Book price drop and a few other announcements!
Writing is hard.
Not just making up interesting stories and putting them down on (digital) paper, but writing as a business is hard. It's a constantly changing landscape to which writers (like me) need to adapt or lose out.
I haven't been adapting well lately, and my book sales reflect that.
Also, my last week has been like this:
Hyperbole and a Half
But I'm not going to whine about shit not going my way. Boo-fucking-hoo. Instead, I made a plan to do something about it.
- I lowered all my books from $4.99 to $3.99. I'm sorry if you bought Alpha's Gamble at $4.99 and feel cheated. I didn't know I was going to lower the price until Friday. The book isn't selling well, and the only thing I can figure
besides everyone decided they hated meis that the price is too high in the current ebook market. Since I make a living on my books, and I'd like to keep making a living on my books, I have a certain sales threshold to maintain. If that means I have to sell more books at a cheaper price, I can do that. I hope.
- New releases will be $2.99 for the first week! Yep! That means from now on my loyal fans (whom I love, btw, you guys rock!) will get a special discount on every book just for buying it when it comes out. ^_^
- I'll be putting out more stuff, including two new series! I've changed up my writing plans a bit this year. I think I need to diversify my books a bit better to attract more readers, and also to keep from getting bored and complacent. While it does mean that Haven City and Lost Wolves will be spread out a tiny bit more, it also means they'll be new stuff too. Including another wolf series (Alpha's Reign) and a gay superhero series (Darkvale). And who doesn't love gay superheroes?
