Cori Rubio books 1 and 2 are available now on Kobo and Nook, but the technical problems persist.
On Kobo, purchased books do not show up in the library. We’ve been assured that this was a matter of time.
On Nook, there is a weird formatting problem on the iPhone app; looks like some kind of a hard return problem. We do not yet have a solution for this. It works fine if viewed on a Web browser.
We will keep you posted. Let us know if you have any difficulties.
[Updated 6/11/15: Kobo is working fine now.]
Things are really moving at a break-neck speed around here. Looks like we will be able to upload Journey through the States some time next weekend; it will be available for purchase a few days after that. Judging by our visitor statistics, there is a lot of interest in States. Right now, I am the bottleneck, so I’ll get my butt in gear and make it happen!
One quick update. We are having some delays with Kobo and Nook that we hope to resolve soon. On Kobo, it appears that you can purchase the books but not download it, yet. On Nook, we’re having problems with the uploading process. If anything develops, I will post an update.
Much to my surprise, People Have This Thing Called “Free Will” is now available on Kindle, iBooks, and Kobo.
Cori Rubio Book 1, It Doesn’t Make Any Sense, is now also available on Kindle, iBooks, and Kobo.
Both books will be coming soon to Nook!
Cori Rubio Book 1, It Doesn’t Make Any Sense, is now available on Kindle and iBooks.
Cori Rubio Book 2, People Have This Thing Called “Free Will”, will be next. We are hoping for the end of June, but it may spill into July.
This is all happening sooner than we planned, thanks to everyone’s hard work. I can’t remember for sure, and computer file dates are giving me ambiguous information, but I think I started working on these books in 2009 or 2010. Above all, I’m happy that they are seeing the light of day!

I put together these covers for the Cori books instead of doing something I really should be doing. Ah, well…
Actually, I don’t, but they’ve been giving me hell this week. Mostly the problem is that I’ve been doing cover designs in CMYK—you know, since they are for books—but then they look awful on computers. My iPad is especially lousy at this; time to upgrade to iOS 8, I guess. I am converting them to RGB, which means everything has to be readjusted… and then rechecked on multiple screens in multiple software in multiple OS… Color profiles were supposed to make this all unnecessary!
And don’t get me started on sRGB vs Adobe RGB. You can see Ken Rockwell’s rants instead.
[Added 5/11/15] This one is CMYK sRGB:
And this one is RGB sRGB, with some shadow enhancement:
I just finished a cover design for States that I like, but the ideas I have for the Cori books are more elaborate and may be beyond my artistic skills. The Cori books will likely be posted without a real cover for now. If they sell well, I will consider hiring someone to do the cover.
Here is the current version of the design for States.
The first two volumes of the Cori Rubio series are currently in their final stages of being prepared for publication. Please check back to find out when they will be available on Amazon and iBooks.
Journey through the States will be coming next.
