ePub version now available of My Phantom:The Memoir of Christine Daaé

Straight Up Press has just released an ePub version of My Phantom:The Memoir of Christine Daaé at Lulu and priced it at $3.99, the same price as the Kindle version.

Here's the link they sent: http://www.lulu.com/product/ebook/my...C3%A9/10287600.
There is a preview of the first chapter available as well. You can also explore the book at www.MyPhantomTheMemoir.com.

Straight Up Press is in discussions with other online retailers, including iBookstore and Kobo, and hopes to make the novel available more widely. However, some retailers are reluctant to accept books from small publishers, requiring a minimum of five or ten titles, often by a variety of authors.

If you have suggestions of online retailers who might be open to selling the novel, please let me know.

So far, Smashwords has ironed out bugs and made the vast majority of its premium catalog available through B&N and Apple. Sony and Kobo seem to be having some teething problems, and Amazon has some additional formatting requirements, I think.

I would not be surprised that it's the lack of formatting retained and stripping of the pictures from the mobi versions that is part of the issue (the mobi version often looks the worst or is "lesser" compared to the others, which would make the Kindle version cost the same, but be the worst choice in a comparison). Also, they no doubt need to override price in the event it is set to zero, need information on which countries the publication rights are valid and some assurance that Smashwords has done the research they are now doing, make sure that nothing posted violates the copyright holder's rights (which no other company does and I believe was a major mistake on Amazon's part).

Thanks for the suggestions

Thanks to all for your suggestions of other eBooksellers who might put My Phantom: The Memoir of Christine Daaé on their shelves. For some reason, Straight Up Press hasn't followed up with Smashwords, but they've lined up a few other stores, as per my new post.
