I’ve put most of the following information in a YouTube video, so if you’d rather watch, the link is here:
So straight to it:
1) By late November most of my catalog of books will be available on KOBO! I met a rep from Kobo at Penned Con and was impressed with all that they have to offer.
In addition, I will be across other major platforms, iBooks and Google books in the near future.
What does this mean to you, the reader?
I am grateful for Amazon and my books will still be there. HOWEVER if you read only one part of this post NOTE that if you have downloaded FREE books from me from Amazon, you will want to read them ASAP. Once I move from exclusivity with Amazon, I can not guarantee that the previous free offers will remain. PLEASE read them, review, etc. I MIGHT have one last free book drive through Amazon, but again, Amazon frequently changes rules and programs. So fire up those kindles.
AND now you will be able to find my books on other platforms! I am broadening my reach as I have readers in many other countries and truly appreciate all of you!
2) The move to other platforms will delay some releases and I sincerely apologize. I have a TON of new promos coming out including new book trailers. Lafayette to London and coloring books will most likely arrive in 2020, however…
3) The latest Vampire’s Little Black Book series story, “The Body Farm” will be out in time for Halloween!! Yes it will be on Amazon first, because it will be entered in Amazon’s Pen To Publish contest. I would appreciate your reads and reviews!
4) “A Dream of Emerald Skies” was in the semi finals of Amazon’s UK Storytellers Competition. It did not go into further rounds, however, it still is in competition for an Amazon Originals contest. So again I appreciate your support. There’s going to be some major push through March. Please watch for giveaways, etc. This is my first mature young adult steampunk novel.
5) The old craft friendly Etsy is gone. It’s no longer a viable selling channel for me. Again, I will shut it down soon. If you see something in my store, grab it NOW. I don’t have an exact closing date. Feel free to contact me if you see something you like. Updated shopping links will come in 2020 as well.
6) In the continuing to say goodbye mode, I am done with certain shows, collaborations, and most certainly flakes. I had one person flake on me twice this summer and it put me behind almost a whole MONTH. Not a rant, just a fact. I am blessed to work with a lot of talented people, and I’m going to focus on that moving forward.
7) October is going to be an event filled month. Watch this space for a lot of costuming and fun pics. I am looking forward to getting out for some fun activities.
Please enjoy a preview of what’s to come!
