It’s been awhile since we converted any of our print titles into ebooks (two years, in fact), so we’re excited to announce that the log-jam has been broken! Huge thanks go to Kurt Graustein, who trawled many a forum to find ways to expedite our process — a process that insists on a functional table of contents, precise stanza breaks and long-line indents where possible (for poetry), and a logical start-point; all while keeping the text reflowable and legible on the oldest of e-ink Kindles. What used to take two days of unpacking, fixing, and repacking the XML & CSS generated from our InDesign print files now takes two to three hours. Thus the kindling begins!
From now until our backlist is fully converted, we’ll be releasing a pair of titles each Friday in the Kindle shops. Today’s titles are:
The Road to Isla Negra — poetry by William O’Daly, with art by Galen Garwood.
Premeditations — flash fiction by Michelle Ristuccia
If you do download a copy of either of these titles, please let us know how it worked for you in the comments below or tweet us with a photo of it on your device @foldedword #WinterKindling.
