Kindle Unlimited and Medieval Romance

Heartbreakers:Three Medieval Romances in one bundle from Claire DelacroixI’ve launched another experiment and wanted to let you all know about it. This summer, I’ve seen a new trend in my sales at various portals. My medieval romances always sold best at Amazon, but over the last few months, the percentages have shifted even more. As a result, I’ve decided to give Kindle Unlimited another try. If the books are mostly selling at Amazon, I might as well take advantage of the exclusivity offers there.

So, I’ve unpublished three series from the other portals and enrolled them in KU. The Rogues of Ravensmuir, The True Love Brides and The Champions of St. Euphemia, as well as the upcoming bundle Heartbreakers, are exclusively at Amazon and mostly enrolled in Kindle Unlimited.

The Crusader's Bride, a medieval romance by Claire DelacroixThere is one straggler—The Crusader’s Bride is in a promotion at Kobo until the end of August, so it will be unpublished from Kobo after that. It won’t be going immediately into KU because it’s going into a special KU bundle. I’ll tell you about that as soon as I can, but it’s an exciting project.

The registration period for Kindle Unlimited is 90 days, so we’ll see how this goes and I’ll reassess in November. In the meantime, if you’re a KU subscriber, here’s your chance to read a lot of my medieval romances!

I’ve also been moving the print distribution on these books from Createspace to KDP. This seems to allow lower pricing, probably because the books are only available to Amazon, and I like getting my trade paperbacks to $9.99 or $10.99US (instead of $14.99 or $16.99US).

Of course, they all remain available in Ingrams editions which are distributed everywhere, so if you don’t shop at Amazon, don’t worry! You can still buy print editions of my books. 🙂

Edited to Add – I’ve added a menu item for Kindle Unlimited so you can easily find links for the books that are enrolled in that program.
