Regular blogging will now resume. I hope you found other ways to entertain yourself in the past week.
Anyway, I just wanted to point out that my ebooks are on sale at Amazon and Barnes & Noble — and probably at other places as well. My new publisher’s marketing scheme appears to be to set a list price of $4.99 on Amazon, and then discount from that, so the books look like they are on sale. Which, I guess, they are. So buy them while the prices are low.
Senator remains free. It’s been interesting to see how it has fared on the “bestseller” list of free Kindle books. It peaked somewhere in the 100s on the overall list; now it’s down in the 800s. For a while it was #1 in the political genre; it has now faded to #6. It was also in the top ten for a while in the suspense genre; it is now at #24. As the Underpants Gnomes say: Profit!!
Replica is now available for $0.99. That’s a pretty good deal! But has not yet broken into the top 100,000 for Kindle. Shoot.
Pontiff and Summit are both available for $2.99. Oddly, Pontiff is much higher on the paid Kindle bestseller list than either Replica or Summit. I’m guessing that, at the sales level we’re talking about, a few copies can make a pretty big difference in a book’s ranking.
The ebook release of Dover Beach is going to be delayed so we can publish its sequel, whose title may or may not be Locksley Hall, at the same time. But it shouldn’t be very long.
My goal is to get the ebooks for Forbidden Sanctuary and Marlborough Street out the door by the end of the year.
Then we’ll have a party.
Consider offering Dover Beach and the sequel as a combined bundle. Suzanne Collins did this with the Hunger Games trilogy. I think other authors have done similar bundling.
