Aloha from headquarters in sunny Hawaii!  Yes, it's typical Hawaii day here at Savant Books and Publications and Aignos Publishing (an imprint of Savant Books and Publications): 78 degrees F, warm sun, light trade wind, mountain showers. Everything the travel agents say!

It's mid-June and an auspicious day, because the Hokolea voyaging canoe crew is returning to Hawaii from it's voyage around the world!  I can see crowds already gathering at Magic Island to greet them later this morning. 

Our publishing houses, Savant and Aignos, are experiencing an equally auspicious day. We are fast approaching 125 publications, which will elevate our house from a small to medium-size, carrying with it more marketing and sales channels. We expect to hit the mark later this month. 

It's time for me to put on my publisher's hat and begin the chat!

I just found out -- the hard way that Hawaii doesn't observe daylight time!
Who knew!

Good morning, everyone!

I see that there are 15 people on the forum this morning (or afternoon if you're on the Main Land). We'd love to know who we're talking to and I encourage anyone who hasn't yet to register for a username. [smile]

Hi Lynne! How is it where you are? I'd love it if you shared a bit about yourself for those who haven't had the pleasure of meeting you yet.

One of the marks of a great publishing house is that it generates interest from others. This month marks our seventh inquiry to purchase Savant Books and Publications and Aignos Publishing and bring it to the next level. As always, I'll let you know of any significant events, but the main thing I like to remember is that when others make such inquiries, it means we're growing well and doing our job right. 

Perhaps the biggest announcement I have is that, after a careful marketing analysis, we've decided to remove our ebooks from Amazon's exclusive Kindle Select program (don't worry, they'll all be on sale like usual from Amazon Kindle) so that we can add additional channels like Google Play, iTunes, Nook and others. As of today, all of our eBooks are now also on sale from Google Play! 

That's most of the scuttlebutt from my publisher's point-of-view, so now I'll take off my publisher's hat and put on my editor's hat.

DC is muggy and yucky.  Lucky yous in Paradise!

Usernames can be anything you want to be associated with but a real name is always great so that everyone can connect outside of the forum as well. Especially for authors, it really helps because for later correspondence we can know something about you and what you're working on from the chat.

As I just posted I live in DC mostly, but for a few weeks each summer in California.

This is great! California is a big setting in your upcoming novel, A Real Daughter, is that right? I'm sure there are people here who haven't heard of your book. I'd love it if you shared the synopsis of this work here.

I grew up in Southern California, the setting for most of A REAL DAUGHTER.

This is Mike Davis from an unexpectedly cool and rainy day here in Wyoming. I am pleased to report that several of the authors I met 2 weeks ago intend to submit their works to us soon. One that I am very interested in is a young adult level musical complete with a score and lyrics.

Second, I am working on a pre-release publicity guide for Savant to accompany our post release manual. So any and all suggestions are appreciated.
