I am sooooo confused!

And if we gotta use Kyiv instead of Kiev, then why do we say instead of ?

Another reason I Ruby on Rail(s) against the file formats:

You can't have a table of contents/navigation like this!


Cuz are such an anathema, I am presenting & distributing our story, CONVERGENCE online from our site. ONLY

I'm not interested in selling books, I want to tell our story.

are bollocks because you can't put in a zillion pics. Coffee table books are equally so, in that you have to have a coffee table and a lot of money for the dang book.

Best distro for this work, Ta-DA! online

I'm formatting pics and getting em online to beat the band!

Eyeball em at elenameg.com/story/books/conve

suck! ๐Ÿ“–
sucks! ๐Ÿ’พ

Telling someone you have written a book๐Ÿคฎ is like telling em you sell Avon, ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ’ฉ or showing up at the front door to talk about god.๐ŸŽŽ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ™

Best way to get uninvited from all the coolest parties!๐ŸŽบ๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽท๐Ÿ˜Ž

Just don't do it. โ›”โ˜ข๏ธ๐Ÿšซโ˜ฃ๏ธ


I am NOT providing ebook files. ONLY html (online, in your browser like a webpage). You can ONLY read Convergence online. You do NOT have to pay to read it. The PAY FOR CONVERGENCE button does NOT provide a copy of the book, it simply allows you to make a voluntary payment (honor system) should you want to.

If you have paid in error, (expecting a file download) please email, so we can refund your money.

Apologies & Thanks,
Meg Stone

Decided not to distribute anything in or formats. Everything is internet connected 24/7, so the browser is the way to go.

Also, the near impossibility of including photographs has me thinking... it's just not worth it. Sticking to what the web was for: distribution of content.

Why you won't find CONVERGENCE on any online ebook bookstore.

And why we're going back to grassroots Internet and data ownership.

Has anyone actually sold any of their using platforms like or ?

If one has their own domain, server, etc. is there any point to the aforementioned distributors?

CONVERGENCE is out there!

The whole dang shebang, AND it's NOT behind a paywall. Download the epub, then, if you haven't already done so, pay for it.

Point I'm making here, folks, is that it is free to download. Don't need to pay, if don't want to, or can't, or have already done so.


How are e-book distro platforms (Smashwords, Kindle, et al) any different than social media (insomuch as the user/writer is the commodity and not the book)?

Anybody actually using them to SELL their works?

What's been your experience and success with e-book promotion/self publishing?

E-book distro format question:

Anybody still using mobi?

CONVERGENCE has been released!

The whole shebang is available in epub or mobi from our site



Our legal counsel informed us that, except for what is already online, I can only distribute this work through a publisher. It should be available within the next couple of weeks.

If you bought a membership, donated money, or love our story so much that you can't live without it -- and can't afford, or don't want to, pay for it -- I am happy to provide a free copy upon request, after publication.
