Blake and Jordan have a new ebook horror-thriller out called EERIE, which is currently free on Kindle.
Download it. It's a great book.
EERIE didn't debut on Kindle. In fact, it has been available for several weeks.
Here are the Crouchs to explain why.
A lot of people also ask me if it is a good idea to sign with one of Amazon's publishing arms. Blake and I hit the #1 Bestseller spot because of the push Amazon gave Stirred, something I haven't been able to do on my own. But was it worth the sales I lost on other platforms?
I don't believe so.
If Amazon wants me back in KDP Select, they'll have to offer more. And if Amazon Publishing wants another book from me, they'll have to offer more. Exclusivity, and signing away rights, isn't how I see the future. Authors should be able to keep their rights, and exploit them in as many ways as possible.
But the cloud is still a concept that hasn't entirely caught on. People do like to own media.More people will own us than read us. It'll always be that way. There's no guarantee a book owned will be read, even if that book was bought. Adding more choice to the equation doesn't matter. We've always had a lot of choice.
