Ka-Blam workin' on ICBW

I think everybody here knows Ka-Blam. They're working to get the books printed with them into the stores for the ICBW. I'm very excited to see how that turns out, especially this year.

I've been so far away from traditional distribution I've not been paying a lot of attention to anything it's doing these days. Sometimes my frustration gets away form me when attempting to explain things to people responsible for making them work. Some brick store people go ballistic under the real threat to their markets posed by the internet.

Here's something that can help both sides; the more an author can produce, the more books a bookstore can sell. That's all that really matters. Anything else is nuts and bolts. An author needs WWID systems ("work when I'm Dead" = automatic).

Anyway, when it comes to publishing I could bore for England (some victims out there can vouch for that). I'm going to go figure out how to make ICBW work for A Fine Line Press, and vice versa, even though I'm using the new systems.

It WILL happen.
