A Really Nice Review

Hi all!

Got a great boost today when I saw that the union representing all the police in Queensland reviewed Police Don't Move! in their monthly magazine. Even better was the fact that they seemed to have liked it a lot. All 9000 or so sworn officers in the state, + some civilian staff and retired officers get this journal, either mailed to them, or downloadable from the union's website.

Here's a link to it if you want: http://www.qpu.asn.au/journal/current

I had a bit of a search on Kindle today and was surprised at how many serving and retired police around the world are writing books. Some are about a single significant case, while other cops do as I did and write about the more memorable/interesting/funny jobs they remember from their time on the road.

I've put together some links to these books, as I like to feel I am supporting fellow cops who take the opportunity to write ... and as well as that, it's perhaps good Karma!

So here ya go:

True-Police-Stories-Orleans-ebook

True-Stories-Policemans-Notebook-ebook

Police-Stories-Strange-Unexplained-ebook

Police-Crime-999-Officer-ebook   ... and I just could NOT finish without giving you yet 

another link to my book:


Police-Dont-Move


Have fun reading your way through these, and see you all again soon.

Apples iBooks Now Has my Title

Apple Releases Police Don't Move!

So another biggy today. Apple iBooks picked up the book and it's nice to see that they have it at the lower price of $9.99.

Here's a link to it on iTunes 

Or of course for you iPhone and iPad users, just search for - Police Don't Move! - on your device.

Geopricing

It is really interesting for me as a first time book writer to see how the retailers release books at different prices depending on where the customer is searching from. For example Kindle has had the book @ $2.99, $11.99 and $9.99 in the few weeks they have hosted it! When you look at their outside of the US sites, and do a currency conversion, you can see that it again differs in price. 

You would think that unlike a print and ink book, an ebook could so easily be sold at a set price - no matter where you were shopping from? 

For you other authors out there; do you see the same 'geopricing' policy used with your work(s)?

Kobo Releases the Book

Well another milestone day with Kobo releasing the book. You can find it HERE 



...and click the book picture to order it on Kindle



New Release on Kobo


I still feels a touch weird to see my work out there and available on the internet! The sales on Kindle in the few days since release have been very encouraging, and the reviews have been as well. 

Interestingly Kobo have elected to price the book at $7.99 which is less than on Amazon's Kindle. I wonder if the bots at Kindle will see this and reduce their price as well? 

If any seasoned authors have had experiences with ebooks, retailers and pricing - please chip in and let me know all about it.

Amazon changed the Link to my Book!

I'm awful glad that I'm the patient type! Soo, my ebook: POLICE DON'T MOVE! was released on Amazon a couple of days ago. I busily took the URL and spread it out there for all the right marketing reasons. Then 2 days later, what does Amazon do? They change the URL for the book, leaving all the interested parties with a 'not found' screen. AARRGGHH!

Obviously I have now retraced my steps and am getting the new link spread all about, but what a nuisance.

And so with great fanfare (again), here is the link to buy it

Has this happened to any other authors out there?

Ebook Published on Kindle

A big day today with my very first ebook appearing live on Kindle! A big surprise is that Kindle had elected to price it at $2.99. They are actually taking a fair hit here, as I supply it to them at a higher price. I have heard that they do this from time to time to ensure that they have the price edge on their competitors.

Up to them I guess - they'll be paying me the agreed price whatever.

And ... without any further ado, here is the link to the book on Kindle; 




My publisher, Bookbaby tells me that the book will be available on the other chosen readers;

Apple ibooks, Kobo, and a few others.

If you have friends that you feel might enjoy a fairly light true crime book, feel free to pass the link on!

... and of course, if you read and enjoy the book, please know that you're welcome to post a comment here, or a review on Kindle.
