Until recently, I didn’t know what Payhip was. An author friend introduced me to it. It’s a place where I can create my own store to sell my books directly to people. I’m offering mobi and epub files for all of my romances over there.
The downside is that I have no control over the order the books are listed on the storefront. They aren’t given in order according to series. I have 76 books up there, so it may take some searching to find a particular book. I did try to make things easier by breaking the books up into “Regency Romances”, “Historical Western Romances”, and “Contemporary Romances” categories. But as of right now, that is the best I can do.
Overall, I’m impressed with Payhip because of the features they offer.
Please Note: these are special deals I’m offering ONLY on Payhip:
1. I can give discounts if you mention the book on social media. If you share a paid book on a place like Facebook, you can save 25% off of it. So let’s say, you share the link for Kidnapping the Viscount. After you do that, you’ll get an option to save 25% off of it. I have set this feature up for all of my books.
2. I can offer cross promotions on my books. To test this feature out, I have one series that I’m offering this special on at the moment.
I’ll run this special for a month. Today’s date is June 12, 2019. This deal will run until July 12, 2019.
If you purchase Wagon Trail Bride (Book 1) at the regular price ($2.99), you can save 50% off of The Marriage Agreement, 50% off Groom For Hire, and 50% off Forced Into Marriage. But this sale is only good until July 12, 2019. So instead of paying $11.96, you only pay $7.46 (which is a savings of $4.50 for the entire series).
Here’s the link to Wagon Trail Bride. Once you put the item in the cart, you’ll get the option to take advantage of the sale on the other books in the series. Look at the bottom right corner of the screen to click see the sales price on the other three books in the series. You’ll need to add each book individually to the cart, but the discount will automatically apply to each book if you use those links at the bottom right corner of the screen.
If there is a special you’d like to see on another series, let me know, and I’ll run it from July to August.
3. I can offer a coupon on a new release. I will try this out when The Wedding Pact is released on July 14.
