Northshire Bookstore acquires Espresso Book Machine!

A poster over at the Huffington Post comparing the Pareto Principle to the Netflix Principle (the article alone is worth a read) reported that Northshire Bookstore in Vermont has acquired the Espresso Book Machine for their store.

The Northshire Bookstore is proud to be the first independent bookstore in the United States—and one of only five locations in the world—to have an Espresso Book Machine (EBM) right on the premises.


We’ll be able to publish our own premium paperback Northshire Press editions of great classic works that are out of copyright (“in the public domain”), including rare and out-of-print titles and books of local and regional interest.

And thanks to online archives offering free, unfettered access to hundreds of thousands of public-domain titles from all over the world—from the obscure, to the famous, to the infamous—we’ll be able to produce high-quality Northshire Press Facsimile Editions, to literally “print on demand” to fulfill customer orders.

In addition to printing new editions of classic books, we will also serve self-publishing authors of fiction, poetry, cookbooks, family genealogies, local histories, corporate reports, custom course textbooks—you name it. Shires Press will offer a complete publishing package, as well as an extensive menu of optional quality upgrades and à la carte services, such as expanded paper and cover choices; professional editing, cover and/or text design, and technical support; as well as consultation on marketing and distribution. Shires Press can publish a beautiful paperback edition of your book that looks and feels like the real thing—because it is.

Also according to the site's press release, only four other locations have the machine or will soon have it: four other locations in the world that currently or will soon have an Espresso Book Machine: Open Content Alliance (San Francisco, California); the University of Alberta campus bookstore (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada); Bibliotheca Alexandrina (Library of Alexandria; Alexandria, Egypt); and the New Orleans Public Library (New Orleans, Louisiana).

May be five because I heard that A&R (Angus & Robertson) in Melbourne Australia has it as well.

Kudos to Northshire for getting on board!

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen ~ Giveaway + Book Blast + Kindle Scout Nom

I'm so excited about this! Annette K Larsen hooked me when I first read her YA Fantasy Romance Missing Lily and I'm jazzed to say she has a new release out! Annette's book is also on Kindle Scout. A link is included below to check out the book and nominate her book! Enjoy! ~R

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen
He's noble. She's common. It's complicated. Kinley is content with her common life until a chance meeting with an old friend—a noble—brings the possibility of love. Though Rylan pursues her with a charming carelessness, she doesn’t dare hope that their relationship will be accepted. When Kinley’s livelihood is threatened, she is thrust into his world as a servant, but the Rylan she encounters there isn’t the quirky friend she thought she knew. Can she trust him, or will she be forced to accept that her dreams are only that—dreams?

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…
