One question that Digimonkey hears on a fairly regular basis is, “Why does All Romance/OmniLit list a Word Count for the books they sell, rather than a Page Count?” Very good question, and Digi has a little story that will provide you with the answer.
In the days before ebooks were born, back in the dark ages when humans lived without the benefit of personal computers, tablets and – gasp! — cell phones, Page Count was a very easy thing to define because all books were ...more
I loved it. I hated it. It was wonderful. It was awful. It was hilarious. It was boring.
All of these phrases are opinions, and most people really enjoy giving their opinions (at least, in Digimonkey’s opinion). Why? Because opinions are one of the easiest ways we can share our personal experiences with others. Imagine trying to tell a personal story without showing the slightest hint of an opinion regarding the events being related. It would get pretty boring for both you and your listeners. Don’t ...more
Digimonkey attended the birthday party of a friend over the weekend, and as she mingled with the other guests, one of them asked Digi, “So, what type of work do you do?” Now, Digi loves answering this question, but the moment she started talking about electronic books, the woman shook her head and said, “Oh, I can’t read those. I don’t have an ereader.”
For those of you who have met Digimonkey, you can imagine her little face scrunching up in an expression of shock and ...more
With the rapid increase in the use of tablets and smartphones as ereading devices, EPUB has become the fastest-growing file format. The International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF), a trade and standards association for the digital publishing industry, developed and approved the EPUB format as the industry standard. The open, user-friendly format is non-proprietary and can be found in both secure and regular versions.
Because of its adoption as an industry standard, you’ll find it’s compatible with just about every ebook reading device and app, with the ...more

Calling all authors! Other than writing books, what’s the most important writing-related task you do? Survey says…communicate with readers! After all, without anyone to read your books, they’d just sit there, sad, lonely, unloved and unread. That’s no life for a book!
Chances are you’ve made use of the Internet to promote your books to readers using a website, blog, Facebook or Twitter, right? And you want to make it easy for the readers who find you on the Internet to purchase your books, don’t you? ...more
Digimonkey fondly recalls a time in her not-too-distant past when the only password she had to remember was the one that gained her entrance into the Little Monkeys playhouse in grade school. Ah, those were simpler times.
In the Adult Monkey world, there are dozens of passwords to remember, and those passwords provide access to virtually everything, including your All Romance eBooks account! But with so many different passwords, it’s easy to forget which one unlocks the wonders of your online ebook Library. When that happens, ...more
Many of the people who enjoy traveling to the All Romance/OmniLit site to purchase their ebooks live outside the United States. As a result, Digi never knows when she’s going to be helping someone who’s halfway across the globe. Now that’s cool!
However, Digi wants those who live outside the U.S. to come a little closer so they can hear what she has to say. Closer, closer…stop! Don’t hit your nose on the screen.
The two words Digi needs to share with you are “Territory Restrictions”.
What are ...more
