As of right now, my book, Agents of the Third Party: BlackMail: The Beginning has been available exclusively on Amazon. I had done this primarily because of Kindle Unlimited. In order to be a part of Kindle Unlimited you have to publish your work exclusively with Amazon. By doing this, people who subscribe to Kindle Unlimited can read your work for free. As an author I still get paid out on those who read it free on Kindle Unlimited.
However, I do not get paid as much as if you actually bought it. But that’s ok, if it means more people are able to read, and hopefully enjoy, my work then the trade off is worth it.
It has not been worth it.
I have seen very few people take up the Kindle Unlimited offer and most seem to buy either the ebook or the paperback. Soooo rather then continue to limit myself to just Amazon, and ignore all of the other stores out there, I will be launching BlackMail in more locations. I intend to have it available for preorder, hopefully tomorrow (New post for that then! Contain your excitement!) with an expected launch date of July 1st. Just in time for my birthday.
I haven’t worked much with the other sites however, so I’ll be exploring Barnes and Nobles, Smashwords, Lulu, Apple books, Kobo and whatever others I find tonight. (I’m stuck at work today, on fathers day no less! Damn you need for money to pay bills! Damn you!)
There will be more coming to this announcements. This is just the first part, so keep updated. Maybe subscribe to my RSS feed…I have one of those right? Or follow me on Facebook or better yet Twitter.
More Coming soon!
