For Libraries

My books are available to libraries!

Digital editions of my books are available to libraries through Overdrive and Bibliotheca. This includes my new releases, as well as new editions of many backlist titles. I used to upload directly to Overdrive, but now am using Pronoun (a Macmillan company) to deliver to both of these library portals. Their interface is easier for me, so new releases will appear more quickly on Overdrive than they did before. I also like their version control better.

Print editions of my books are available to libraries through Ingrams. Some of my books are also available in hard cover editions from Ingrams. You can find them on the Collectors’ Editions page here on the site.

My audiobooks are available to libraries through Overdrive and Blackstone Library. Blackstone makes physical cd’s of my audiobooks for libraries, as well as offering digital download licensing.

Halloween is just around the corner. Do you read spooky books at this time of year? I do, so I thought you might like a list of what’s spooky in my list.

The Experiment

In the quest to do things better and more efficiently, I’ve done some analysis of the year past to plan for the year ahead. One of the things bugging me has been the sales of my print editions. I’ve made them available to the widest number of portals, but that’s meant that the prices on the trade paperbacks have ended up higher than I’d like. There aren’t that many units selling through extended distribution, particularly of backlist titles. I think this might be because there are still used mass market editions out there available cheaply for many of those titles.

So, the experiment begins. I’ve made all of my backlist titles available exclusively through Amazon. This means that the prices have dropped on those editions, particularly in the US. They’ve also dropped a bit in the UK. The difference is pretty significant: instead of most of these titles having a list price of $14.99US and £9.99, they’re now list-priced at $9.99US and £7.99. Some of the longer books—like Fallen—are still more than $10, but not as highly priced as before.

This experiment DOES NOT include the new titles that I’ve indie-published, like The Dragon Legion Collection and Serpent’s Kiss, the True Love Brides Series, Abyss and Beguiled.

Firestorm Forever WILL HAVE extended distribution, too.

We’ll see how this shakes out, then I’ll decide what to do with the Champions of St. Euphemia. Stay tuned!
