I’m trying one of my experiments in publishing, this time with print editions of my books, and I could use your help. My print editions are available at Amazon through their print services but also are available to bookstores from Ingrams. Ingrams offers a lot of options, and I’ve recently changed up my choices to make stocking my books more appealing to bricks-and-mortar bookstores located in the US. The following series are included in my experiment:
If you are in the US, have a favorite local bookstore and would like to see my books there, please ask them about stocking them. Discoverability is a bit of a challenge in this market, and your request would certainly help bring your local bookseller’s attention to my books, and their availability. Thank you! 🙂
The buy links for the new hard cover editions of the books in the Champions of St. Euphemia series have perked through to most of the portals. (There are a couple that are slower.)
I’ve added the links to the page, including the option of buying signed copies directly from me. Until I finish converting the individual book pages to the new editor, you can find them all on the last page under the Champions tab, Hard Cover Editions.
I’m still waiting for my copies to arrive, but I’ll show them to you when they do. 🙂
I’m doing an update on my websites this month, and hope to get it done by the end of September.
The first phase involves updating to a new editor from WordPress, which will make the content easier to read (especially on your phone).
Concurrent with that, I’m adding cute little buy buttons (!) as well as the option of buying signed print books directly from me. This editor also has a neat option for sharing audiobook samples, which I’ll use when there is an audiobook available.
You can see what the new pages will look like on the only one I’ve done on this site so far — One Knight Enchanted.
Each individual book page will include buy links for individual signed books and series bundles – which make more sense, given the cost of postage. As on my other sites, I’ll put the series bundles of print books on the Store tab.
After I get the update done, I’ll dig out my inventory of books and add more options. I know, for example, that I still have some mass market paperbacks of the Rogues of Ravensmuir, and maybe a few Bride Quest books, too.
Of course, you can always order bookplates from me for free. 🙂
Here’s a new shopping option if you collect print editions of my books.
If you live in the US, you can order my books directly from Ingrams, the company that produces my print books, through my affiliate shop at Bookshop.org. This has the advantage of lower shipping costs and since my books are print-on-demand, Ingrams will be making them just to fill your order. I also earn a little bit of affiiliate income by sending you there. The books are organized in collections by series.
