I know it’s not Mothers’ Day all over the world. Sue me, I’m in the U.S. and I didn’t even realise it was this weekend here until Friday leaving work, okay?
Anyway, Love or Lustis 100% off anywhere I could set it. Ready or Not is 50% off in all the same places. Oh, did I mention this sale is going to run all week?
As usual I’ve too little practical control over Nook and Kindle pricing. Amazon will probably eventually price match me, but I can’t say when. Kindles and Nooks can read the files you’d get from All Romance eBooks, so I recommend users of those devices consider that source.
I know, a Lesbian Teen Romance, what kind of Mother’s Day gift is that?
I don’t know. I suppose I was thinking about all of those lesbian mothers out there who in the past year have seen their lives validated and vindicated somewhat in … is it 38 states, plus DC and Puerto Rico now? Some people prefer YA/Teen fiction; I mean some of the best new books I’ve read in the past decade was the Harry Potter series. Maybe it could be a way for some of my lesbian/bi female readers to prime their mother(s) for letting her/them know about the new fiancée and future daughter-in-law they’ll be meeting today? Give me a break, it makes more sense than some of the places out there having a sale this weekend.
And, whether you’re a mother of human kids or furry/feathered/scaly ones have a happy Mothers’ Day whether you grab a copy of my books or not.
For not real reason beyond “I can” I’ve put Love or Lust on sale for 100% off (that’s free for those who may need another cup of coffee before following maths) and Ready or Notis marked down to 99¢! Just for today. It ends some time tomorrow.
Other ebook stores? No, not today anyway. I might randomly work my way through all of them, and the sales may not be exactly the same on all (especially given some don’t allow the same sorts of sales options), but my Apple using fans have a treat this Sunday. You’re welcome.
Why Apple first? Possibly because I have a new Android phone (it was $20 and my Samsung flip was so old it wasn’t fully compatible with texting anymore so it seemed like a good idea at the time) and while I kind of like the hardware I want to slap whoever designed Android, so there’s possibly a subconscious impetus behind starting with Apple. Or, I might be starting with A. I don’t really know. This was, frankly, a whim that came to me like 1minute ago while I was perusing Twitter.
I should have posted this sooner, but I’ve had a distracting week. Some of it good, too much of it bad.
Regardless, Now & Forever is on sale for the entire month of December wherever it’s possible (which pretty much just means Not Nook, though some Amazon stores might not have marked it down properly either).
As always, this exclusively applies to the eBooks. The way the print books are done gives me almost no promotional capacity myself. Also, the books are sold at very little profit so promotions on the print edition would not go well.
As I sit here enjoying a bit of pizza while waiting for my power to be restored (gas stove, lights by match … modern gas oven with buttons? Not so much) I’ve hit the end of Ready or Not!!
Okay, I feel very good about what I have. I still have to give it back to my editor, though. Still … depending her own workload this could be out as early as next month, but expect April or May with June on the outside.
I’m thinking I might put Love or Lust on sale to celebrate. I’ll get back to you on that. Sales are a wretch from a cell phone and no computer at the moment.
P.s. Forgive me if my typos are worse than usual, I am using a cell phone.
Happy holidays. I don’t care what you celebrate, I hope it’s very merry.
In celebration of Christmas, the winter solstice, the new year, and anything else that might be worth celebrating between the 20th of December, and the 1st of January I’ve made Love or Lustonly 99¢ (US — 45p UK, and upwards of 50 other values around the world).
Yes, I mean the eBook. As I’ve said before, I can’t make the print edition much cheaper or what I make would actually be a negative number (yes, as in I’d actually owe the printer more for them than I sold it for).
Looking at my Amazonsales ranks it would seem that selling copies of the books lowers my rank and not selling them raises it.
No I don’t mean my numbers get closer to 1 in the former, and further in the latter … I mean my chart-toppingness decreased with sales and increased without them.
I wish I were kidding, but one example involved going down several ranks after selling four copies in five and a half hours. Not bad, actually, but has been better. I wouldn’t have thought anything of it, as I said, could be better. Except over the course of another six hours I sold zero copies and my sales rank improved.
I’ve a terrible feeling that Amazon’s algorithm for their rankings has a divides where there should be a multiplies or vice versa. Or an add where it needs a subtract or similar. That has to be it. And remember folks, the people doing this math are probably the same programmers responsible for the security of your purchase, account, and payment information. I know I’m impressed.
God, I’m sorry folks, I got distracted and completely forgot to schedule a post announcing a sale!
Luckily it is for the entire month of July, and if you shop on Smashwords already then it would have kindly told you to use code SW50 to get Love or Lust half off.
Lots and lots of books 25%, 50%, 75%, even 100% off today. A lot of authors presenting their hard work at discount for us. So today I’m posting my link to the promotion. Err … There’s a lot of erotica on Smashwords. They kindly turn on an Adult Content filter by default, but be forewarned – or, if that’s your thing, I suppose you could call it rather a plus … just remember to turn the filter off (I work in Tech Support, if you don’t think people have to be told this kind of thing – I’m terribly sorry, but I must excuse myself to laugh until I hyperventilate).
