*I will post your comment and my answer here so be sure to check back.
Hi Have read all your Blue Bandits MC books and will start on your Security Seals. I live in Australia and can get these books through my Kobo account. On your site you have Red Devils MC books which don't appear on the Kobo site, at least not the Australian one.
Hi, Shirley. I will put them up at Kobo when I've managed to get them edited. I don't want to put them up on anymore platforms until they're edited. Hopefully one day soon I will have the funds to have them edited but currently the funds are not available.
I was wondering why you don't put your books for sale on smashwords as that is a site I buy a lot of my books from? how some you don't use smashwords?
Hi Adele, Strangely enough this is one I am unsure how to answer other than to say that when I first began writing I only knew about Amazon's Indie platform. After I joined the author communities on Facebook I realized there were many more platforms to use. I picked them up as I learned of them but so far haven't tried Smashwords because I just haven't had time to wade through the paperwork. So I guess the answer would be that eventually I might get around to putting them on there but for now I am overloaded with the ones I already publish on. I hope this answer helps. Like I say when I get time I will look into it (LOL) but lately with life and writing it's all I can do to get it out at the ones I currently use. ;-)
Really like the Blue Bandits series
Hi Kathie, Thanks so much for the words of encouragement! I'm glad you love my Blue Bandits series. Don't worry there will be at least four more books in that series even though I'm currently working on a new one. ;-) It's another biker series. It's about two people who are unlikely to work together and yet somehow fit. It's coming out sometime in December of this year. Again glad you enjoyed the books and thanks for your kind words!
Hi. I' m curious as to why the cost of this book (bk2 of devil arms mc) is double the first one and is shorter in length. You are asking 5.00 for a book less than 170 pgs. Seems a bit pricey. I could see it if it was over 300 pgs or printed trade paperback but an ebook? Not so much.
I am sorry you feel the price is too high. The first book is on sale for the next month because the second one is out. These books are actually close to the same length. In print they are both around 210 pages. Kindle always underestimates this number even with nook its 210 page count. The first book has a teaser of another book at the end of the first one which makes the kindle page count higher.
I can tell you that most of my future books will be this price due to the cost of the editing/graphic design work/cost of advertising. All these things add up to be about 1500-2500 a book sometimes more. I am sorry if I lose readers but I have to be able to make a profit. I don't even recoup my losses until the second or third month after the book is out. If I sold more copies perhaps I could charge less but being a mid-lister writer means things are hard. I write because I love to share my stories with people who love reading them. Unfortunately, that comes with a price tag and sometimes it's a steep one. I hope this helps you to know that I am not trying to take advantage of my readers it's just impossible to pay for all the things that are required for each book and keep the cost at 2.99. I am not doing what some other indie authors are doing: I don't split a single book into three or four and charge 2.99 each. I don't sell a 50 page book with another one thats 50 pages to make it look longer. I try to respect anyone who reads my work and hope that they know I will always try to provide them with an enjoyable experience.
I try to do what's best for my readers and make enough profit to put out the next book. If readers are unhappy about this I am very sorry. I love you all and appreciate you reading my work.
