Okay, I finally did it. I signed The Watchmage of Old New York up for Kindle Select. It’s only a 3 month contract, but I had to pull the book off of every other site.
I did this because almost all of my sales come from Amazon anyway. I’ve never bought an ebook elsewhere. I doubt that most people have. I’m doubling down on their hold on the industry.
The bright side is that I can now have special promotions, even Free giveaways. I also believe that Amazon pushes its KS books harder than other ones. We’ll see. The sequel to “Watchmage” is coming out this spring. If this works out, I’ll put that on there too.
I’ll keep you posted on any sales improvements. Honestly, I’m not expecting much, but you never know. Because it’s in a niche between fantasy and history, it doesn’t attract much attention. Few people are interested in pre-Civil War New York City, and those that are don’t care for wizards and faeries.
