Support Your Favorite Author, and Buy Direct From Their Website

Posted by: Linda Mooney

You may notice, when you visit an author's website, that they may list their books for sale directly from that site. There is a major reason for that -- they get the majority of the book's list price from that sale.

When you buy an ebook from a retailer such as Amazon, B&N, Apple, or Google, the author receives anywhere from 35%, 60%, or 70% (depending on the price of the book). I personally use Gumroad to sell direct from my website, and I earn 91.5% of each sale.

Yes, you read that right. I get 91.5% of each sale.

Another reason why I urge my readers to use my website first is because my new releases always show up there before they do on the other platforms. Once I upload to my website, it's instantaneous. But it can take 24 hrs, and sometimes as long as 36 hrs. or more to appear on the other sites. Readers can get their hands on my new releases faster by going through my website!

On April 4th, Gumroad will be giving 100% of every sale to the creators. Which means for every book you buy from me on that day, I will get 100% of the profit.

So, please, mark your calendar. And on Thursday, April 4th, please shop my website in support of my writing. (And because my birthday is April 2nd, it would make a really nice belated birthday present!)

Also, the next time you peruse an author's website, and you see they sell direct from it, choose to buy the book that way. It's one of the best ways you can support them!

Thank you!

The Battle Lord Saga, Book 8
Sci-Fi/Futuristic/Post-Apocalyptic Romance
by Linda Mooney
Word Count: 65.9K
$3.99 e / $9.99 p
   Things seem to have settled down among the people of Alta Novis. Normals and Mutah are working together, and families are thriving. The compound is filled to capacity and brimming with new life, but their good fortune can only last for so long.
   Winter is setting in, and the surrounding countryside is being plagued by unexpected swarms of wild animals. In addition, a horde of rats is contaminating the food supplies and destroying goods, but why? Where are all these creatures coming from? And why is it happening now? It all seems to point to one man – a sorcer who shows up at the compound and demands obedience, or else he'll bring down a devastating curse upon them all. A curse that threatens to take away all Yulen D’Jacques holds dear.
   The Battle Lord finds himself at odds between fact and fiction, but he’ll stop at nothing to save his family, as well as his dynasty. But sometimes the real enemy can’t be seen, making it an almost impossible battle to fight, much less win.
   Warning! Contains contamination, infestation, rats and possums and bears (oh, my!), revenge stew, a proposal, the start of a beautiful relationship, and a series of catastrophic losses that could include Yulen and Atty's children if the battle lord isn't able to stop a madman from fulfilling his promise.
