It is with with much regret that I inform all of you wonderful readers out there that we have pulled the ebook versions of all the Rift books, including the omnibus, from Barnes and Noble and Kobo and re-entered them in Amazon Select.
Unfortunately, we could simply gain no traction in either of those markets like we can with Amazon. Being a small publisher, and having very little sway in the marketplace, it hurts our bottom line to not use every tool available to us...and the Select program is one of those tools. Now, if we were selling well in even one of those other markets, I would hesitate to do this. But as it stands, they do not. Hence the change.
Select carries with it a 3-month term of exclusivity to Amazon, so it is entirely possible that, if things go well with a certain--ahem—other project I am working on, they could be added again come April. A possibility, not a certainty.
That's it for now. Stay tuned for some very exciting news in the coming weeks, all you fantasy fans out there!
Here we are again, doing the slow unveiling in other stores as our books drop out of the Amazon Select program. Two more down, the last two by the end of the month!
The Fall: The Rift Book I
Dead of Winter: The Rift Book II
Does horror and a crafter's festival dedicated to the love of strawberries mix? Well, yes sir it does! Okay, maybe not, but it's still a neat idea.
The Cranky Artist and myself joined the NEHW at the festival yesterday (June 16th), and got to hang out with a few of our fellow horrorphiles. The sales may have lacked, but it was certainly a fun experience and one that we will be sure to partake in again.
Here are some pics from the event:
Sign for the attendees. For some reason they listed me first and the Cranky Artist last, which meant we got to embrace them all in a sweaty meat sandwich.
One of the NEHW tables...
...and the other, complete with me and one of Kristi Petersen Schoonover's random friends. (Sorry Michelle!)
The same table, this time starring the Cranky Artist, looking slightly less cranky than usual.
Stacey Longo telling David Price and Rob Watts what's up.
Stacey...still chatting...taking a break from hacking the shit out of the manuscript in her lap.
Jason Harris and the rest of us chatting up a rather hyper potential buyer.
Kristi chatting toward the end of the day.
I am the lord of all I survey.
Me and my ladies. And no, my head's not that small. Damn camera angles.
So there you go! Fun times, new friends made, and fun discussions had by all. Now to find a way to do more of these...
