I have some good thoughts to add to my assessment of KDP, and am very happy for authors that can take advantage of the pre-order function; sales were definitely affected, although I think that is mostly because the book is buried faster.
Without those pre-order numbers, you drop much quicker into obscurity. Blackstone Fever is OUT! The great pre-order debacle is over and Blackstone Fever, the second book in the Blue Mountain Dynasty Trilogy is out today! Armand Blackstone wants very little in life, and needs even less--he's a millionaire in his own right, and scion of the Blackstone Empire.
Blackstone Fire: A Blue Mountain Dynasty Romance (The Blue Mountain Dynasty Book 1)
He has everything at his fingertips, ev. I have cancelled the pre-order for Blackstone Fever. I just can't take the chance that you are paying 2. I think the responsible thing to do is to take my licks, cancel the pre-order, and do the following: I read JA Konrath's thoughts on the pre-order feature for amazon, and for those among us that don't need long-winded, apologetic, partially-whiny rants for that, please see below and believe me, I'm not talking about Konrath here , the short and long of it is this: It may be enjoyable to see how many folks line up for a particular book before it's d.
I have some thoughts about how to introduce the final book in this series, but they're not confident ones. Some questions for series writers who use cliffhangers and the readers who love them: Do you want a preview of the action in the book description, or do you basically just want to make sure that the finale is really that--a finale?
No loose ends, everybody where they're supposed to be, and the details are better found inside the book? I'm nervous about spoilers for the fina. All or most Books Now on Kindle Unlimited. So I did something, mostly because people I respect have either been doing it or said it was a good idea--people who not only write books I really enjoy but who also have business sense that actually makes sense. I put all my books up on KDP Select, which translates to: I don't like giving in to the monopoly of amazon, but I can't ignore the fact that the other two platforms I was using haven't had.
Yes, smarter much smarter people than me have been telling me I really need to get on Facebook, and I finally am giving it an honest try. I started a page a couple of years ago, chickened out and killed it, and then asked one of these smart folks to make me a page this fall; finally, doing some research, it appears that if I'm going to run my mouth on twitter and a blog anyway FB is actually a really good idea.

Single White Witch Seeks Same by Jorja Tabu
This book meant a great deal to me and is my favorite, of all the ones I've written including the half dozen or so that will never see the light of day, being early endeavors or. Every year I make a list of the projects I want to focus on. It is usually bombastic and slightly insane, which are words you may feel free to use in describing me, my Ukranian friends; I'm okay with that. This year, I thought I'd rein it in a bit and focus on publishing some projects I've been working half-assedly on forever. In addition to this attempt at direct attention I wanted to focus on heroines and heroes that are members of communities that feel under attack right now.
Pre-Order Update for Blackstone Fever. So, I made a rookie mistake. I am very sorry if this disappointed someone--there were only 14 pre-orders set up for this book, so hopefully all 14 of you obsessively read my blog and know I feel like a jerk. Lesson learned--I changed the date of my pre-order for Blackstone Fever and got a spanking from amazon. No more pre-orders for a year. The thing is, I did this mostly because I was thinking of the third book--not the second. I could've totally published it on th.
I know that there are a ton of other writers out there that have spoken on it, but I also have the feeling, having read many of them, that they are much more successful monetarily than someone like me, and that there are, frankly, many more authors that make the kind of money I do than the money they do that's why their experiences are so easy to find. Seriously, that's the highest ranking any of my books has hit. It's a huge deal for me, so thank you to everyone that has scooped a copy--I can't even, dude. I am also dropping the cover for its sequel which is also--dundunDUN--available for pre-order now!
I seriously can't say thank you enough to everybody. Much much xoxox on this Xmas eve. Update, later that night: Playlist for Blackstone Fire, and other lil thangs My book is going live tomorrow and I'm super excited to be trying a bunch of new things! Amazon's pre-order feature Makes me feel like a grown-up! Which really means simultaneously plotting out three separate arcs and several overlapping big ole arcs I have no idea how well I did this, but was it awesome to try it out. Going deeper down the path of romantic suspense, which for some reason lately I find really satisfying.
So I lowered the cost of my book--someone much, much smarter than me pointed out that a loss-leader would be good business sense in a series, and since I'm experimenting with promotion anyway I thought, why the hell not?
