After using the New Yorker Kindle case for a while, I noticed that M-Edge had started advertising that soon you would be able to create custom covers using your own pictures and photographs. Hmm, what would make a good Kindle cover for me? Hmm …
After placing my order, I waited, and waited, and waited. Finally I e-mailed M-Edge to find out what was going on, and they said:
I do apologize for any inconvenience or confusion! Regarding order number 350624, this order was shipped on 3/29 via SmartPost and you should be receiving it this week. As far as I am able to determine, this order should be shipping to the address you originally requested. This order was shipped slightly later as our MyEdge team was awaiting on advice as to whether the design could be approved.
No one from M-Edge contacted me about the cover, but presumably they were concerned about whether or not I had the copyright to the cover. (Hint: Yes. Yes I do.) But that’s okay; they finally approved it, the cover finally came in, and lo, it was good.
Still … there was that pesky fact that the cover wouldn’t stay closed on its own, and I couldn’t stand it up on a table for easy reading while I was having lunch. Plus, wouldn’t it be nice if the case had pockets where I could store things? Yes … yes it would.
Oh, and, for those who are still wondering when my next novel is coming out: I’m a little over halfway through what should
definitely probably maybe be my last pass at editing book one of the two-part series. I keep finding things to change. From the start, I was less satisfied with the first half than the second half, so I expect it the process to speed up once I wrap up part one, which culminates in the first major confrontation between Our Heroes and the Big Bad. I’ve been working on that particular scene for the last several weeks; let’s just say it needed work, and leave it at that, shall we?
