I’m going to try something a bit different and go completely against everything and everybody (except, of course, Robert Chazz Chute)… I’m going to take a series off of every platform but Amazon and enroll it for the next 90 days in KDP Select and utilize free days.
Keyport Cthulhu is this series, and since the fifth and final story, “Evil,” is completed, I thought it time to mess around with the many sales platforms. You see, despite having the first four parts (“Ancient,” “Barren,” “Cabal,” and “Dagon“) on Amazon Kindle, Nook, Kobo, SmashWords and iTunes, the only place I actually made any decent sales was Amazon. In fact, everywhere else wasn’t even worth the time unless you count the freebies I gave out thanks to a SmashWords coupon.
I’m a huge fan of Robert Chazz Chute’s excellent and informative Blog and he’s gone back into KDP Select. So I Skyped with my fine Canuckian friend (it’s a pleasure to see his angelic face when we speak) and barraged him with questions, my own ideas and fears and cried like a little girl until he took pity on me and told me the Golden Truth: just do it and damn the torpedoes… I’m not sure if that’s even a real saying or a Tom Petty album, but you get the idea.
So, I’m doing it… all five stories will only be available on KDP Select, and on November 9th or thereabout the complete stories will be available in eBook and print formats for your reading perusal.
Who knows… maybe some free days of the original stories will jump start some sales and get people reading the Keyport Cthulhu series and the rest of my many releases.
Look for “Evil” to be released this coming weekend! More details to follow!
