For the second day in a row, I had a lovely writer double date. Yesterday I met up with Karin of An Alien Parisienne and Isabelle Solal at Buttes Chaumont, my favorite Paris park.
Topics of conversation were mainly about writing craft, though there was a fair bit of girly talk, too.
Isabelle recently took the plunge and put her debut novel directly onto Amazon’s Kindle Store. As I’ve been watching the current traditional vs self-publishing show-down with rapt attention, you better believe I’ll be following her journey. I’ll borrow any tips should I decide to go that route.
I’ve already learned from Isabelle that I don’t actually need a Kindle to read an ebook for Kindle. (Who knew?) You can download a copy to your computer.
I haven’t yet had a chance to read In the Past Imperfect, but if it’s as light and bright as Isa, it should be fun. It’s an updated take on Persuasion with a twist – and transported to France.
Good luck, Isa!
In other news, I’m heading to Istanbul tomorrow. Even cooler, my family will join me there! Mom, dad, sister, niece. The last two live in Bahrain, so I’m also looking forward to getting an in-person update as to what’s really going on with all the craziness in that country. We’re living through interesting times.
I’ll see you back here in just over a week.
Have a good one!
