I will update my blog posts today with this info. It was worth the try, really.

I have a boxed set that contains three of my novels that I would be more than willing to put in KU exclusively but I really didn’t think you could do that.And yet, both you and Molly are saying that Amazon views this as a unqiue product. Hmmm… I have a separate ISBN/ ASIN for this book/trilogy.

Additionally, I divided one of my novels into 3 parts (3 separate books at about 40K words a piece)because it is so flipping long. The novel (This Much Is True) is wide everywhere but I would be willing to be exclusive with the three separate novellas as it were to Amazon. Do you think that would be a violation of Amazon’s TOS? The “parted” novellas would be exclusive to Amazon and unique in that they are sold as Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 of the storyline. What do you think? Separate ISBNs and ASINs for all three by the way.

While I was at Writer’s Police Academy last week, I had the opportunity to meet and speak with Lee Goldberg, NY Times Bestselling author, and he also left Select and went wide for some of the same reasons. Going wide appears to be the wave of the future.

We have been working with Overdrive and Google for years, so we would be delighted to help with these or any other channels on your list.

Very best wishes,

That’s a good thing!

Great article as always. I went to D2D right away since I needed to have my first book in my series to be free and price matched by Amazon – trying to market my books using the drug dealer trick of offering the first for free. Guess you cannot have it all. Its either a free book but no KU (but you get to go wide) or KU but no free book and you have to stay with Amazon only.

Have an amazing day and as always, I look forward to your next articles.
