I’ve just finished my first experiment with putting a book on Kindle. My first published novel HIDDEN AGENDA should be available to download by Friday, May 27, 2011. The Romance Writers of America’s mystery chapter gave this unique mystery the “Kiss of Death Award” for Best Book of Romantic Suspense––it features an astrologer sleuth, along with a cast of colorful characters. Lots of people have asked where they could get copies, because it’s been out of print for a while, so I’m excited to bring HIDDEN AGENDA out again in this new format. The original print edition got some great reviews (see a few on Amazon.com), and I hope you’ll enjoy reading it, too. I’ve priced the slightly revised and updated Kindle version at $5.99, but you can still purchase signed, first edition trade paperbacks from my website for $9.99 (quantities limited).
Fellow writers, if you’re considering putting your books on Kindle, the process involves some work and a little savvy, but not as much as I’d expected. If I can do it, so can you. It’s a great way to give new life to your books. Amazon.com’s program walks you through the necessary steps. During the first quarter of this year, industry reports showed that sales of e-books topped print paperbacks for the first time in history, so the market is definitely expanding.
Other reasons to buy e-books? You can store dozens of them on a computer/reading device, so it’s easier to travel with e-books than print books. Plus they’re “green”––no trees get sacrificed, no ink pollutes the earth, no used or unsold books end up in landfills.
Please share your thoughts with me if you care to do so. And please consider writing a review on Amazon.com if you feel inspired. You might even encourage me to finish the next book in the series.
