Things that are a pain!

Setting up a Contact Form so people can email me turned out to be a HUGE pain in the backside. Hours wasted, and the worst was that all it took was one call to my webhost, literally 2 seconds on the part of Evan the awesome tech, and it was done.

At least I hope it’s done.

A story of mine is included in an anthology

One of my short stories, The Prank, which was included in Stories from Arisa, is now in a free anthology titled Through the Suffering of Others. It’s a strong collection put together by J.R. Karlsson and features stories written by some great indie authors, including bestsellers like Lindsay Buroker and Tony Healey. The best part is that it’s free. Right now, it’s simply a downloadable Epub and MOBI file , but hopefully Amazon et al will soon stock it and let J.R. put it out for free.

Here’s the link which also has a description of the included stories.

Other E-readers

I hate to do this, but I’m going to have to. The thing is, of  my sales, well over 95% of them have come through Amazon. I don’t like being limited to a single distribution hub, but by the same token, I can’t overlook the influence Amazon has on the ebook marketplace. Or the promotion and marketing they offer to ebooks sold exclusively through their website.

For now, I’m going to make A Warrior’s Path exclusive to Amazon once again (A Warrior’s Knowledge currently is as well). I’m making this decision based on prior history. There was a prior period of time when A Warrior’s Path was in the Kindle Select Program (exclusive), and it seemed to sell better than it did after I made it available on Nook, Kobo, and Smashwords i.e. selling it through multiple sites didn’t make up for the seemingly lost sales when I took the book out of the Kindle Select Program.

We’ll see how it works out…
