In the next few weeks I’ll be working on getting “Chase of a Lifetime” distributed to other web sites where e-books are sold. Two of them will be the Kobo bookstore and Allromanceebooks.com. The reason why I haven’t distributed the book anywhere other than Amazon up until now is because I opted for the Lender Program with Amazon and I had to sign an exclusive with them for a certain period of time. I thought it was worth it, and I’m doing the same thing with my next Amazon release, “Jonah Sweet of Delancey Street.”
The price for “Chase of a Lifetime,” will remain at .99 at the other web sites, too. I’ve seen other indie authors do this and I’m not going to change it. My goals with COAL have been many, one of which includes learning indie publishing from the bottom up. And I don’t like the idea of charging one price on one web site and another price on another. If I were shopping for a book it would irritate the hell out of me. And all in publishing need to understand it’s about the reader.
On another note, I found this advertisement interesting. “Reminisce Magazine,” which I mainly read because I love the old cars and the stories about the old cars…gay men love their cars and toys, which is something I often find missing in a lot of gay romances these days. We even belong to car clubs and have social events that revolve around our cars. At least most of the gay men I know do this.
In any event, as you can see I still read “Reminisce” in hard copy, as I do with all of my magazine subscriptions. I haven’t warmed up to reading magazines in digital format yet, especially those where photos are important. But for those who are so inclined, here’s a link where you can find out more about “Reminisce” on Kindle Fire. I have to admit the price isn’t bad at all. And I’ll be rethinking my magazine reading habits next time my subscription needs to be renewed.
