The April Update

The Wedding Collection of three contemporary romancesby Ella ArdentThere isn’t much news to report this month, although I’m writing again and things are quietly happening here.

The print editions of Dangerous, His Lost Princess, and The Wedding have perked out to all of the portals (even Indigo!) so I’ve updated the links here on the site. I also tweaked some of the details, so you should see slightly better pricing on print editions at your portal of choice.

Happy spring and I’ll talk to you next month!

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 Editions

I’ve made print editions available again through Ingrams. This means that in addition to the links provided here on the website, you can order them at ANY bookstore.

The print editions of the three Plume Collections and Dangerous are published directly to Amazon in editions only for Amazon. This makes the price there slightly better. The Amazon edition of The Wedding Collection is processing and should be live soon, maybe even later today.

A couple of things…

The Phoenix collections are available only in print editions. I might make digital bundles again, but will do new covers if I decide to do that. Right now, the print editions have the original covers.

Tales from the Phoenix: The Second Collection by Ella ArdentMy edition of Tales from the Phoenix: the Second Collection isn’t showing up on Amazon. The copies listed for sale are all third-party copies: you can tell because the product page looks like this:

It says the book will ship from someone other than Amazon. Third party sellers add a mark-up somewhere – either their prices are higher, or they have higher shipping charges. Shipping may also be delayed since Amazon isn’t doing the fulfillment. The copy from Ingrams, if and when it shows up on Amazon, will be eligible for free shipping, and will be priced at $14.99 US.

The Wedding Collection of three contemporary romancesby Ella ArdentThe print editions of The Wedding Collection and Dangerous seem to be making slow progress to the portals. There also are copies available of The Plume Collections with the old covers, especially at Indigo , and it’s possible they still have some stock to sell. Be sure if/when you order that you’re getting the edition you want.

I hadn’t formatted and uploaded a print edition of His Lost Princess to Ingrams yet so have done that. It’s working its way out the distribution channels now.

His Lost Princess, #2 of the Euphoria series of fairy tale romances by Ella ArdentFinally, the ebook for His Lost Princess is available in wide distribution again.

Available at:
Books2Read Universal Link (for other Amazon stores and international stores)

GooglePlay and The Wedding

The Best Man, first in The Wedding series of contemporary romances by Ella ArdentMy books are now available at GooglePlay again. You can check the links on individual book pages here, or check out this page on GP which shows all my books that are live there.

(Her Dark Prince isn’t there yet, just FYI. I’ll upload it and His Lost Princess everywhere after HLP comes out of Kindle Unlimited later this week.)

And The Wedding Series is live everywhere again. I was able to use the original distribution path for this series, which means it’s live at Apple with all the reviews. Yay!

The Best Man should be a 99cent read – I see that for me, though, Apple has rounded up to $1.99 CA and GP has converted 99 cents US to $1.30 CA. :-/ There’s not much I can do about prices delivered from an aggregator, unfortunately. It’s a 99cent read at the other portals.

Submission, book one of the Plume Series by Ella ArdentFinally, I decided to republish Submission so I could make it a free read for new readers to discover The Plume Series. It has a new cover and the links are percolating. It’s the only one of the nine original novellas that’s available on its own – because it makes more sense to buy the collections once you start reading the series.

Next up, I need to create portal-specific book interiors for Kobo and GooglePlay, and republish Euphoria by the end of the week. I realized that the newsletter link in Dangerous (and the three episodes) is the old defunct link, so I’ll need to reformat and re-upload those books, too. I’m making progress, though!
