Bah bah bah bah bah BAAAAAAAH!
A new and illustrated paperback edition is now available for my best-selling book, ANGELBOUND! Check it out on Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
Here’s some quick Q&A about this release… be sure to scroll down for sample pics!!!
Why are you doing this?
I used to have all my print titles created and distributed by Amazon/KDP. Going forward, I’ll still use KDP for Amazon.com… but I’m testing out another service, Ingram Spark, for what’s called expanded distribution to libraries, small bookstores and so on (these aren’t easily covered by KDP). Ingram Spark requires a new a universal product code called an ISBN. I didn’t want two print ISBNs out there that sell the exact same thing, so I’m creating illustrated editions, starting with ANGELBOUND.
What’s included in this edition?
In this enhanced paperback, there are eight full-page images. I’ve included high-definition pics of Myla, Lincoln, Walker, Xavier, the Earl of Acca, the Ryder mansion, and two pics of Myla and Lincoln. Woot!
How much does it cost?
I’ve asked for the enhanced edition to be priced the same as its non-illustrated counterpart: $15.95. Retailers always have the right to do funky stuff with pricing, though. The title is certainly listed at $15.95 on Barnes & Noble today.
I don’t see this book listed on my favorite retailer? What’s up?
This is a new release, so it may take a while to get into retailer search engines and link into other versions of this book. If you don’t see the book listed on your favorite retailer, please search by what’s called the ISBN (basically it’s a universal product code) which in this case is 9781946677761.
Why stop using Amazon for all your print?
Amazon isn’t compatible with small bookstores and libraries. I want to ensure my books are available as widely as possible, so I’m testing out Ingram Spark.
Will you be doing the rest of your books this way?
Right now, I’m working on illustrated editions of all the Angelbound Origins books. I’ll be sure to announce them as they go live! Depending on how Angelbound Origins goes, I may expand out to my entire catalog. Ingram Spark is a new vendor for me, so it will depend on how that relationship works over time.
I have a question you didn’t cover above. Grr!
