Thanks to everyone who has bought my ebook, Sacred Coffee: A “Homesteader’s” Paradigm. If you did not purchase it directly from me, you may want to return to your point of purchase and see if you can download the new, improved version.
Initially, I intended to make this a quick and dirty ebook. I learned from the process of producing my first book, Shy Ghosts Dancing: Dark Tales from Southeast Alaska, as an ebook that the medium has some severe limitations. Given the narrow focus of the latest book, I decided I could work within those limitations to produce a “good enough” ebook in a very short time.
Since then, I published Richard Lee Harris’s new book of poems. Needing to please more than myself this time, I took a harder look at the current methods of producing an ebook, and found that things have changed significantly in just a few years.
Not only have methods and specifications change, but I’m gaining experience that allows me to try a few tricks that exceed, or even openly flout the rules I’d previously followed religiously. The recent upgrade to a new computer has also given me access to newer, better software tools to use in the process.
After achieving satisfying results for my client, I decided to do the same for my own book. After all, it’s an example of my publishing company’s work; it ought to be the best I can make it.
Thus, Sacred Coffee 2.0, if you will.
I didn’t change any of the ebook’s text. I rearranged its format for a far superior text flow than I’d settled for previously. It reads more like a book now, even if it continues to rest in an electronic state.
The book’s still new enough that you should be able to download a fresh copy from the source you purchased it from, but do so as soon as possible. Everyone who bought directly from our Store page has already received the changed copy via email.
If you’ve been putting off purchasing your own copy, congratulations! Your procrastination has been rewarded. Now’s the time to get the new, optimal edition for your ereader.
If you’re waiting for a paper copy, it doesn’t exist. Use the comments section below, or email us directly to tell me you’d like one. If we get enough response, I’ll get to work on a print edition.
