After much fiddling and fussing, my little book shop—C.C. Williams Bookseller—is live!
Now this shop is about making it easy to buy my stories without having to traipse off to Amazon or Smashwords or any of my other great retailers (where they are still and will continue to be available) and is very much the training wheels, version 1.0 setup… Which, of course, means that I’m not totally happy (can’t get the color scheme to work properly, don’t really like the layout options, yada, yada, yada). BUT I’m not going to let the perfect get in the way of the good—so I’m putting it out there and hoping that everyone doesn’t laugh too hard.
Payment is through PayPal. All the files download as ZIP files to keep them from opening as they download—just unzip to your preferred directory and you are good to go!
Version 2.0 (different software, etc.) is already in the works, as is planning expanded offerings—additional print and e-format items from other authors, audio books, etc.
Anyone who is interested in expanding their discoverability (which after all is the core of the sales game), please contact me here.
Otherwise… go shopping!
I love my new website! Using WordPress has made everything so much easier–but there is SO MUCH MORE that I want to do still! And that’s not counting the store front which is still under some serious construction.
The downside is that I have had very little time for “real” writing. Several stories are languishing at various points in their development. **sigh** And that’s not counting the stuff in the plotting stages.
BUT! Once I get this up and running to my satisfaction, there will be more time ’cause I’ll have to spend less on site updates which should happen more frequently … plus I can do all the things that I have been putting off–reviews, new release posts, maybe even a contest or two!
I’m also going to have a newsletter! Details to follow . . .
Since I’ve managed to get things somewhat networked, I don’t know where you, dear reader, are reading this. So I’ll point out that the OLD site (ccwilliamsonline.NET) is still up and running and will in future point to the NEW site (www.ccwilliamsonline.COM), so if you wish you may adjust your bookmarks, but it’s not necessary.
Thanks to everyone for their ongoing support!
‘Til next time!
