Leaving KDP Select (For Now)

Tomorrow is my 11th anniversary. Yay!

I’m using up my remaining “free” days as an Amazon author and giving them to you—starting tomorrow. 🙂

Hi, all! I’ve decided to experiment outside of Amazon for a while. What does this mean for you?

  1. Since I’m leaving Amazon’s exclusivity program, I’ll be able to offer my books for Nook, iTunes, and other stores (hurray)!
  2. This means I will lose the ability to offer books for free on Amazon, but that’s a pretty good trade-off.
  3. I have a few remaining “free” days left before my exclusivity contract runs out, so I figured… why not give them all to you?
  4. Tomorrow is my 11th wedding anniversary, which is a pretty big deal. Many of you may remember that my husband was deathly ill for nearly three years before they figured out what was wrong, so every anniversary I have with him is incredibly precious. To me, giving things away to celebrate that gift of life with him just makes sense.
  • The Christmas Dragon: Free from June 29 to July 2
  • Strings: Free from June 29 to July 2
  • The Sundered: Free from June 29 to July 2
  • Seed (2 short stories): Free from June 29 to July 3 (I’m not sure why that one has an extra day, but it does)

Half-Shell Prophecies will be in the program a little longer, since I added it later than the other books. When it’s time for its contract to run out, I’ll offer it to y’all, too.

Spread the word and enjoy!

Ruthanne Reid is one of those pesky fanfiction authors who made good, and thus eschews most labels. Except for being a Generation X-er (or maybe Xennial, according to some guy’s webpage), a musician who loves music but also carries a ton of baggage about it, a self-taught graphic artist who designs her own covers, a spoonie who wrestles Fibromyalgia not unlike yon Hercules and the Nemean lion, a Christian who hesitates to use the word because too many of them are crazy but Jesus is pretty great, a rabid shipper who’s too smart to lay out precisely which ships because of the wars, and an avid reader when she isn’t busy caretaking for some pretty ill folks.

You know. Unlabelable.

Currently a resident of Long Island City and a loving mommy to one current cat and numerous future ones, Ruthanne is happily married to a fellow geek who loves good stories and great games as much as she does. Between the two of them, they own a lot of things that need to be plugged in.
