The exclusive term on Kindle Select for Mesmer, Book 1: Sanctuary (A Three Towers Fantasy) is finally coming to an end – scary how quickly 3 months zipped by like that.
Enrolling the book in Kindle Select was an interesting experience. It gave me an opportunity to organise free promotions on Amazon that would have been tricky to do otherwise. The trade off to get 5 free days on Select however was to keep my book exclusive to Kindle for 90 days. Exclusivity has never been my cup of tea … which was why I’d always intended to launch the book under Select and then branch out to multiple retailers; I see no reason to change my plans:)
My three months on Select ends on July 25, so I’ll be putting Sanctuary (Mesmer, #1) out on multiple online retailers (ie Smashwords, Kobo, B&N, Apple etc) by the end of the month/August. If you’re someone like me who enjoys access to a variety of online retailers, do keep a look out for the book’s second launch:) Better yet, simply sign up for free email updates from this website, and you’ll know as soon as it’s out:)
On that note, a heads up that I’m setting the ebook free for a final 3 days on Kindle this weekend, from Friday 20 July to Sunday 22 July. Have fun, and have a great weekend reading some good books!:)
Just a heads up that a pretty cool indie giveaway hop is going on right now at I Am A Reader, Not A Writer; and as part of the giveaway, five copies of my lovely ebook Of Magic and Mayhem (*shameless plug*) are up for grabs at the Disincentive Reviews blog! Do pop by and have a look at what’s on offer – there’re some gorgeous reads out there I hadn’t come across before. Have fun, everyone:)
Don’t you just love freebies?:) For some fantasy, adventure and romance, pick up Sanctuary (Mesmer, #1) this Saturday May 26th, free on Kindle for a day! Have fun:)
