Discounted books, maybe

This is the thing: I’m thinking of offering you 25% off my eBooks.

Here’s the details: first, it takes a long time to get books ready for marketing on platforms like Amazon Kindle but I am sitting on novels that won’t see the light of day for at least another year – if not more.

Second, these books are sitting around metaphorically gathering dust (they actually reside on a cloud drive with multiple backups spread across the globe) and because almost all my sales have come from Amazon as opposed to any other eBook platform, I sell exclusively on Amazon when I publish (it’s a contract situation).

BUT here’s the thing I mentioned at the start: until I commit to Amazon, I can sell anything to anyone on any platform – and at any price.

THE IDEA: I am seriously considering selling Kindle compatible versions of my yet-to-be published novels on my website at a 25% discount to the price I will charge when I publish on Amazon. This offer would be available to my lovely newsletter subscribers and, to be honest, the few souls who bump into the site without me directing them there directly.

Right now, I have The Case and The Death of Penny Pitstop waiting to be read and in a couple of months I can offer The Bowery Slugger. I would charge £3.75 instead of £4.99 and if you were in the US I don’t mind charging $3.75 compared to $4.99 if that helps. I could also sell paperback versions of them if I thought there was sufficient demand – the price would be £14.99 and I’d be able to offer something like a 25% discount on that too (subject to me finding out actual print costs etc).

If you are interested and a newsletter reader, reply to the e-newsletter with a YES! If you are interested and not a newsletter subscriber then go to the website and say something relevant in the comments section to this post.

If you are not interested then do nothing and if you are in the majority, I’ll do nothing too.

Hopefully you’ll be able to fill your boots – in the near future.
