Please join me in welcoming Pamela from Beachwalk Press for today. This new publishing house, is the new home for my reprint, The Cowgirl's Christmas.
Welcome Pamela, thanks so much for joining us.
First, I’d like to thank Patricia for giving me the opportunity to visit here today.
A little about myself: I started in this business as a romance author, several years later I moved into editing, and eventually became the managing editor for Lyrical Press. Now with the opening of Beachwalk Press, I’ve stepped into the publisher position.
Beachwalk Press is strictly a romance publisher. We publish all sub-genres of romance. Our books range in length from 15,000 words to 75,000 words. All of them have a rating of “sensual” or higher. We are currently publishing only eBooks, although we may eventually move into print publication.
At this time our books are available in five different formats: pdf (for Adobe Reader), lit (for Microsoft Reader), mobi (for Mobi and Kindle), epub (for Nook), and htlm. When you purchase a book at our website, you will be sent a zip file which contains each of these formats. In doing that we avoid any “I ordered X format by mistake and really need Y format” issues. In addition, if our customers later change the way in which they read eBooks (ie: they purchase a new/different reader) and need a different file type, they will have that different file type available.
Opening an epublishing company has been a dream of mine for years, and I’m incredibly excited about our grand opening. Our first books will be available for purchase on July 18th, and I hope you’ll visit our website at www.beachwalkpress.com and check out what we have to offer. You’ll find some great books by some very talented authors.
I’d also like to invite everyone to join us for our grand opening celebration. All throughout the month of July readers will be given chances to win prizes. The grand prize will be a new eReader.
