Booknook.biz: Invasion of the Bodysnatchers!

Bodysnatchers?

Hitch, you ask, have you been watching too much Turner Classic Movies?

And the answer is:  no.  We have, however, taken in a new book for production to epub format, for future distribution to Nook and other epub outlets:  Heads Shoulders Knees and Bones, which are the real-life adventures of an actual...well, bodysnatcher.  The cover calls it "A personal account of a 'Body Broker's' 13-year journey through the Legal and Lucrative Body Parts Business," although we note that author Philip Guyette, Jr., is currently serving time, so it appears that a judge mayn't have agreed with that interpretation vis-a-vis legality. 

Nonetheless...we eagerly anticipate the final production of Heads Shoulders Knees and Bones.  It looks fascinating, and I know I'm adding it to my TBR list.  Couple that with Maynard Allington's upcoming new release, "The Psychoneurotic Vampire," and all we need now is a Zombie book to hit an early MGM Movie Trifecta. 

But hang on...around here, we never know what's next. 

Bodysnatching alert!  Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Bones is coming out shortly to an e-retailer near you!

Phone Call Alert!

Due to the COVID-19 onslaught, we currently cannot take incoming phone calls.  

 

A notification about phone calls:  due to the COVID-19 plague, we've significantly increased our incoming inquiries--nearly double our usual volume--and the number of incoming inquiries by phone has been literally overwhelming.  Although most writers will say that their call "will only take 15 minutes," the truth is, that after 10 years of doing this, most author inquiry calls take an hour.  45 minutes at best. I'm currently receiving 7-10 calls/day, and due to that, I've had to stop accepting incoming phone calls, which my voicemail will tell you. You can leave a message--I can't call you back without one--and if a call is needed, I will of course call you.  But we have very complete and extensive email replies, handouts and our website is very informative. Almost all the questions that I receive during a call are actually already answered on our site, or are, in fact, publishing questions, not questions about our services, what we do, what we offer, or the like.  I already handle between 90-130 emails/day, as it is. I can't handle that many emails and take 7-10 hours of calls each day. I can't. So, in order to be able to answer this huge email volume, to help the greatest number of people, with my time, I've had to stop accepting calls.  I'm sorry, but that's just how it is. I'm in the process of setting up a call-appointment function, for free 15-minute calls to answer questions from new prospective customers and longer paid sessions for folks who generally want consulting on "publishing," generally (and for prospective kids' book publishers, as a special category of paid consulting).  But that functionality isn't yet set up. I hope to get that working the 3rd week of July, sometime.  

Thank you for your understanding.
