Ebooks Updated!

new book covers for BUFFALO LIGHTS and TAOS SOUL

Back to work!

The new covers are gorgeous, and that’s not all: inside you’ll find revised introductions and back matter (the information after the last chapter) plus improved formatting—no more spaces between indented paragraphs, hallelujah! There’s a revised subtitle for the first one, too. The sampler ebook from Zoo Pilot Publishing (BUFFALO LIGHTS & TAOS SOUL: Eight of the Best) also sports a new cover and similar improvements. The complete ebooks are $4.99 each and the sampler is 99 cents. These are up and running at the Amazon Kindle store. A good place to start is my author page.

As soon as Smashwords updates its distribution channels, the latest version of TAOS SOUL will appear at the Apple iBooks store, Barnes & Noble, Sony, and elsewhere. Until this happens, you can actually purchase the same newly-revised ebook for just $2.99 at Amazon, but not for long.

For the immediate future, I’m working on a novel that I hope to publish very soon. It won’t be anything like what you read here on this website, either. I hope to have some other surprises ready for the Christmas season, too, so stick around.

John Hamilton Farr lives in Taos, New Mexico, U.S.A. with his classical pianist wife. “Possibly the only place I can get away with this,” he says. As New York Times best-selling author James C. Moore (Bush’s Brain) put it in a review of John’s first book, Buffalo Lights is the work of a man attuned to the world who sees it differently than you and I and writes about it with a language and a vision of life that is impossible to ignore.” John is the author of BUFFALO LIGHTS, TAOS SOUL, ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE, and THE HELEN CHRONICLES. He has been publishing online since 1996 (Zoo Zone, Farr Site, MacFaust, GRACK!, FarrFeed) and blogs regularly here at JHFARR.COM.

    I’m sad that you changed covers in those great books 🙁

      I very much appreciate that you enjoyed the old ones. That bull in front of the adobe cottage was a winner, for sure. And thank you so much for the “great books”… But I really had no choice after updating the back matter in all of them.

      The problem was that Apple, Amazon, and others now require much larger images for their ebooks so that they look nice on higher-resolution screens. Once I updated the content on those books, the new cover requirements went into effect—the old covers having previously been “grandfathered”—and the original photos used for both covers were too small (not enough pixels) to work with at the required size. I had no idea that would happen, either! There was just no way I could keep the old designs.
