I just found out about a NEW feature that Amazon will be rolling out in the coming weeks (October?). It’s called Kindle MatchBook and I’m very excited about it both as a reader and an author. The way it works is, for select print books purchased as far back as 1995 from Amazon, you will be able to (if the authors/publishers choose to enroll) purchase a Kindle copy for a greatly reduced price. Some may even be FREE depending on the original book price and publisher choice.
I have just enrolled all 3 of my current books so that anyone who has purchased a print copy from Amazon will be able to get the Kindle version for just 99 cents. It has already occurred to me that some of you may have purchased my print books elsewhere and I plan to make every effort to extend this to you as well. Even if you have an e-reader other than a Kindle, I have plans to make a similar offer available. Stay tuned for more info.
I just had to share this picture. If you don’t know Hugh Howey, he is a MAJOR successful indie author. His sci-fi hit WOOL and it’s prequel SHIFT are very popular. Will is a big fan and he kept after me until he got me to read these two books while I was in the middle of writing my 6th book (it was hard reading someone elses work while I wrote my own). Well, I really enjoyed these riveting stories and would highly recommend them and we are both anxiously awaiting the next book, DUST. Anyway, Will saw a picture Hugh posted on facebook holding Bella Andre’s From This Moment On. There were several people who had done photo-chops so Will decided to add his own. So funny!
I wish everyone a Happy 4th of July. Today I have the bittersweet news that I have finished the initial write of Book 7 in my Children of Angels series. I’m happy to have completed the book, but now, I must return to begin editing Book 4. As I’ve posted in the past, I know editing is important and required to give you, my readers, the best possible experience…but I do so miss the creativity of writing while I am editing. Lots of new characters and new experiences coming in the next books. Can’t wait to share them with you.
I’m pleased to announce that I’m participating in the fifth annual Smashwords Summer/Winter promotion. During this promotion, you can get all 3 of my books (as well as those of MANY other authors) in your favorite e-book formats at a BIG discount. Check it out.
I’ve always wished I could get a discount on e-books that I have in print, well if you’ve already gotten my books in print, you can now get all 3 e-books for a grand total of $4.00 using the coupon codes shown for each book. If you haven’t started reading my books, now is a GREAT time to start. The nice thing about Smashwords is you can choose any format that works for you, Kindle, Nook, ipad/iphone, Sony or Kobo. You don’t even have to have an e-reader, you can download PDF files to read on your computer.
I have been a little apprehensive about how my books would go over in the UK, since my main character and her family is from there and a good portion of the story is based there. Well, I recently got my first review from a reader in the UK and it was indeed positive!
Not only that, but it was from a fellow author there!! As I’ve been completely consumed in writing my series I haven’t had a chance to read any of her books yet, but I feel the least I can do is share her information. Some of you might find something of interest.
I just checked and Amazon still has my print books marked down as I posted before. I have no idea how long this will last, but I’m sure it won’t be for much longer, given past evidence. If you haven’t gotten my books yet, and want print versions, this is a great opportunity to get a deal on them. My e-books are still marked down from their original prices as well. Book 1 is still only 99¢. Take a look at the reviews for Book 1:
You can read the e-book many ways. It’s available for all e-readers, iPad, iPhone, etc. If you would like to read it and are not sure how to do it on your device, email me at nataliedw2 @ gmail.com or message me on facebook. Will and I will do our best to help you get started reading my series.
I’m happy to say that my first book IMMORTAL REBORN: ARIANNA’S CHOICE has received 2 more positive reviews today. It is now at a 4.7 out of 5 average for 11 reviews on Amazon. Not too bad for a first novel, I think. I hope those of you who have read it and haven’t reviewed or rated will agree. Even if you don’t choose to write a review, you can easily just leave a star rating.
If you haven’t read my first book, take advantage of Amazon’s currently reduced price, or order it directly from my createspace store. If you e-read, get it while the 99¢ price lasts on Kindle or from most other e-book sellers, or if you prefer brick & mortar…visit The Book Tavern on Broad Street in Augusta, GA for your copy. I believe most other brick and mortar book stores can order a copy for you as well, if you are not in the Augusta Area. Ask at your favorite book store!
I don’t know how long it will last, but I just noticed today that Amazon has lowered the price on my first two books by 10% and the third by over 25%. If you’ve been wanting to get any of my books in print, now is a great time.
Also, don’t forget that I’ve lowered the prices on my e-books. Book 1 is just 99¢ for a limited time, book 2 is only $2.99 and book 3 is now just $4.99
