Launching in 3, 2, 1….

FourWindowsCover_thumbLadies and gentlemen, we have liftoff.

If you haven’t already heard about it through our newsletter or the facebooks, let me be the first to tell you that Four Windows: Seattle (Part 1) is officially here. (Go snag your free copy!)

We’re all equal parts excited, relieved, and overwhelmed.

Last night my mom summed this feeling up perfectly – this is a bit like giving birth. We were so excited for launch day because it meant the culmination of a long and arduous process, but as soon as we set our journal free on the world we realized we had a lot more work on our hands than we’d really anticipated.

And that’s the amazing, beautiful part of this project!

Questions? We’ve got your answers.

We’ve gotten a few questions since launch, and so we’ve written up a FAQ page to help address them. Feel free to leave questions in the comments of that page, or on this post, or email us at editors {{at}} fourwindowsbooks.com.

Here are some of the most common ones:

How can I read an ebook on my computer?

EPUB: To open an .epub file, right click on the book title, choose Open with, and select your preferred ebook reader application. If you don’t have an ebook reader installed on your computer, laptop, or tablet, download a free ereader, like Calibre or Adobe Digital Editions.

You can also sign up for a Google Play account and upload the ebook to read in your web browser.

.Epub files work for most ereaders that aren’t Kindles – just transfer it to your device and you should be good to go.

MOBI: To open a .mobi file, you need a Kindle device, or a free Kindle app installed on your phone or tablet. Use the Send to Kindle app on your computer to upload the file, and you’ll be able to read it, no problem.

What’s the release schedule?

Good question! The first issue of Four Windows: Seattle was released on September 15, 2014. (You can snag your free copy here.)

Subscribers will receive the rest of the issues straight to their inbox.

Issue 2: November 30
Issue 3: February 28
Issue 4 (final): May 31

Will there be a print edition?

Each of the novels will be available in print once they’re finished, but we won’t be publishing the journal issues in print.

Will I be able to buy all these novels after they’re all out?

Yes! Subscribers will get an ebook copy of all four novels as part of their subscription, but once they’re completed we’ll have all four novels up for sale wherever fine ebooks are sold. We’ll also have print copies available for sale. (Subscribers will get a 15% discount on print copies.)

What city will we do next?

We’re not sure yet! If you’re a writer and interested in taking part in the next novel incubator project, shoot us an email at editors {{at}} fourwindowsbooks.com.
