Pronoun’s shutting down and I’m feeling Faint

Pronoun was a great self publishing resource that was run by McMillan, the publishing company.  It offered great terms for authors, a top notch interface, and awesome distribution.  I’m sad to see it closing because it worked so well.

It came as something of a shock.  The other day I logged into my email, and there it was – the notification.  I definitely had a sinking feeling when seeing that.  On the bright side, though, I know a lot more about eBooks than I used to.

Now I’ll have to migrate my books over to Amazon or some other service, and also do the same for my father’s stuff that we published together.  I’ll now be dealing with multiple editions as well, since there will be a Pronoun edition as well as an Amazon edition.  I’m sure I’ll find a way with deal with it but it’s still a big pain in the neck.

If anyone out there wants the scoop on what’s happening, here’s a link to the FAQ.  Pronoun is staying open till after the holidays so authors can finish up any sales they might have going.

It’s too bad, really, and I’ll miss the service.

Peeking Feline

Do I peek through the supplies and canned goods at Nezumi-chan?

Or does Nezumi-chan peek back at me?

Here’s a hole in my backyard I like to peek through… lizards often live there.

Speaking of backyards, here’s a peek at the mountains through pine trees…

I peeked through my zoom lens to capture this avian kerfluffle from across the parking lot.

Here they are again as I peek under this truck.

This is what they look like when I’m not peeking quite so much.

It seems that for me, at least, peeking leads to lower quality pictures but still I find them interesting to look at.

(Guitar Update:   Guitar Sensei has me working on some basic finger patterns on the fretboard.  I’m still at the getting-to-know-you stage.  I have the self assigned task of learn to get from C to G chord and back again.  My fingers are a lot tougher than they were.  I can do scales pretty well too.  I’m still settling down to my favorite kind of pick, and I find practicing standing up easier than practicing sitting down.)
