Today, November 26, 2013, I am releasing two brand new novels simultaneously.
(A Nicholas Colt Thriller), and its follow-up SYCAMORE BLUFF
(A Nicholas Colt/Diana Dawkins Thriller). The e-book version of each is priced at $4.99, so you can get both for less than ONE new release from a traditional publisher.
Has anyone ever released two new novels at the same time? If so, I'm not aware of it.
In the old days, before the e-book revolution, such a thing would have been nearly impossible. Most publishers didn't want their authors releasing more than one book a YEAR, fearful that the market wouldn't tolerate multiple annual titles from a single author. But those days are long gone, and now it's theoretically possible for an author to publish ten (or a hundred!) books concurrently if he or she wants to.
With e-books, there is unlimited shelf space, so these novels will be just as available for instant purchase ten years from now as they are today. And e-books are priced lower than paper books, so customers can enjoy more titles for less money.
I should note that BLOOD TATTOO is also available in trade paperback
, and that SYCAMORE BLUFF will soon be available in that format as well. Some people prefer paper and are willing to pay the extra price for it, and there's nothing wrong with that. You can even skip reading altogether and listen to the audiobook version
of BLOOD TATTOO if that's your preference.
More choices = a better literary experience for everyone.
It's a great time to be a writer, and a book lover.
