One of my favorite non-book bloggers, GoodStuffNW, has added HugoSF to her summer book report. See her post: Summer Book Report: Two for Two!

San Francisco features so strongly in HugoSF that it’s really a character unto itself. Naturally I was delighted to see this beautiful visual tease for our great City from the SF tourism bureau.


I know, it’s shocking but it’s true. And the predominant burden for the delay rests with me.

Regardless, I’m delighted to announce that HugoSF is now available for Sony Reader at the Sony ReaderStore:

Download a copy, write a review, send me a note…As always, thanks for your support.

HugoSF is now available for NOOK on the Barnes + Noble website:

For anyone who is interested, I used smashwords to create the epub and distribute it. Their MS Word / epub converter tool was pretty easy to use; easier and much less time-consuming than hand-building the epub files. (That ridiculous endeavor was my autumn. Never again….)

Too soon to report back on the smashwords experience, but so far it’s been good. It helps to have a distributor.

Sometimes the most interesting route to somewhere is the long, circuitous, ever-doubling back route. When it comes to self-publishing, though, I recommend the expressway.

It is with great interest, then – and delight – to announce that HugoSF is finally available on iTunes. Journey the roller coaster with Hugo Storm on iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

Hugo’s quasi-miraculous emergence
After a few months of soft launch, it was time to officially launch HugoSF, including the new cover art by Sharee Robinson of MyGroove Design, at 2 Sisters Bar and Books in Hayes Valley, SF.

Check out the pics from the Book Launch party. (Opens the Facebook gallery in a new tab/window.)

Happy Hour with Hugo
The HugoSF Book Launch Party
Thursday November 10, 2011

2 Sisters Bar and Books
579 Hayes Street
San Francisco, CA 94102
(btw Laguna + Octavia
in scenic Hayes Valley)

Beer, wine and happy hour comestibles will be served.

The public is welcome!
Check out the invitation and details.

Hugo has a new look. Sharee Robinson of MyGroove Design has graciously donated her time and talent in creating vibrant new cover art for HugoSF.

Inspired by the same setting that was featured on the 1st edition cover, Sharee has brought dimension, humanity (and angles!) to Hugo. Or as Jane, the bunghole pestering library scientist, would say: layers.

The cover is actually a photograph shot by Jennifer Marvin of JM Images and features my neighbor Raoul as a stand-in for Hugo.

The 2nd edition is available in paperback. Kindle and ePub updates will submitted any day now.

Looks like the official launch party for HugoSF will be Thursday, November 10  2011. We’ll be at the enchanting new 2 Sisters Bar and Books lounge in Hayes Valley, SF.  Estimated timeframe: 5:30 to 8:00. More details once we’ve inked the deal. So to speak.

Success! The first demo version of HugoSF in epub format worked. After revisiting jedisaber’s tutorial, I managed to create and review a working version of the book in Adobe Digital Editions.

Piece of cake (he said, omitting countless details out of avoidance or simply grey matter fatigue).
