bored post title

… because I don’t know what to call it.

Yesterday we said good-bye to one member of my offline writers group who goes back to the US. Sniff. For me it’s one more friend to visit in NYC, but it’s a loss for the group. Let’s hope we’ll find new members soon! šŸ˜‰

Also I had a look at both a Kindle and an i-Pad (one of our writers is Mac-addicted). The Kindle looks indeed better for reading, but the i-Pad has colors and does more graphic things and… ARGH! I’ll never make up my mind! šŸ˜¦

I uploaded a few more titles on FeedBooks. It looked harder from their explanations, but in fact it’s quite easy, especially with short stories. I probably won’t be able to upload comics like I did on Smashwords, but you can’t have it all! šŸ™‚

I’m reading, hoping to get a review out tomorrow. If not, I hope to have an author interview. Sorry I’m not coming to your awesome blogs, but hopefully during the weekend I’ll have to time to have a look! šŸ™‚ Water is off to the editor, Soul Stealers to the beta-reader.

I’m writing this Wednesday at 9pm, so I better go back to reading now… I wanted to watch a movie, but NO! not until I finish that book and review it – the Smashwords kindly reminder is way overdue! šŸ™‚

And Thursday looks like a messy day, even it the public transport strike is revoked, so wish me luck with the working day… Hopefully in the afternoon I’ll get my parcel from Italy (yeah, I even bought 6 dead-tree Italian books, sigh!), then I’ll only have to wait for the last Amazon parcel with the 3 DVDs and the Lulu parcel with printed copies of Fire, so I can check it and make it live on Lulu…

Can I feel tired for five minutes? I’ll be back to my usual self with next post, promised! šŸ˜€

    Yes, you’re allowed to be tired for five minutes! I seem to spend my life feeling tired! Just wanted to say that Kindles are my choice, because they are kind on the eyes. I-pads are backlit like computer monitors and very eye-straining. Having said that, it’s true that they have nicer graphics and colour etc. But I LOVE my kindle. šŸ™‚


    • Thanks, Nik! šŸ™‚
      I’ll probably end up buying a Kindle also because it’s CHEAPER!!! šŸ˜€
      Hey, I’m not Amanda Hocking yet, I’ll buy the i-Pad when my royalties exceed the expenses! šŸ˜‰

    The Kindle was my best choice from the possibles; but for all of them the technology is still intermediate and will be superceded very soon.
    But the sheer convenience is amazing and one thing I’d never bargained on is that I can read it in a moving vehicle(remember, a lot of my working life is on a coach) without getting sick.
    There are things to be improved and things that can be added. I saw a light designed for an e-reader, that looked good, except it was over 20 quid to buy.


    • I was wondering how it would be reading on a moving vehicle! šŸ˜€ I go to work either on foot or by public transport, and my bus doesn’t come very often… so I have lots of waiting times I could probably use reading… thanks for the tip! šŸ™‚


  3. I went for Kindle, too, because it was cheaper and I like Amazon. I’ve been quite happy with it so far. šŸ™‚


  4. I like Amazon too, and now we even have Amazon Italia, although I haven’t checked the price there… but they might do the “free shipping” thingy from there! šŸ˜‰
