Where to buy

I seem to have been ignoring this blog so, in an attempt to get it going again, I thought I’d list the main places to buy the various versions of my books. These are not, by any means, the only places, as you’ll find at least some of my books on most online book sellers’ sites, but these are the principal ones.

AMAZON

On Amazon you’ll find my self-published books, those released through other publishers and also anthologies I have a story in. This is where you’ll find the most comprehensive list of my work, most of which is available in both paperback format and kindle ebook.

Amazon.com

Amazon.co.uk

And most regional amazon variations.

SMASHWORDS

All of my self-published works are also available in a variety of ebook formats, including mobi (kindle) and epub, from Smashwords. The variety of formats available is the main appeal of Smashwords. Whatever ebook reader you have, you should find an appropriate format here.

LULU

fronthardback

I have used Lulu to create hardback versions of my longer self-published work. Because of the price involved, it was never intended as a serious “salepoint” for readers, but rather a kind of vanity project for myself. I wanted hardback versions of my stories for my own bookshelf – it’s that simple and that vain! Nevertheless, they are available for anyone who wants a nice hardback collection.

Because of the way Lulu works with books that contain “adult” language, violence or sex, you may need to provide your date of birth in order to view the books. If you don’t see the book covers, click on any of the blank image boxes to verify your age.

And that’s it – as I said at the beginning, you will find me scattered about elsewhere (Barnes & Noble for example) but those listed are the places the various versions of the books have been created for.

If you do happen to read any of my books, please consider leaving a review on the appropriate site. They really do help get a book noticed. Thank you for your support, and thank you for reading.

Promotions and widening the field

Promotions and widening the field

Some of you may have already seen posts on Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere saying that my latest book, The Frihet Rebellion, is currently FREE for the kindle on Amazon. I set the promotion to coincide with my birthday (yesterday, 29th March) and to last until the end of March (tomorrow). So there is (hopefully) little excuse not to download the book, even if you don’t intend to immediately read it. Hopefully, with it sitting on your kindle, you may be tempted at some point to give it a try. I hope so. That’s my devious plan anyway 🙂

If you do take advantage of this promotion, and you actually read the book, please consider leaving a review on Amazon. Reviews are important and impact who else might buy the book in the future. In other words, reviews can mean future income for the writer (me) as well as a wider readership. Even if you don’t like the book, review it! I’d rather have honest bad reviews than none. I like honesty in reviews (and elsewhere for that matter).

On the subject of wider readership, those of you who are writers, and have self published through Amazon, will know about KDP and how, in order to run something like this free promotion, you need to be exclusively tied to Amazon. That’s ok, for a short time, and as a way of running something like this promotion. But I haven’t signed up for automatic renewal, because, once this current session of KDP runs out, towards the end of May, I intend to publish The Frihet Rebellion on Smashwords as well.

The advantage of going with Smashwords is that, not only will my book still be available from Amazon, but it will also become available in various other formats (including epub, pdf etc.) and distributed to sites such as Sony, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Apple and many more, with new ones being added quite regularly. This opens up a huge potential audience for my book, way beyond just Amazon.

At the end of the day, I would like my stories to be read by as many people as possible and, I hope, enjoyed by the majority of them. It’s always an amazing feeling to get good feedback from a reader, either through a review or personally, via email or messaging. It’s wonderful to know your work is appreciated and enjoyed by others. I write because I have stories I want to tell, but it’s an extra boost and added incentive to know there are others following those stories.

So, that’s where we are at the moment. The Frihet Rebellion is free on the kindle for today and tomorrow and, in June, anyone who wants to read it on another ebook reader or in a format other than mobi (kindle), will be able to do so via Smashwords.

Thank you for reading.
