This is just a heads up for anyone who wanted Chameleon in epub format (Kobo | iBooks | Barnes & Noble), I’m switching to Amazon only so I can test out KDP Select. They require the ebook only to be available exclusively to them. Since the vast majority of my sales come from Amazon, I’d like to give this a shot. It’ll be pulled from the other retailers as of 10/1, so if you do want the epub format, grab it now.
A little number crunching and further explanation:
It took me roughly 4-5 hours to set up everything for Kobo, iBooks, and B&N). So far these platforms have provided 8% of my ebook sales. In opposition to this, it took me about an hour to set up for Kindle, which has been 92% of my ebook sales so far. Because the book isn’t enrolled in KDP Select, it misses out on certain advantages and boosts that this provides to those books enrolled in it. Because of this, I feel I have to at least give it a go and see.
Theses are still available! KDP Select has no impact on this whatsoever. If you’d like a signed physical copy, Watermark Books has them in stock.
NOTE: I realize that not everyone uses a kindle. If you purchased Chameleon in epub, and are interested in Hybrid, I will figure out a way to get you the epub version.
