Going Wide, Take Two

So in my last post, I mentioned that Pronoun was shutting down and, as a result, my books were temporarily unavailable in a variety of formats as I searched for another outlet with which to distribute my work. Through it all, my work was still up on Amazon, because I go directly through KDP when publishing for Kindle.

Well, I went with Draft2Digital, a company similar to Pronoun that publishes to most of the same formats (not Google Play at this time, but if/when that changes, I’ll put my books up there too) — and a few outlets I’ve never heard of.

So now, for the most part, my books are now available in a variety of digital formats.

As of this blog post, BountyBlood TiesBehind the Badge and Notna are now available on iBooks, Nook, Kobo, Scribd, 24 Symbols, Indigo, and Angus & Robertson — in addition to Kindle and paperback.

In addition, Behind the Mask is available for pre-order on Kindle, iBooks, Nook, Kobo, and Angus & Robertson.

In the future (unless Draft2Digital goes the way of Pronoun), I’ll be using that outlet for my digital distribution outside of Amazon. The plan is to continue providing my books in multiple formats, including paperback, on multiple outlets in an effort to make my work available to as many people as possible.

Let’s just hope this one sticks for a while. Re-publishing takes time away from writing new ones.

My latest release, Notna, is available on Amazon and other digital outlets. Also, Behind the Mask, the fourth book in the Jill Andersen series, is live for pre-order and will be on digital shelves on Dec. 4.

Important Book News Regarding Pronoun

Pronoun shocked the publishing world on Monday when it announced that it will be shutting its doors in January and will no longer be accepting new book submissions for publication. This news comes roughly a month after I had “gone wide” with my books, using Pronoun to publish them on such outlets as Nook, Kobo, iBooks and Google Play.

So that’s less than ideal.

As a result, I have removed my books — BountyBlood TiesBehind the Badge, and Notna — from Pronoun, which means in the coming days, those books will no longer be available for purchase through those outlets.

These books are still available on Amazon for Kindle and paperback readers.

I’m in the process of uploading my books to Draft2Digital, an outlet similar to Pronoun that will again allow my work to be available to ebook readers who do not use a Kindle or the Kindle app. As of this writing, D2D does not feature Google Play, but it’s their hope (and mine) that changes in the coming months.

Pronoun’s abrupt demise is demoralizing for a lot of authors, but D2D looks to be as easy-to-use, and I’m eager to again ensure that my work is available to as many potential readers as possible. Kindle is still the bulk of my sales (if one takes out the in-person sales I rake in at conventions and other such events), but it’s nice to be able to give readers options.

Once my books are again available in other formats, I will let you all know.

My latest release, Notna, is available in paperback as well as Kindle. Check out Notna on Amazon.
