De Godin van de Flaporen

The latest from Leg Iron Books is a Dutch translation of Justin Sanebridge’s ‘The Goddess of Protruding Ears‘ – which has, so far, accumulated three 5-star reviews on Amazon.

Yes, ‘Flaporen’ is Dutch for ‘protruding ears’. I think it sounds much better than the English version.

It’s freshly loaded so the print and Kindle versions have not yet blended into one. There was also a small issue with the Kindle version, the fixed version is now loaded but you might still see the glitch until the new one comes through.

Everything has to have one problem. In this case, the Kindle conversion stretched the back cover image over multiple pages. Kindle doesn’t seem to do too well with images in general but this one was really bad. Since the back cover isn’t necessary in an eBook I have simply removed it from the Kindle version. The Smashwords version, so far, seems unaffected.

It’s in Dutch, of course, so I guess that limits the audience somewhat – on the other hand, the original English version is now also available in Dutch so from that viewpoint, the audience base has increased.

I am now working 100% on the Halloween anthology. Some stories are already in and several more are promised. The deadline is around October 1st, I can be a little flexible but not more than a few days.

Something always goes wrong and it’s different every time, so I need to allow for ‘blunder time’ between loading the book and having it on sale.

After this one is published I’ll start on the Christmas anthology. Starting early so that it can be a bit more leisurely, and also because there’s Christmas post to consider as well as the usual blunder time!

If you have a Halloween story, any genre, now is the time to send it.

If you don’t have one to hand but you have an idea, you have two weeks to write it.
