We’ve got a lot planned for 2023, including more frequent blog posts on our site to keep people updated with the happenings in the Land of Impact, but the first one is a biggie.
We have made the decision to discontinue our books on the Smashwords service. This also means that, by extension, we will cease publishing ebooks through Barnes & Noble, Apple, Kobo, and any of the other channels supported by Draft2Digital. This decision was not made with any kind of malice toward Smashwords and Draft2Digital. Despite my misgivings about their payment processing, they had proved to be easy partners to work with. However, the Smashwords website is terrible to browse and no amount of price reductions or advertising produced extra sales in that channel. So while I am still open to the idea of independent channels to distribute electronic copies of our work, we have to be realistic when it comes to sales, and with 99% of sales going through the Kindle store on Amazon, it only makes sense to support that direction at this stage.
And that means all three Frenzi novels are available for free reading through Kindle Unlimited! If you subscribe to the Kindle Unlimited service, you instantly gain access to over 500 pages of high caliber action!
I’m hoping that if some readers were on the fence before, this will give them the chance to take the plunge without the extra commitment of spending $3.99. Which, as anyone will agree, is still a reasonable price to pay for the bullet-riddled excitement lurking between the covers of each Frenzi novel.
Speaking of which, we’ll have another big announcement in our next post, which will detail our release plans for this year! I can hardly wait!
