Called CIGNA this afternoon, explained the problem and got it taken care of in less time than it had taken to navigate the phone tree and actually reach a live human. Thank you, Brittany; it is rare and bright and very welcome, to find something that was easier to do than I had feared.
Moving on with the evening’s work, I compiled and uploaded Duty Bound: Adventures in the Liaden Universe® Number Three (copyright date: December 3, 1999. Um, eek.), and Shadows and Shades: AitLU Number Eight.
The electrifying project has really brought home how long we’ve been doing this writing thing — and I’m only dealing with work from the First Rebirth — and how much we’ve written. Yeah, it’s taken us dern near 30 years (with, yanno, a ten-year gap in the middle), but still — that’s an impressive little mountain of words we’ve got here.
Probably no echapbooks uploaded tomorrow — we have class — but my intent is to see this thing done. We’ve uploaded fourteen; only — what? — eleven? twelve? more to go? Piece o’cake.
After we get the existing paper chapbooks in the Kindle and Nook stores, then we’ll start expanding our distribution base. It remains Highly Improbable that these books will be offered at Webscriptions. This is why. Remember that Nook = epub and Kindle = mobi, and that we are making the electronic chapbooks available DRM-free.
And now, it’s time for lunch.
