If you’ve paid any attention to the re-release of Stick Shift this week, you may have noticed it’s not on Barnes and Noble or All Romance eBooks or Smashwords. There’s a reason for that and the title of this post makes that clear.
I’ve enrolled Stick Shift in Amazon Kindle Select. It’s exclusive to Amazon for 3 months. It’s a test, you see. For me. To try something new. To see how things work with Kindle Select. To utilize some of the deals and special things they have in place for authors who give them exclusivity. To see if it would be beneficial for another book down the line. To see how Kindle Unlimited affects things.
I’m not as savvy as some of the more successful self-publishing authors. I don’t know all the algorithms. I don’t know all the tips and tricks. I don’t know all the short cuts or how to play the system to make it work better for me and my books. I don’t have Amazon reps. I can only go off what I see, hear, observe, and by the answers to the questions I ask when I think someone might be willing to share information.
And it’s possible that I’m doing everything wrong, but that’s how we learn most of the time, or at least, that how’s I learn most of the time.
So, over the next couple of months, I’ll be trying these different things out while working on finishing up the second Bad Boys of Racing book and The Sticky Cowgirl.
Y’all have a great weekend. I’ll be writing and watching football.
Oh and if you have read Stick Shift and liked it, please consider leaving a review.
