The most exciting thing about ebooks is that I can offer these books at a third of the price of the printed copies. Yay!
|A Bid For Love - available on ebook!|
All that takes time away from my “day” job of writing for my regular publisher. When I do release the older books in print, I will have to charge the higher price demanded by the print-on-demand company, which prints a book at a time, as opposed to traditional publishing which prints larger amounts, but which have to be all paid for in advance—something you can’t do for older books that will likely sell fewer than ten percent of the ebook copies.
That means the people who want my older books in print form have to pay three times what they would have paid for the same ebook. No more books for $5.99 or $6.99. Nope, they would be $14.99 or more like the $17.99 that my publisher charges for my new novels. Yikes!
So if someone bought ten of my older ebooks instead of print copies, they would save more than enough to buy a Kindle. Or throw in the other five, and two of my newer books (my publisher discounts even new ebooks from $17.95 to $9.99), and with your savings, you could buy a Kindle Fire or a nice Android phone or an iPod and download a Kindle app. Once you have done this, you can get the less expensive ebooks, AND you are also ready to participate in any free ebooks offer authors/publishers sometimes send out during promotions. Win-win! And you never have to worry about not having enough room for more books.
Now I haven’t mentioned the Nook because I sell less than ten percent of my ebooks there, and it’s because of Amazon’s KDP program, that authors and publishers can occasionally offer books for free during very limited promotion days. So, if you have a Nook, you’ll need to root it or buy a special card if you want Kindle books.
That said, I want to invite you to download two FREE Kindle books to jumpstart your savings!
