When I started Stillpoint Digital Press, my intention was to focus on the growing field of ebook production and distribution.

I need your help!
So I’ve been working away to prepare The Seven Gods of Luck for simultaneous release as an ebook, a paperback, and an audiobook. Great fun! It’s almost ready…

Today, a packed house at Folio 949 listened to him read from his newly-published memoir, Sail Away: Journeys of a Merchant Seaman and then lined up to have the “young. aspiring author” (as he described himself) read from his book of memories about the time that he served as a member of the US Merchant Marine from early in World War II through the Korean War.

The Human Face of Digital Publishing
The ebook explosion has promised a new relationship between authors and their readers—one that is more immediate and personal. And yet writers looking to take advantage of this new medium find themselves in a familiar bind: either seek to publish through a traditional publisher and receive pennies on the dollar, self-publish, or use a service that is happy to publish your book for you (for either a fee or a percentage of sales)–but without providing any editorial services.
Stillpoint Digital Press is an ebook publisher that provides a human touch. We are an experienced publisher of electronic and print books, ready to help you convert your manuscript or your print volume (whether in- or out-of-print) into a vibrant, exciting digital book. We will help you edit, create a cover, design, and sell your book.

It’s still in the early stages, but I’d love you to check it out and tell me what you think!
So, I’m creating a new website. And it’s got blogs and stuff. And I thought I’d crosslink it to my Livejournal (and thence, hopefully, to my Facebook account.)
Why, you ask?
I can’t tell you yet. But I will. Soon. I promise. 🙂
