Day 291: Coming January 15, FINALLY
I can't wait.
I really want to put up the video that Mike at MGnexus.com made for me—it's a book trailer that I am freaking so stoked about—but I am going to hold off. I want to have a grand release in the style of a royal coronation or something, not a trickle out style one. I suppose releasing it early would provide some early energy for the project, but, I'm holding off in favor of letting any emotional boost the video gives people serve as the impetus to actually buy the book.
So, for those who are curious, since I get asked this regularly, the book will be available in paperback and e-book formats. Paperback and Kindle e-book will be available at Amazon.com, and the Nook version of the e-book will be available from the Barnes & Noble site.
I know a handful of people will recall way back when this was getting started, there were also some conversations about pricing, and how I could sell paperbacks through my website on the "e-store," and if I did that, I was going to make $3 more personally than if I sell it through Amazon.com. Well, that's still true. However, I need 1000 Amazon sales and at least 50 Amazon reviews as soon as possible, so, I'm not going to promote selling it that way. My website has it set up so people can buy direct, and anyone who stumbles across that mechanism for buying it can get it like that, but I expect most people would rather use an account they already have set up at Amazon anyway. The e-store doesn't use existing Amazon accounts as I understand it, so, as a marketer, I know that having the least number of steps between creating a desire for a product and facilitating purchase is best.
So that's the news. January 15. Keep an eye out here, on Facebook, or on my site www.daultonbooks.com.
