Some exciting news to report on here at the ole blog. Waiting For Spring has been picked up by AmazonEncore, the publishing arm of Amazon.com. A little background from their website:
Even great books can be overlooked. And authors with great potential often struggle to connect with the larger audience they deserve to reach. We’re fortunate at Amazon.com to have customers who know a good book when they read one, so we’ve introduced AmazonEncore to help connect authors and their books with more readers.
AmazonEncore is a new program whereby Amazon will use information such as customer reviews on Amazon.com to identify exceptional, overlooked books and authors with more potential than their sales may indicate. Amazon will then partner with the authors to re-introduce their books to readers through marketing support and distribution into multiple channels and formats, such as the Amazon.com Books Store, Amazon Kindle Store, Audible.com, and national and independent bookstores via third-party wholesalers.
Yes…this is a huge deal. I can’t accurately express how thrilled I am to be working with the amazing people at Encore. Already, copy-edits are finished and the new cover is ready (which, for the record, I LOVE). Here it be:
The Encore version is available for pre-order now, if you’re so inclined.
I’ll post more information in the days, weeks, and months ahead. In the meantime I want to tell each of you how very much I appreciate everything you’ve done for me over the past three years. This would not have been possible without your support and encouragement.
