Please note: I will only email the people who subscribed to be notified when a new release is out after the new book is live on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, AND Smashwords. It has to be on those three sites before I email you (if you signed up to be on the list). I don’t like it when authors email over and over with a different link to each site. So I’m keeping it to one email.
That all being said, if you notice a new release is somewhere else and wonder why I haven’t emailed you (if you’re on my list), that is why.
And this brings me to today’s post.
I checked Barnes and Noble this morning to see if A Most Unsuitable Earl is up there yet. (It’s not.) In fact, I noticed a couple of things are wrong on Barnes and Noble while I was there. Suddenly a Bride and Loving Eliza are no longer free there, but they should be. I have put them down as free over at Smashwords, and they are free everywhere else that I checked (Amazon, Kobo, Sony, Apple, Diesel).
I also noticed that The Earl’s Inconvenient Wife isn’t even at Barnes and Noble, and it was there two days ago when I checked.
So I have two books at the wrong price and one no longer there and one that has yet to show up.
I think this is a glitch in Barnes and Noble’s system because my books aren’t affected anywhere else, and I read a thread over at the Kindleboards where some other authors are having some issues over there as well.
All I can do on my end is email Smashwords (since those books are distributed through Smashwords) to alert them to the problem. Since this is happening to other authors as well, I expect this problem will take time to get resolved.
This is the life of a self-published author. 😀 Little things pop up that need your attention, and you can’t guarantee that your book is going to up on a certain site at a certain time because glitches do happen. But even with the hassles that pop up, I love publishing my own books because I love having full control over the story. I love making my own covers, too. I even enjoy the business side to the whole thing. 😀
Hopefully, everything with Barnes and Noble will be resolved soon.
When A Most Unsuitable Earl is live on Barnes and Noble, I’ll send out an email to everyone on my email list to let them know the links where they can buy it.
