Toni and Katie and I spent the day on horseback riding above the rim of the Wai’pio valley on Kona. Â The lunch stop was a lovely spot with a waterfall, a lovely pool, and benches to sit on. Â There were only three family groups on the ride – us, a Japanese family who did not speak English, and a father and daughter. Â It turns out the daughter is in school in NYC studying publishing and is an assistant editor for a popular magazine. Â So we got into the eBook talk, and the self publishing talk. Â I shared that all of my books are available electronically but that none are self-published. Â We talked about whether I might or might not do that (I definitely will fro my short stories, and expect I will for novels). Â She was very nice, and I enjoyed the talk. Â Of note – she stated that she thinks this is a lovely time to be a writer because there are so many options available.
We traded cards. Â After all, publishing a small small world.
