Uncovered E-book On Sale! (longer post)

In case you don’t have a Twitter or happened not to be looking between midnight and midnight-thirty Central Time last night, or this morning around 7 am Pacific time, you might have missed that the Uncovered e-book is on sale at baddogbooks.com! The link is -> http://baddogbooks.com/?product=uncovered-dev-lee-book-4 <- here and it has both the epub and Kindle (MOBI) versions for your enjoyment. Per what is becoming my usual policy, the book will be only on BDB for the first month of its release before it goes to all the other stores. This is because BDB is a cool store and I want to encourage people to buy from them, and also (full disclosure) they offered me an incentive to have the exclusive time. The people who run it are good folk and furry folk, so if you buy from them, your money is largely staying in the fandom (less the amount that goes to payment processors, which can someone get on starting a furry bank already? thanks guys). Anyway, if you ONLY have Amazon gift cards or iTunes credit or whatever, the book will be there September 1. If you need help getting your MOBI file to your Kindle, check with your Kindle tech support.

    I’m on central time so it was a delightful surprise when I checked and Uncovered was up before I went to bed. I didn’t start reading it yet but I look forward to it! I’m used to many things online being based on Pacific time, and I wasn’t even sure the site would update at midnight. I am surprised they did not advertise the book at all prior to release if they had a little deal with you, because searching for it prior to it popping up yielded no results on the site. I knew it was coming regardless, though, and perhaps their system just doesn’t support placeholder “coming soon” product information.

    Is the physical book not sold on Amazon.com this time? I live with way too many family members to worry about them asking about what “Sofawolf” is or looking it up, and the ebook releases were much later back then so when I got Divisions I waited for it on Amazon. I understand Sofawolf ships discreetly but the mere source might raise questions I’m uncomfortable with (which makes me very happy the ebook is available so soon this time). I plan to buy it on the Barnes and Noble Nook store too when it comes out both to add it to my collection there and because the combined price is still around the same as if I bought the paperback version. I’m just curious if Sofawolf is the exclusive distributor of the physical book, or future books..

    One thing I do want to bring up is something I’m not sure you’re aware of: the images in Lee and Dev’s sections about football have compression artifacts so bad that they are virtually unreadable. I’m talking about the football diagram in Lee’s section and the map in Dev’s section at the start of each of the books in this series. Perhaps I should have brought that up way before this release but I wasn’t sure if the issue would arise with Uncovered. If image space is a concern the GIF format is lossless and deals very well with simple line stuff such as those two diagrams, and would present those pictures with no compression artifacts possibly in the same space or less, in comparison to the JPG format you’re currently using which is better suited to more complex images like the illustrations. If it isn’t obvious how I know the file format of the images, epub files are actually zip files and (DRM free) ones can be opened in any zip utility.

    Sorry for going on so long about the release and technical issue, but rest assured I was very excited for this release and I look forward to making time to read it! I’m sure I’ll be anticipating the next release coming a year and a half later. But then, it’s funny to me that time flew by since Divisions came out and it’s already been a year and a half since then! Thanks for continuing to write such interesting stories!
