Petro Queen - Trade Paperback

Petrol Queen
In addition to my novel Petrol Queen being available for Kindle, it is now out in trade paperback on Amazon.

I found uploading my fiction to Smashwords and Amazon for ebook a relatively simple task…while the learning curve for POD was frustrating at first. I wanted to tear my hair out getting the formatting correct. More than a few hours involved. But now that I’ve got it figured out, it’ll be easier from here on out. The advantage is, once you get it right on paper it stays that way. With ereaders it changes slightly from device to device. But all in all, getting Petrol Queen out on trade paperback was a hellava lot of fun. My own copy just arrived and it’s rather cool reading it like a…book!

Congrats, Marshall! Are you planning on sending copies out to indie reviewers?

Thanks, Kurt!

If you mean a TP copy, I'm unsure. As a last resort. Actually, I don't expect to sell many TP compared to the ebook version. From what I've read, the ratio is 100 to 1. I'm mostly putting this out in paperback for a very few who might want one, and because it's a rather fun project.

I just meant in general, as a means of promotion. I imagine that most reviewers these days prefer e-books rather than hard copies, although there might be a few old school readers who still insist on having paper in hand.
