Once you have read Change State, Steve and I would take it kindly if you would review it in the venue(s) of your choice. Thank you.
In audiobook news, Steve and I have an appointment with Trade Secret’s narrator, Eileen Stevens, this Sunday evening. So, yes, there will be an audiobook, and forward motion is, er, motioning.
I’m watching for Change State to become available on Google Play Books.
I suspect you may wait a long time.
Most of my library is purchased on Google because it offers more flexibility in how I read than Amazon. I shifted away from Kindle to Google Play about 8 years ago and so far haven’tn’t have much of a compelling reason to switch back.
All but one of my purchases of your books were Google purchases. I purchased Accepting the Lance on Kindle, but was limited in where and when I could read it and really don’t want to be stuck going back to Kindle.
When you indicated that it might be a long time before I can purchase Change State on Google Play Books, I could read several answers into that statement. Were you suggesting to be patient, did your statement indicate no current plans, or was there more of a hell freezing over quality to it? (Btw, I lived in Texas for 39 years, and it did pretty much freeze over this year, so maybe I can still be hopeful)
Except for Amazon, which we deal with in-person, all of our indie titles (published by Pinbeam Books) are distributed by Draft2Digital. At one point, very briefly, D2D did distribute to Google Books/Play/Whatever. Problems Occured. I was not privy to the problems, but the best solution that Draft2Digital could come to (in my experience, D2D is an even-handed, patient, and practical distributor which has its eye on benefit to their authors) the Best Solution D2D could arrive at was to stop distributing to Google Books/Play/Whatever. I’m OK with this, as an author and a publisher. Our books are available from many stores. That’s what I meant when I said that you’d wait a long time before you see Change State on Google.
Sometimes, when my preferred store doesn’t carry a title I want, I have to go to another store. I have both Kindle and Nook apps on my tablet, and I also have Moon Reader, so I can download from places like Book View Cafe and Baen.
