I released my novel, Ashford, both in print and on Kindle at roughly the same time. With CS, it really makes sense to release it in print as long as you know you'll sell more than five copies or so, since (if you do the formatting yourself) you only pay the price of the proof copy. They are automatically available on Amazon, which makes it easy for people to find. I also have mine on consignment with a local coffee shop, where I held my book launch in November, and a couple other places. All told, I've sold about equal numbers of paperbacks and Kindle Editions. In several cases, I've had people who read the book on Kindle first contact me asking for a signed paperback. I hope this helps. Cheers!
Nice website, Anna. Good luck with the book.

Greetings from NJ!
I'm Nathaniel Davis, and I'm promoting book Anomaly that just got released. Is it a funny book? I've seen readers laughing. Is it sad? They may have cried, too. Is it for adults or young adults? Yes. It is a book without a genre! Any genre ideas would be appreciated. It is available in paperback:

Hi to all and Happy New Year.
I want to invite all of my CS friends and fellow authors to come by and visit the new website I created for my book character. My book is a children's picture book called "The Adventures of Cefa the Cat." I have added a shopping page where I can sell my book (s) and other fun items called the "Me and Cefa" line. I can put a picture of Cefa and anyone else on a T-shirt and/or Tote bag. I plan on adding more adventure books and items in the future. Please visit Cefa’s new website, listen to him tell you about it, visit his Fun Shop and become a fan of Cefa’s on Facebook. Let me know what you think and tell your friends too. http://www.cefathecat.com. It feels good to pat yourself on the back sometimes, doesn't it??
The follow-up to Goblin Winter has arrived.
The first of the Fimbulvetr Books, WIND OF CHAINS begins with Mew's death and ends with her resurrection. In between, she finds a world wracked by supernatural famine. While the Horde washes over the sin of the people, absorbing struggling civilizations into its angelic cult, the Lonely Forgotten Sun of God rises, determined to find her place in a post-apocalyptic landscape. But will she lead those around her to destiny or ruin?
While beneath it all, the Garm wait to make their move...
WIND OF CHAINS is a tale of legacy and destiny while imagining a future in which no hope remains, but in which unique characters find solace and salvation in each other.
Feel free to check out the revamped website or LIKE Goblin Winter on Facebook.
BELLYACHE: A Delicious Tale was nominated for the 2010 CYBILS Awards and won the 2011 Readers Favorite Silver Award in its category.
Appearing in the first ever Publisher's Weekly Select Magazine.
First in a three part series, book 2 is planned to release in March 2012.
A lip-smacking, mouthwatering, absolutely delectable debut, BELLYACHE: A Delicious Tale by Crystal Marcos is a literary feast for ages seven and up. In the vein of Roald Dahl's best-loved adventures, Marcos offers a mystical, character driven escapade that intertwines strands of reality with a larger-than-life fantasy world. When Peter Fischer sets out to help his grandfather at Papa's Sweet Shop, he will quickly learn that sneaking sweets and covering up his sugar-dusted tracks will have major consequences. As Peter is transported to a mysteriously delicious, faraway land, a curious people known as the Candonites, some of whom have no time for a non-Candonite, will teach Peter a lesson on what it means to be different and what it means to forgive.

Hi Everyone! I am very new to these forums. I just started lurking around in here yesterday and this is only my 2nd post. I think I'm going to enjoy seeing what everyone is up to. I've recently published my first middle-grade novel about an adventure through E.Magi.Nation. I'm thrilled with the results of the CreateSpace paperback and it's also available for the Kindle ereaders. I've just enrolled it in the KDP select program this morning. I was hesitant for a long time, but finally decided to give that a go. If you'd like to take a look at Willow Crossing here is the link.
Thanks for looking! I'm off now to work on the sequel (which is about 25% finished, but still unnamed at this point).
