Some Important Updates on the Status of The Inventor’s Son Series!

Some Important Updates on the Status of The Inventor’s Son Series!

Whoa, got your attention? Don’t worry, The Traitor’s Son IS scheduled for release. ARC copies will be available when I create a pre-order (I decided I’m going to do a month-long pre-order for it just like I did with The Explorer’s Son) but in the meantime, there are a few changes I am making with the rest of the lineup.

The most important and impactful will be these two changes:

  1. After October 1, The Inventor’s Son will no longer be “permafree” in any of the sales channels. The price will be set at $3.99 as it had been when it was originally released. If you have not gotten a copy of the book and it’s before October 1, check your favorite online eBook seller. Amazon will probably be the last one to revert to paid status. I have given away thousands of copies of The Inventor’s Son since I made it free last year. With the advent of services like Instafreebie, having the book free in stores makes less sense than before.
  2. After October 1, I plan to unpublish The Inventor’s Son: The Beginning. Again, as with having a free book in an online store, having a book for sale that has always been meant to be a “reader magnet” makes little sense. It will be available exclusively in boxed sets and as a reader magnet. You can find out more in upcoming posts. In the meantime, if you want to read the original version of The Inventor’s Son: The Beginning, you can check it out on Wattpad, but if you want the better version that’s available in the boxed set, for free, then sign up for the SB James Author and Artist Newsletter to have it delivered to your email inbox!

As of now, I have no plans to take the rest of the series down from any of theĀ online sellers like Kobo and iBooks, so no need to worry about that. In fact, I most likely will not make this series exclusive to Amazon. I do plan on participating in future Instafreebie promotions, so you can be on the lookout for that. I find that these promotions, run alongside other authors in my genres, are the most satisfying and successful.

There will be more changes coming so stay tuned!

The Last of the Instafreebie Promos (for now!)

Ending Very Soon!

Just a really quick heads up; this one is almost over! If you like YA books, and you like them FREE, then you’ll like this selection. But it’s only through May 31, 2017, so head on over there while they’re still available!

I’m making a few changes on the site, now that there are more people visiting, so I want it to be optimized. I want to caution thatĀ some of my links from external sources (like old social media posts) may be goofed up, but I’m working on getting that fixed and I will be posting new links in my social media to my most important posts. I believe the link problem only is going to affect blog posts, but I will make sure of that. I will also be trying out some redirects if I can’t weed out all the problems. This seems to be my month for technical difficulties, LOL!

I will be updating my progress bar for The Traitor’s Son’s progress. I’m also working on something that I should have had for quite a while: my ARC reader list. When I have all the details ironed out, I will be offering the option to people on my mailing list. What do you mean, you’re not on my mailing list? Remedy this unfortunate situation at once, and click the link for “A Free Book” in the menu!

Another Instafreebie Giveaway Promotion (this one’s pretty big)!

Another Instafreebie Giveaway Promotion (this one’s pretty big)!

 

 

This may be one of the final Instafreebie promotions I participate in for a while.

For a limited time, you can grab a FREE copy of The Inventor’s Son, along with a LOAD of other free books, by entering the SFF Book Bonanza Portal!

You’re probably wondering why I mentioned that this might be my last Instafreebie Giveaway for a while. This is because I am considering putting The Inventor’s Son Series into Kindle Unlimited. This is a program that Amazon has for people to subscribe and read all they want from a selection of Kindle books for one set monthly price. It seems like a great way to get more people to read my books, because Amazon would have them available to these readers.

If I enroll the books, however, I will need to make them exclusively available at Amazon, and I would not be able to put a full book into Instafreebie Giveaway Promotions like this one if enrolled. I cannot have the books anywhere else, either, aside from the paperback book still being available at Barnes & Noble. The Kindle versions would still be available for purchase as well as for borrowing, but no other stores can have an eBook version available.

I will have the eBooks still widely available through May 2017, and I may only have them in Kindle Unlimited for the summer.

What do you think of Kindle Unlimited? Do you think you’d like to see my books available to borrow from the program?
