Review of Signing
The signing went fairly well.  All told 5 copies of the book were sold.  This was an invitation only signing, and many had graduations and such to attend that day.  But still good fun and nice treats!
 Thanks to the Library for allowing me to have the signing there.

Gossip Section

If you venture off to,, or any other online bookstore except Publish America's, you might notice one thing....Beyond the Loop is nowhere in sight!  The reason?  Publish America has currently switched wholesale providers for their books, from Ingram to Baker and Taylor exclusively.  This change has taken months to apply due to the large volume of books the publisher boasts (over 40,000 total).  So, for now, Beyond the Loop will not be available on most online stores until the process has been completed.  However, the Publish America online bookstore has tons of the book available and is constantly offering discounts for those who are interested.

Beyond the Loop has been setup for iPad formatting.  That means if you own an iPad, you can purchase the electronic copy of Beyond the Loop or The Civilization Loop and read it on your new iPad.  You can purchase a copy of the iPad version from the Publish America book store online.

Teaser Tuesday
