Okay, so after doing a bit of homework, I have learned much–and probably still not enough lol!
Update #1: No pre-orders.
I researched pre-orders on print books. Here is my reaction to what I found: What…the…what??? 0_o
It was so easy to set up pre-order for the e-book version of ADORKABLE. I thought it would be just as straightforward with print books, but alas…this is not the case. To see what I mean, here is a link to the process. And another from the original thread on this topic.
After reading (and re-reading) these and other articles, I really think I could do it. No, I know I could do it. I’m good at following directions–especially when it’s for something important.
But that’s the thing: ADORKABLE is my book baby. It’s my debut. It’s Sally and Becks and Hooker and Ash and…it’s a piece of me. If there was even one change in the process, something might go wrong, and…nope. Not taking that chance.
So yeah, no pre-orders. The book will be out really soon anyway–which brings me to my next update.
Update #2: The Official Release Date for the print edition of ADORKABLE will be September 20, 2016!!!
That’s less than 2 weeks away, you guys. I’m sooooo excited!!! I have no idea how many people will want the print edition. I’ve had several people tell me they’d like a print version, and I hope there will be new readers. Maybe they only read print books and will find ADORKABLE this way. I hope old readers who loved the e-book will want to add the paperback to their shelves. Again, I’m just so freakin’ excited about it!
So excited, in fact, that I have a third update.
Update #3: On Friday, there will be a Kindle Countdown Deal! ADORKABLE, the original ebook version, will be available for just $0.99 for a limited time to celebrate the upcoming release of the print book. I’ll do another post Friday, but yeah. Deals are awesome, and I hope a lot of readers will benefit from this one!
And those are the ADORKABLE updates. The “I <3 ADORKABLE” giveaway is still open if you want to enter. I hope you are all having a great week!
P.S. ADORKABLE was #1 in Germany, Canada and France this week in its categories! Woohoo!
