On 'epublishing is all totally sucky'
If any of the following epublishers close within the next five years I will donate $50 to the black-footed ferret conservation people: Ellora's Cave, Loose Id, Samhain Press. Anyone want to take me up on the bet to ensure the ferrets get paid whatever the outcome?

On the Happy-ometer
Come on guys. Just answer this question with a yes or no for any epublisher you have released a book with: I am satisfied with the performance of [name of publisher]. All I will post is percent satisfaction based on 10 responses or more.

On the EREC postcards
No, I haven't had them printed yet. My records are a bit of a mess again. If any of the artists have not been paid in full please email me.

On the postcards again, sorta (or somewhere to take them)
I am trying to find some time in the second half of the year to go to a convention. I need to book my holiday time now. Any recommendations?

Oh and by the way....
I have major dental surgery coming up and need a really good feel-good confort book to console myself afterwards. Any recommendations? Any genre considers but ultra cute non-alpha male characters appreciated.

To add to your list, I would honestly be very shocked if either Amber Quill Press or Liquid Silver Books closes their doors in the next 5 years.

I am extremely happy with the performance of:
Samhain Press
Amber Quill Press
Liquid Silver Books

The boys in our Brindisi Bedfellows of both cute and non-alpha males. Yeah, that was a shameless plug. I feel good about that.

Oh dear, that just conjured up an image of a promotion butt plug. I wonder if anyone makes ones you can put a logo on?

Pepper Espinoza 8:08 PM  

Well, if they don't make one, they should.

I've been with Amber Quill Press for over two years now and I'm happy with them. They're not flashy, but they get the job done.

Jules Jones 4:33 AM  

Still happy with Loose Id...

I'd take that bet, but I'm broke at the moment, but like Darlene and Pepper would have to add Amber Quill to the list

As a reader, I'm very happy with the performance of Cobblestone Press. Happy, but not as estatic over the performance of Amber Quill and Ellora's Cave.

Good luck with the surgery.

I can say I'm not only happy, but thrilled with the Amber Quill / Amber Allure / Amber Heat folks. Not even my NY publishers treat me as pleasantly or as professionally as the owners and staff do at AQP. That was a definite shock to my jaded system when I had my first e-book published. I admit I feared the worst, but I somehow think I stumbled upon one of the best.

I'm very pleased with my experience at Loose Id.

You know our tastes in lead males differ so I can't suggest any reading material for the dentist's office, so I will send you some good juju vibes instead. I have never had a cavity in my life, yet was just diagonsed yesterday with periodontal disease and some minor bone loss going in on in my molar sockets. But hey, no cavities! :P

Emily Veinglory 12:23 PM  

My ongoing dental adventure is likely to include 7 fillings, one potentially a root canal, and removal of a wisdom tooth that is wedged between another tooth and a major nerve and will involve a surgeon.

Joy.

I'm very happy with Loose Id.

I'm happy with EC, and the ladies at Loose Id are some of the best in the business.

Fae Sutherland 5:04 PM  

I'm very happy with EC. Is there something higher than happy? Cause that'd be me. Me + EC = OTP

I have no idea if I've sent this for the Happy-ometer yet, I don't think so. So please count this vote!

:sending all sorts of positive energy (aka juju) to emily:

Katrina, no cavities, huh? I would hate you if it weren't that your other issues made me wince. I'll send you some good juju too.

L.E. Bryce 2:26 PM  

But, Emily, who is the logo on the butt plug intended for? Surely your colon doesn't care where you got it?
