Welcome to BadDogBooks.com!
Hello and welcome to BadDogBooks.com, the furry eBook site of FurPlanet Productions.
We’re having a soft opening, which is retail speak for we’re open but not “officially”. Our grand opening will be on July 1st so pardon our dust as we are still tweaking some areas of the site.
Feel free to look around. All the books which are active in the store are available to purchase and the credit card system is online. If you have any questions or issues please send an email to FuzzWolf@FurPlanet.com for assistance.
Consider this soft opening a public beta test of our new site. We want to hear what you think so far so please give us some feedback on your experience here.
Thank you for checking out our new store. Keep an eye on our blog and Twitter, @BadDogBooks, for lots more exciting news and updates!
you might want to rethink that background image. grey text on grey background is really hard (impossible) to read. also that logo image is good looking, but anybody not in full screen mode (or with a small screen) will only see the edge of it.
on the author pages: as you display the books in a 4-column grid, only displaying 10 books per page looks pretty ugly (as the last row only displays 2 books, even if there are more to show). please consider 8 or 12 books per page instead.
otherwise the site seems functional and clear.
Thanks for the feedback. I looked for a setting to fix the # of items per page, but it turned out I had to manually edit some code. Glad I didn’t break the site. 🙂
I’m okay with the logo not being seen on smaller screens though. I had iPads/tablets in mind and it auto-sizes without the logo. Thanks for your thoughts on it though.
I love the idea, I’d much rather support the community directly and I get the added bonus of being free from a Big Brother who can censor my account at their whim.
Once I pay for a book how do I receive it and in what format will it arrive? Will it include the artwork?
Can’t wait for Divisions! 🙂
Hi, thanks for checking out the site. I’m glad you like what we’re trying to do here. 🙂
Once you buy a book, go to your account page and you’ll see a list of available downloads. You’ll also receive an email with the download links for the purchased books in it. Most of the eBooks are in two formats: epub (compatible with Nook, Sony Reader, iPad and more) and mobi (compatible with Kindle).
If you have a Kindle you can connect to your computer via USB then just drag and drop the mobi file into the Kindle’s Documents folder. It also works with the Kindle app for phones, tablets and desktops. Let me know if you have any questions, I’ll be working on an FAQ about all this as soon as I can. 🙂
By the way, if you want to test it out before buying then set up an account and add the free eBooks we have to your cart and go through the checkout process. You can buy Gold Standard by Kyell Gold or Thou Shalt Not Kill by me, for free.
Thanks for the tip, I’ll try it. 🙂
Epub is my favorite format, can curl up with my Android tablet & Moon Reader at night or enjoy the art on the larger screen of my desktop with Calibre. Thanks again!
Just tried the books you mentioned and made a purchase as well. Everything worked perfectly! 🙂
Is there a way to leave a review without having my personal email address right next to it? 🙂
I’m not sure why, but on your profile the nickname field had your email address and your “display publicly” dropdown menu was set to your email address too. I’ve changed that to W.W. like you were using before and have manually edited the display name on your reviews to show W.W. as well.
Hope that helps. If it happens again, log into your profile and make sure your nickname doesn’t show your email address and let me know if there are any issues. Thanks!
Thanks for the help. I’m not sure how it happened but my review for Isolation Play got put on Volle. Maybe Opera isn’t the most compatible or maybe I was just too tired the day I did those, not sure. Considering the kind of hours I’ve been working lately, it’s probably the latter. Thanks again for everyone’s efforts, looking forward to July 1st.
