Query is good. Agent I want to query, I can't because he edited my book once before he was an agent. =( Hoping to find gold on #MSWL today on Twitter

Every time I listen to Stahlmann I want to work on a particular novel series of mine. If only I had the time... =(

    Good luck and congrats! The query is the hardest part of all, IMO.

It's been so long since I've been on here. How is everyone? How's writing?

    WB, I'm not writing a lot, myself. Between two jobs, I don't have the time I want for writing nor art, which makes me sad since those are two favorite things in the world. I really need a new job. =/

Has anyone else published their stiff on iBooks? Is it just me or is it just utterly un-user friendly?

    I used Smashwords for the first two, then I learned how to convert to epub myself. But I hired someone with a Mac to upload it to ibooks for me. So far so good.

    It is very difficult, indeed. Personally, we think it's worth it if you are in this for the long term. Apple only promotes authors who publish direct with them, and it's very important to be able to control your own book's category selection and change it on a dime -- if need be. That said, if you really can't make it happen, we've heard much better things about D2D over Smashwords. Good luck.
