Happy Valentine’s Week!
In honor of the holiday, I’ve marked down prices on “The Lycans Series”, and some of my newer short ebooks. The markdowns should be visible on Amazon, Smashwords, and ARe. Lower prices may filter through to other sites before the end of the sale around February 20th.
Sorry for not updating this blog in a long while. It have been a hectic year. I am hard at work on my second series, Space Bounty Hunters, and hope to have it completed by this spring.
I’ve finally completed the second ebook in the Space Bounty Hunter Series called, “The Immortality Backup”. This story wound up being more science fiction adventure, than erotica. It’s still got some romance in it, so you won’t be completely devoid of love in space.
I’m going to risk pricing this ebook slightly higher at $1.99. We’ll see if the market bears that decision out. I am still going to make the first book in the series free at some point. Plus, I’m going to gather all of the stories in this series into a collection to sell for a slightly cheaper price than buying all of the books individually. So, if you don’t want to pay full price, just wait a few months and pick up the collection.
The Immortality Backup
Kerry and her partner are sent into the depths of uninhabited space after a lost scientist. It seems like a simple job to her. No monsters. No aliens to hunt down.
Of course, their quarry, Kipruto Kamei, just happens to be her arrogant former lover and a Corporate research scientist. When Marcus and Kipruto butt heads on the mission, it is only the beginning of their problems.
Turns out, Kipruto is keeping a horrifying secret from them.
Buy on Amazon, ARe, and Smashwords
The Lycans Series Collection is on sale this week for Valentine’s Day. Instead of the normal price it is $2.99 this week!
Check out the Lycans Series at Amazon, ARe, and Smashwords.
The first story, Predator on the Rim, in the Bounty Hunter series is now available on Amazon, ARe, and Smashwords. This is a short one, so I’m posting it for .99 cents. However, I plan on making this story free after I get a few more stories in the series written. So, you can wait a couple of months if you want to save a little money an pick this one up for free.
It’s the new year of 2013! Everything is going well with the new series. I’ve finished the cover and the first story just needs editing. I’m hoping to get it posted within a week or so.
For now, I’ve compiled my seven month sales on Amazon from June through December 2012. As you can see, there were some dramatic changes in the last two months of the year.
You may want to view this chart in a new tab to see it full size. My sales on some books were at zero during some months because I hadn’t yet written them. I didn’t complete the entire series until the beginning of December when I compiled the collection and put it up for sale. Looking at the numbers there are some points that have improved sales quite a bit.
- Series of books do make more sales. Readers that like the first book will purchase the next and the next to find out what happens.
- Make one book in the series free. In November, Amazon price matched Lycan’s Mate, making it free. Downloads jumped into the thousands for that book, which led to sales increasing for the rest of the series.
- Create a collection of stories. In December, I compiled the five stories in the Lycans Series into one book for a higher price of $3.99. This gives readers a chance to save a couple of bucks over buying the individual stories. Amazon’s search algorithmic also gives higher priced books more exposure compared to lower priced books. This gives my series more of a chance to be seen.
Most of the books in the series haven’t been up long enough to stabilize. I don’t yet know if the sales of November and December will remain at these increased levels or if some of the numbers are the result of holiday sales. I may post another sales statement in another six months with sales for this series and the next one.
I’ve gathered all of the lycans stories together into a complete collection for just $3.99. No new content has been added, except for an introduction and a sample from a new series I’m starting at the end of the book. If you want to read the series, but don’t want to pay full price for each story, save a couple of bucks with this complete collection.
The collection is available at Amazon, AllRomanceeBooks, and Smashwords.
I’ve been thinking about posting my sales for the last six months as a nice way of ending this series and moving onto the next. Look forward to a sales numbers post at the beginning of the new year.
I’ve formatted and uploaded Book 3: Lycan’s Promise to Smashwords and All Romance eBooks. This book is the last one in the Lycans Series that follows Sanda’s point of view. I’ve also posted it to Amazon, but they usually take twelve hours or so to publish ebooks to their website.
I had a few more ideas for other stories in the Lycans Series that I may get to down the road, particularly following Garrett, Cami, or Mouse. My next big project will be editing the five stories again and compiling them into one collection for the upcoming holiday. By purchasing the entire set of stories at once, readers should be able to save a few bucks and some shopping time. After that, I’m moving onto another series idea about a futuristic lady who hunts space monsters for a living.
Lycan’s Promise now has an ebook cover! This third book in the Lycans Series is also finished and just about ready to upload for the holiday season. This is the final book in the series as planned and finishes the story of what happens between Sanda and Beryx.
Lycan’s Promise will probably be put up for sale at $1.99 on the three usual sites; Smashwords, Amazon, and ARe.
I plan on bundling the five stories in this ebook series together into one collection before the Christmas holiday. It will almost certainly be cheaper to buy the bundle than the entire series. Anyone who would like waiting a few weeks for a deal, keep an eye on this blog.
I have been tweaking ebook prices again after having some time to see what direction my sales trend. In response, I’ve temporarily made Lycan’s Mate FREE on Smashwords, and ARe. Lycan’s Secret is now .99 cents on all sites. If you’ve read Lycan’s Secret, but haven’t had a chance to read Lycan’s Mate, take advantage of this ebook FREEBIE now.
