It’s published!

Published 18/07/2014 by leannecrabtree

So I’ve just published Charlotte & Sebastian to Smashwords and enrolled it in the site-wide promotion–which means it’s FREE!–so it is now available to read in various formats and hopefully it going through the “meat-grinder” process hasn’t made it unreadable. Unfortunately, it hasn’t automatically been added to the Premium Catalogue, and been made available to other sites–B&N, iTunes–but I’ll be working to make it so when I get in from work later. Happy reading! πŸ˜€

Smashwords Promotion

Published 17/07/2014 by leannecrabtree

I’ve enrolled my books in the current Smashwords promotion running this month only. That means you can get Cat’s Wolf, Wolf Claimed and The Sapphire Diadem for free with the code SW100 at the checkout.

Cat’s Wolf:

Wolf Claimed:

The Sapphire Diadem:

You can read 15%-20% samples beforehand and there is an array of formats for you to choose from. Enjoy!

I’ll also be enrolling Charlotte & Sebastian in the promotion when I post it tomorrow or Saturday! πŸ˜€

I had this idea to do some merchandise in relation to my books: bookmarks, postcards, badges etc and have just been scouring the net trying to find some reasonably priced ones. I found this site that looked promising. Less than $10 for 50 bookmarks. Uploaded my design and everything and still cheap and then I go to checkout and suddenly it’s charging me $90 delivery. Should have known it was too good to be true πŸ˜›

So my question to my lovely readers/fellow bloggers and writers is: do you know a good value site for merch printing?

AND for those of you who don’t own a kindle, I’m publishing Charlotte& Sebastian to Smashwords on Friday or Saturday – the 18th or 19th of this month! πŸ˜€

Wolf Claimed now available on Smashwords

Published 08/01/2014 by leannecrabtree

So, I’ve just published Wolf Claimed on Smashwords since it’s 90 day enrolment ended at Amazon and I’m waiting for it to be accepted into the premium catalogue. Fingers crossed it is on it’s first attempt. So for those of you interested in reading my stories, and who don’t own a kindle, Cat’s Wolf and Wolf Claimed are both available for 99c eachΒ here:

Charlotte and Sebastian, as it is now officially being called, is nearly nine chapters in and I’m loving their story. I’ve added the book on Goodreads, so if you like the sound of it you can find/add it here:

I’m now off to write some more on it πŸ˜€

Edited for Smashwords

Published 25/07/2013 by leannecrabtree

So I’ve just spent the last hour or so editing Cat’s Wolf so that it can be uploaded to Smashwords and make it through the “meat-grinder” process and not be rejected for one reason or another.

I’ve also just checked Amazon to see when it’s KDP Select runs out and it isn’t until September 12th, another 7 weeks :/ I might upload it a little earlier than that though.

Hopefully, with it being open to a wider audience, I will sell a few more that way. I also saw that it had been a popular search for my blog readers, so I’m doing it for you too. *wink* πŸ˜›

Should I?

Published 19/07/2013 by leannecrabtree

Now that the problem with TalkTalk customers being able to get back on their WordPress blogs has been somewhat resolved (it’s still terribly slow) I’ll post this, which I wanted to post yesterday.

Do you think I should make Cat’s Wolf available at Smashwords too? That way it’ll be open to a wider audience. Not that just using Amazon isn’t okay, it’s doing really well, but not everyone has a kindle, do they?

Well I was going to include a poll (you know how fond I am of them :P) but the page wont load :/ so comments it will have to be, I’m afraid.

Thanks in advance πŸ˜€

P.S. If you’re interested, Wolf Claimed word count: 6,465
