Thanks for this opportunity to update your readers, Susan. The last time I visited Reading Recommendations was in July of 2015. I had just released The Gift: Penance, the fourth book in the Gift Legacy series. It was the first book I published with WindStorm Press, and since then, I’ve re-released the first three books. The last one came out a few days ago, and now all four books are published under the WindStorm umbrella.
Changing publishers gave me the opportunity to do an editorial review of the books, spruce up their covers and lower their prices. Of course, the Canadian dollar has since tanked, so the price of the paperback is creeping up, but the price of the eBooks is unaffected (whew!)
Here’s a look at the new covers, re-designed by the original artist, Viona Halim.
I also wanted to report an update to one of the marketing tips I’d mentioned in the July post. Back then, you had to select Expanded Distribution if you wanted CreateSpace to distribute to Canada’s Amazon site. In October of 2015, that changed, and CreateSpace folded Amazon.ca into their Amazon family. This is a quote from their notice:
“Starting October 8, we began making CreateSpace titles enrolled in the Amazon.com sales channel available directly to readers in Canada on Amazon.ca. Your title may already be offered on Amazon.ca through Expanded Distribution or other channels, but now you can earn the same royalty on Amazon.ca that you would earn for a sale on Amazon.com.”
This is good news if you’re using another company to do your expanded distribution.
Thanks again, Susan, for this opportunity, and for your tremendous support of indie authors!
