|Author Paul B. Thompson|
Author, Paul B. Thompson began his association with Enslow Publishers in 2007 with a 160-page biography of Joan of Arc. His interest in history forms a link through his body of work for Enslow, including his most recent effort, the fantasy fiction trilogy called "The Brightstone Saga." The first book in this venture -- The Brightworking -- was published this fall to positive reviews. Following up The Brightworking is our January 2013 release of Book II -- The Fortune-Teller. The trilogy's culmination -- The Battle for the Brightstone -- is scheduled for a Fall 2013 release.
We recently spoke with Thompson about his writing, how he approaches his work, and the rewards and challenges he faces as an author of historical fiction and fantasy fiction.
We'd like to thank Paul Thompson for taking the time to do this interview.
Anyone who wishes to review The Fortune-Teller may request a complimentary copy by sending an email to email@example.com.
The Fortune-Teller and The Brightworking can be purchased directly from Enslow Publishers. The books are also available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Institutional buyers may also purchase them from their preferred vendor.

Fact#1: Uranus was the first planet to be "discovered" in any modern sense. Other planets, from Mercury through Saturn, had been observed since ancient times.
Fact# 2: Uranus' Discoverer, William Hershel gave Uranus the Latin name "Georgium Sidus", which means "Georgian Planet." Herschel did this to honor King George III of England, who was Herschel's patron. Uranus was not actually named "Uranus" until 1850.
Fact#3: Herschel first observed Uranus on March 13th, 1781, but it took him many repeated observations to confirm that he was not observing a star or comet.

|Navigating the eBook Highway|
The Cost of Making eBooks (Part 1)
|Since an eBook is always hidden in your reading device,|
it's easy to forget about the hidden costs to make it!
- There is processing staff that track down and prepare the existing layout files for conversion.
- There is production staff who take the existing layout file and translate it into HTML, XHTML, or XML code, and generate an EPUB file. There are automated programs that do this, but they have often been described as ‘meat-grinders.’ Get the idea?
- There is proofing staff that check for errors, line by line. Yes, we do proofread our eBooks because things do get lost or mixed up in the conversion! They also proof the code.
- Revise, revise, revise.
