The Power of eBooks

So far, I've come to realize that ebooks are way more popular than print books. Case in point: I've been selling way more ebooks than I have print copies.

Even today, with the job market, real estate market and consumer market flipped upside down, people are still hesitant to spend too much for one thing. I have done so in the past myself. I buy most my books now through goodwill. But if a book really stands out, I'll buy no matter how expensive it is.

Lately, I've been catering to people who just want a taste. To try before they buy, so to speak. So, I'm happy to announce that Mr. Dead Eyes and For What It's Worth are selling steadily on the Amazon Kindle. Their price? Only 99 cents, less than a pack of bubble gum. I also have Wearing Donnie Torr, my newest book, and the longest, at 336 pages, up there as well for just 99 cents.

On Smashwords, with all my titles, I've been giving them away as free downloads (Formats include: HTML, Javascript, .mobi, EPUB, PDF, RTF, LRF, PLAIN DOC and PLAIN TEXT) and have garnered over 800 downloads to date.

Also, I've just recently decided to widen my audience and make all my titles available on the Barnes and Noble Nook for the unshakable price of 99 cents. That's right, folks. Whether you're a kindle owner or a nook owner, you can still be able to get my books. So read some, tell your friends and send a review or two my way. In the meantime, as always, I will be writing. I'm working on the second short story collection and my next novel. We'll see where this leads. Thanks for being loyal readers of my work.
