The KDP thing was OK. Just OK. Wasn’t bad, wasn’t great. Well, that’s not entirely accurate.
The Good: with KDP I was graciously allowed to advertise with Kindle, and the readers of KDP Select could read the book freely.
The Bad: I couldn’t distribute the book under any of the other normal routes, like Barnes and Noble, Apple, Kobo or Google or, of course, Smashwords.
Which means I missed out on promotional periods like the Smashwords End of Year Sale.
Live and learn. Well, you know what? End of Year is today, and the sale is on until tomorrow, so I’ve added all my books as free AND, plus, also, to boot, Tedrick Gritswell is now available in Smashwords!
Head to https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/773708
and get your copy in whatever format you’d like. Be sure to use the coupon code EY100 at the checkout.
Give it a few days and it’ll be up on iTunes and Google and the rest (not free, sorry).
And is set to splash its way all across your e-reader? Tedrick!
That’s right, everyone’s favourite octopus detective is due for release tomorrow, 1st of June!
OMG! I’ll be holding my own little celebration, but I can’t celebrate for too long, no sir. There are too many things to do. I’m still getting AMS to play ball, and then there’s the hardcopy to finalise, and distributions. Man, it almost makes me wish I had multiple limbs! Sorry, Ted, I know you’re still smarting about your missing arm.
You can find Tedrick Gritswell of Borobo Reef at the Amazon store here, for the price of a cup of coffee. And once I’ve passed the required number of days, I’ll publish to Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, iTunes, Kobo and Google Play. Or you can download the mobi or pdf and import that into your reader – I’ve heard that works.
Thanks for sticking with me on this ride. I’ll continue with the hardcopy KDP journey in a day or two, once I’ve shaken off the darkwater hangover.
