So here's a quick update on Limerence and then some general ramblings…
So all the reviewers have had their copies of Limerence sent to them now, Eeeeek. I’ve been looking at marketing with bookmarks and magnets and lots of other bits and bobs. I’ve added Limerence to the Goodreads site, and it has already been reviewed a couple of times and marked ‘to read.’ If you don’t know what Goodreads is, it’s a fantastic site for book lovers. You add the books that you have read and/or want to read to your virtual bookshelf and through following other peoples reviews on books, you find new books that you might enjoy. It’s actually a pretty huge deal, so if you don’t have Limerencec on your shelf- go do it! If you’re a writer, which I know some of my lovely friends are, you need to go set up your author page and do the same, also adding yours to the site.
Well, Limerence is pretty much formatted for kindle now, I just need to push the ‘publish’ button. Yay!
I’m still working on the Createspace edition though, and it’s proving to be more complicated. Boooooooo.
For those that don’t know what the heck I’m talking about, Amazon Kindle is the eBook edition, and Createspace is the ‘Print on Demand’ paperback- or POD for short.
I’ve actually been inundated with requests for the paperback, so clearly it’s a must, but the formatting is a lot trickier.
I did a poll on my Facebook page a while back on what people prefer, paperback to eBooks, and whilst I much prefer an actual book to an eBook I thought that the kindle version would be way more popular.
How wrong was I?
The popularity of paperbacks clearly isn’t diminishing in 2013, I hope that it is set to continue this way, but with eBooks being as cheap as they are and being able to be downloaded in a few seconds I can understand their allure.
I have this terrible habit of buying an eBook on my iPhone and then if I really like it, I’ll buy the paperback too! =P
The way I see it, is my paperbacks are my trophies. They’re my awards for doing well, and finding time in my busy day to pick up a book and read it. So when I see my bookshelf’s – and yes, I mean bookshelf’s plural- brimming with books, I can’t help but smile. That and I just love the smell and feel of a real book!
So, I ask again.
