Announcement: Stitch is $0.99 & Coming Back to Nook! Also, Giveaway WINNERS!

Winners of the Stitch Free Days GiveawaySo the Stitch free days are officially over and what a whirlwind it was!  Almost 25,000 copies were downloaded across the globe, and it reached as high as #13 on Amazon’s Top 100 Free Books (and stayed at #1 in its sub-categories the entire promotion).  I honestly could not have imagined better results than this.  THANK YOU so, so much to everyone that helped spread the word – it just goes to show you much how loyal readers and  fans can impact a book’s success.  You guys really are the best.

As promised, to thank you properly (or at least a few of you!), I’ve drawn the winners of the Stitch free days giveaway – see screenshot at right.  If you’re one of these people, you should have received an email from me this morning with details about how to claim your prize.  Congrats!!

I also have a few other announcements that I’m very excited about.  As of this very moment, Stitch is now only $0.99 on Kindle!  So if you know anyone who missed the free days, please let them know that they can still grab it for *just* about free.  Here’s the link.

AND now that my KDP Select enrollment is ending, that means I’m no longer under an exclusivity agreement with Amazon, so Stitch is coming back to Nook!  (And iTunes, Kobo, Smashwords, and pretty much everywhere else e-books are sold, all at the same low price of $0.99.)  Once I give the order to Smashwords to distribute the book to all these retailers it usually takes 2-3 weeks for it to propagate through the system and become available for purchase, but I’m expecting that Nook/etc. users should have it at their disposal by the end of the month, early July at the latest.  (And yes, Shudder will be available too!)

Okay, and now I’m heads down for the next few days prepping for the Shudder Blog Tour launch THIS SATURDAY, June 15th!!!  I’ll be in touch with more updates this weekend once the festivities begin.  :-)  (And if you’re itching to begin reading Shudder NOW, you can get started with the Sample Chapters.  Only 3 more days to go!!)

Announcement: Stitch available to borrow FREE from Kindle Owners’ Lending Library

I’m very excited to announce that Stitch is now available in the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library!

What does this mean?  In short, if you’re an Amazon Prime member (and come on, who doesn’t want free 2-day shipping on everything?), you can borrow Stitch for FREE!

More info about the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library available on Amazon.com here.  Happy reading!

 

Announcement: Last chance to get Stitch on Nook & iTunes!

Last Chance to Grab Stitch on Nook, iTunes, & Smashwords!Hey Stitch fans!  If you’ve been meaning to grab a copy on your Nook, iPad, or other non-Kindle e-reader device, now is the time!

In the coming weeks, Stitch will become exclusive to Amazon as part of the KDP Select Program (making it available to borrow – for free! – in the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library), which means that it will no longer be available through other channels, including Barnes & Noble Nook, iTunes, Smashwords, and other e-book retailers.

I know this is a bummer, but it’s not forever – per Amazon’s rules, it will only be for as long as Stitch is part of KDP Select (though that requires a minimum of 3 months).  During that time, you’ll still be able to buy copies on Kindle or in paperback format through Amazon, but not through the other e-book channels that Stitch is currently available on.  So the short story is, if you were planning to recommend Stitch or gift a copy to friends/family who use Nook, iPad/iPhone, or other e-book readers/retailers (e.g., Smashwords), please get your copy now!  By mid-December, Stitch will be available exclusively at Amazon.

Thanks so much for all your support and I apologize in advance for any inconvenience!  More details about how to get Stitch through the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library coming soon!!
