#8: Tik-Tok of Oz


The 8th book from Baum's Oz series, Tik-Tok of Oz, is now available from Eltanin Publishing! It includes all of the original illustrations (over 100, some in color) by John R. Neill. DRM-free.

Tik-Tok of Oz follows a band of characters as they attempt to find and rescue The Shaggy Man's brother from the Nome King. Some we have met before, such as The Shaggy Man, the Nome King, Polychrome, Tik-Tok, and even a brief appearance by Toto (who has a surprise for everyone). Many interesting new characters also make an appearance, including Queen Ann Soforth of Oogaboo, who wants to conquer Oz; Betsy Bobbin and her mule Hank, who wash ashore in Oz during a storm; the Rose Princess Ozga; and a a lackadaisical, flying dragon named Quox.

Available at:
Amazon US: http://amzn.com/B009KEXYAK/
Amazon UK: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tik-Tok-of-O...dp/B009KEXYAK/
Barnes & Noble: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/tik-...=2940015541397
Kobo: http://www.kobobooks.com/ebook/Tik-T...2QQ/page1.html

As you can see above, our Oz books are now available at Kobobooks.com, for those of you who use Kobo and/or want the ePub version but can’t buy from Barnes & Noble. Searching on just “Eltanin” seems to work best (if you include the word “publishing”, Kobo finds all books with the word “publishing”).

One note about images – Since our books are DRM-free, you can buy them at either of these 3 stores and convert them (if necessary) to read on any device. However, some of our kindle versions have larger versions of some illustrations. This is because both nook and kobo cut off parts of images that don’t fit the screen, rather than what the kindle does, which is shrinking images to fit the screen. So if you are reading on a nook or kobo, we do not recommend buying the Amazon/kindle version. On the other hand, if you are reading on a kindle, or on a large-screen device such as the apps for iPad or PC or a large tablet, we do recommend the kindle version so that you get the larger images.

We recently discovered that a few of our Oz books for sale at Barnes & Noble had line spacing issues (most noticeable at an increased line spacing, where not all lines would increase evenly). If you experience this, simply archive your book and re-download it and the problem will be fixed. If you ever notice any problem with our books, please let us know (info@eltaninpublishing.com).

If you are enjoying our Oz books, please consider leaving a review for one or more of them at Amazon and/or Kobo (Barnes & Noble’s review system for public domain books is messed up, so I can’t recommend leaving a review there). Thank you – reviews really make a difference!
