I have some Nick & Bee news for you ladies. Unyielding Love – Nick & Bee’s Story is available for pre-order NOW on iBooks. I know in the past, it was available for Nook as well, but I’ve changed my self-publishing methods somewhat, so it’s only available through iBooks. Here’s what’s going on.
Unyielding Love – Nick & Bee’s Story is on sale now on iBooks and will release on April 4, 2014. I will do my best to get it released on Amazon and Nook around the same time, but cannot guarantee what those booksellers will do. Originally, I’ve published through an aggregate seller (a middle-man of sorts) and they would publish on iBooks, Nook, and Kobo for me. While this was great, it gave me very little control over my own book.
For instance, I wouldn’t know how many books I’d sold till a month later. If there were any unfair reviews (like reviewing without having read the book), I couldn’t complain to anyone as I technically wasn’t doing business with the bookseller. If there’s an issue with formatting that’s an error on iBooks or Nook’s side, I needed to go through the aggregate seller, who then went to the individual company to get it fixed. After having self-published eight books, I decided, enough was enough. I was done feeling frustrated with the little control I had. And thus, I will now be publishing directly with each company. It’s a lot more work, but in the end, I think it will be worth my time. As of now, iBooks is the only company that offers pre-orders when publishing with them directly. So, for those of you who desire to purchase UL Vol. 1, you can pre-order and be guaranteed the 4/4/2014 delivery date.
As I’ve said in the past, UL Vol. 1 will be the same book except for the two prologue blogs. For those of you who purchase the book, you’ll get the entire April blogs on 4/4/2014. For those of you who choose to wait, you will have to wait a few weeks while I am out of the country in April. Our family will be taking a vacation during April and Nick and Bee will go on hiatus until I return. Of course when I get back, I will get you caught up, but I don’t wish to have to worry these blogs when I’m away.
In short, UL Vol. 1 publishes April 4th, the blogs will be on hold for a few weeks in April, I will be re-publish once I return. If you can wait, you’ve saved yourself $2.99, if you can’t wait to see what’s happened with Nick & Bee, download the book. I hope I’ve covered everything. As always, feel free to ask questions.
