…with a press release from Norilana Books. I’m so excited about this I could do a major penguin dance! Wonder if either of the anthologies I’m in are part of this? Don’t know, but I’m still excited. THE FUTURE IS NOW!


writing prompt: Imagine holding a freshly printed, literally hot-off-the-press book in your hands. What book would you want it to be?

Norilana Books is pleased to officially announce our agreement with Lightning Source to make all our titles available through the exciting new Espresso Book Machine® channel.

See the amazing machine in action, as it prints, binds, and delivers a print-on-demand book, in minutes, right at your local bookstore kiosk, while you wait:


Over the next few months, all of our Norilana Books backlist titles will be converted and become available through this channel, and all of our recent (published in the last 6 months) and future titles are already available immediately, as they are released.

In fact, our very first truly “instant” book has already been printed and sold at an Espresso machine location by a customer in the field!

And that first landmark title, printed in March 2010, was…

MANSFIELD PARK AND MUMMIES by Jane Austen and Vera Nazarian
ISBN-13: 978-1-60762-047-1
ISBN-10: 1-60762-047-2
