Preordering books, or buying them on release day, doesn't mean more money for the author. But it sends an important message to people who can make a difference to the author's career. With an eBook and online retailers, preorders can improve the ranking of the book and lead to better visibility on their website. Preorders can impress the publishers and lead to more contracts. In other words, you help the author stay employed. Numbers from preorder and first-week sales count toward rankings for the bestsellers' lists (hey, a girl can dream).
And here's the best part, when you preorder an eBook...it magically pops into your eReader on release day without you having to spend gas & time getting to a store.
So if you're going to buy THE DJINN'S DILEMMA, I'd really appreciate it if you'd buy it between NOW and the first week of November, or on my release day ~Tuesday, Nov. 1
Now available for preorder at retailers like Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, or Harlequin. :)
