The March Update

What’s new this month?

Submission, book one of the Plume Series by Ella ArdentWell, first off, I caved. LOL! I now have a Facebook page, and you can like it right here.

Secondly, I’ve been republishing ebooks.

The Plume Series is available at all retailers again.

I also created a new edition of Submission and distributed it everywhere. It’s a free read at Apple, Nook and Smashwords, so you can try out the Plume Series if you haven’t already. (Amazon may match the free price. It’s 99 cents there.) It’s the only one of the nine original novellas that’s available on its own, so you can continue the series with one of the Plume Collections.

The Best Man, first in The Wedding series of contemporary romances by Ella ArdentThe Wedding Series is available at all retailers again. The Best Man is 99-cents at all retailers as a series starter – it’s free at Apple, Nook and Smashwords. Again, Amazon may match the free price. It’s 99 cents there.

The two books in the Tales from Euphoria series are available at all retailers again.

Third, I’ve been working on print editions. The three Plume Collections (not the complete series) are published directly to Amazon, as is The Wedding Collection and Dangerous. This gives the paperbacks a slightly better price there.

I’ve also republished all of the trade paperbacks through Ingrams. The cool thing  is that Ingrams’ editions are available everywhere—they’ll supply Her Dark Prince and His Lost Princess to Amazon, as well as to other Amazon companies like The Book Depository. Your local bookstore can even order my books for you. And libraries can order them, too.

Fourth – yikes, what a busy month this has been! – there’s a new ebook portal open called Eden Books. It looks as if they’ll be specializing in steamy romance, but it’s early days yet. I’ve uploaded The Plume and The Wedding there. You can find my books on their site, right here.

And now, it’s time to get back to writing! I hope you’ve had a productive month, too.

Print Distribution

The Plume: The Complete Series by Ella ArdentI mentioned last week that the bigger books – the collections of novellas – are available in wider distribution than the cute little books. Previously, they were all available from Amazon with some distribution to other portals. It turns out that many stores and libraries prefer to order print books from Ingrams.

So, now those larger print editions are available through Ingrams, which means that your local bookstore or library can order them. This has been a lot more time consuming than expected, but now it’s done.

You can now ask for any of the Plume Collections, The Phoenix Collection or the Wedding Anthology at your local bookstore or library.

These print editions also have new ISBN#’s:
The Plume: The Complete Series ISBN 9780995023444
The Plume: The First Anthology ISBN 9780995023413
The Plume: The Second Anthology ISBN 9780995023420
The Plume: The Third Anthology ISBN 9780995023437
The Wedding Anthology ISBN 9780995023406
Tales from the Phoenix: The First Collection ISBN 9780995023451

From this point onward, all big books will go into wider distribution, through both Ingrams and Amazon.

 

New Print Editions

The Plume: The Complete Series by Ella ArdentOne of the things that’s been happening behind the scenes this month is that I’ve been publishing the print editions of my books through Ingrams. They’re still available from Createspace and Amazon, but I’m told that other booksellers and libraries prefer to order from Ingrams.

This should mean that you can get the books more easily from other booksellers.

For example, my books are now being listed for sale on the Chapters Indigo website, which is the big bookseller in Canada. The links are still populating, so the cover image isn’t there yet (these things take time) but here are Indigo links for

The Plume: The First Anthology

The Plume: The Second Anthology

The Plume: The Complete Collection

The Wedding Anthology

Tales from the Phoenix: The First Collection and The Plume: The Third Anthology should appear on the site soon.

This also means that you can ask for the print edition to be ordered by your local library or your local bookseller. 🙂

In Transition at B&N

If you shop at Barnes and Noble, you might notice my books disappearing this week. They’ll reappear, probably by the end of the week. The only ones that will stay put are the installments of Dangerous that are up for pre-order (A and N are there), and Submission, which already is shipping by this new route.

What’s going on is that I’m changing out the distribution from one method to another. I’m hoping that this is fairly painless, but we’ll see. I’m also hoping that this will fix the glitch that has kept my books from appearing in search results on the Nook UK store. I’ll have to update the buy links here on the site once everything is done.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.
