Dylan’s Thoughts

It wasn’t a quiet month at Broken Typewriter Press, but nothing that we can really show off.

The silliest is that we picked up a vanity domain at broken.typewriter.press. Almost everything is working but HTTPS on the store isn’t quite working. But everything else should be happily chugging alone. It’s a minor thing, but we really like the three-part names (most of our coupons use the same type of code).

Tales of Whimsy is almost in the final steps for getting an ISBN assigned to it so it can be ordered at any bookstore. This means the price for the print version will be going up, so if you are interested in picking up a copy (signed or not) before the price increases, this is the best time to do it. Sadly, the price increase is a required part of selling books in bookstores.

We also have two books that are in the process of being published. The first is D. Moonfire’s Sand and Ash. This is a Creative Commons license book which means that the ebook will be free but we’ll be charging for the print version. We’ll also be setting up a tip jar for him, if you like the book donate or consider becoming a patron for a month or so and see all the project he’s been working on.

The other book is a paranormal romance/horror. We don’t have final approvals, so we aren’t giving names quite yet. Maybe next month we’ll have a new author for our spotlight.
