on May 1.

You know how HBO, Showtime, and AMC all have awesome must-see TV week after week? We want to be the HBO, Showtime, or AMC of the Kindle world, where no matter what, you know well have something awesome for you, every Tuesday, said Platt.
