I thought I'd share a couple pieces of exciting news going on in my world of writing and self-publishing...
First of all, I am giddy as hell because Amazon announced they are now granting self-published authors the opportunity to advertise their upcoming new eBooks for pre-order sales! Pre-orders sales have been a huge--HUGE--edge that published authors have over the self-published authors at Amazon. Leveling that playing field somewhat is fantastic news for us little guys. (Within the past few months, Smashwords offered self-published authors the ability to put their eBooks up for pre-order sales at B&N/Nook and iTunes books. You go, Mark Coker! )
And the second piece of fun news? The fourth book in the ongoing series of The Adventures of Anabel Axelrod is going to soon be up for pre-order sales at Barnes & Noble/Nook and iTunes/books. It will be available on Amazon/Kindle, too, but that will take another month or so.
For Anabel fans, here's a sneak peek of the new book cover. I'll keep you posted when Adieu to Destiny is available for pre-order sales. I am sure Ms. Wheeler-Dealer Axelrod will want to offer a pre-order promotion you simply can't pass up! :}
