Widening Distribution

I recently uploaded all my current titles to Publish Drive, a new e-book publisher and distributor. This means that all the books are now available through a much wider range of outlets than just Amazon and Kindle. All things being equal, they should now be popping up on Barnes and Noble, through Google Play and Google Plus, with iBooks and a range of others. All the titles are available in paperback and e-book formats, with paper versions being printed by Lightning Source and distribution through Ingram.

Will this see an increase in sales -- and more importantly -- readership? I certainly hope so, especially as Harry Heron: Savage Fugitive is inching ever closer to publication in late June/early July. 

And then there's this one, a book I got particular pleasure from writing and researching.

Publish Drive is a young company, started in Hungary within the EU initially, but now based in the US. As I wrote at the start, I have joined them to see how I can reach a wider market and readership. If all is as promoted, I hope for a good result. I can certainly commend their services to any authors reading this as they are helpful, prompt to respond to any query, and offer a good service. They have pages on FaceBook and other social media sites which their authors are encouraged to join and use.
