    my first novel is released

    for those that don't know... http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005012AAC A man attends a social media event in real life and ends up dead. The detectives are drawn into this new digital frontier and discover they must use social media to solve the murder. In this world everything is instant, online personas don't match their real life counterparts, characters are created and lies are told. In this unravelling mystery it appears death is the only certainty. This is neo noir. A classic detective novel set in a world that we have never seen before. Where technology keeps us constantly connected and our lives are broadcast instantly to the world. Its current, relevant and required reading for those who know nothing about social media, and for those who are completely addicted. You can get it on the kindle.. and if you get the kindle app you can also get it on iPad, iPhone, Android, PC & MAC

    any plans for the ibook store? I can use the kindle app on my ipad as well, just through I would ask how difficult it was to get the book up there, and who you went through (since I would like my book there as well) (in the iBook store, I know how to do the kindle one)

    there we go, just right. keep walking...

    Congrats as well. I personally know the amount of time and sweat that goes into writing, editing, and getting a book ready for everything.

    Congratulations! That's awesome! Any idea if it's going to be in the Sony Reader store?
    I just don't end up where think I'm going when I start out.

    I know you can get it on the iBookstore if you use lulu.com but If you use them you only get 55% of the sale.. I'm still deciding whether I want to use that or not..I think they put it on sony ereader as well Chris.. If I did put it on ibookstore it would be a lot more expensive than the $3 for the kindle. Yeah Harm over a year in the making!

    Its terrible that the royalties vary so greatly from service to service

    The royalty thing sucks, and some services are shite, but think of it this way... if you only offer it through Amazon because you get more profit, then only a certain percentage of people can buy it. You're cutting out chunks of the market when you could take a "oh well, some money is better than no money" approach. Just sayin'.

    I don't know who this Wordof Mouth guy is, but if there are lots of people who can give you access to him, he must be important!

    Any plans for a physical edition? I work for a social media agency and would love to have it on site.
    I'm not signing this without my lawyer.
