I’d planned to launch the sequel to my YA, Freaks of Greenfield High, at the end of this month. But my wonderful hubby has come through for me–again!–and done the first round of file conversions for me already. So….
Freaks in the City is live!
It’s went live on Smashwords yesterday, and overnight it went live on Amazon worldwide (US, UK, DE, FR, IT, ES). Next up, I’ll be rolling it out to All Romance eBooks. And it’ll roll out to Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Sony, Diesel eBooks etc in the next few weeks–buy links will be updated on my Books page as they come to hand.
So what’s with Smashwords, you might ask? Why upload to them first — or indeed, at all?
Well, I love Amazon for it’s ease of buying with one-click, and having the book instantly downloaded to my Kindle WiFi. But as we all know, not everyone has a Kindle (I only got mine last Christmas). And not everyone wants to open an Amazon account to buy through the ‘Zon.
Smashwords is all about giving readers choices. So once you buy a book, you can access it in multiple formats (depending on which formats the author has opted in to, of course).
Via Smashwords Freaks in The City is available in formats that can be read on pretty much every eReader device imaginable, including mobi for Kindle or the older MobiPocket Readers. So if you don’t have an Amazon account, check out the formats available from Smashwords on the Books page for Freaks in the City.
BTW, although I wrote Freaks of Greenfield High for the YA market and it’s intended as a romance, the fan-mail I’ve received tells me it appeals to young adults and adults–both men and women!–alike. So if you’re not certain whether Freaks in the City is for you, you might like to check out this excerpt.
And if you’re still on the fence about it, there’s a different excerpt in the Notes section over on my Facebook Freaks YA page.
P.S. Almost forgot: after a loooong wait, Lightning Rider is now available at iTunes US and iTunes UK — yay!
