This Is Your Last Chance, Kindle Unlimited Readers

To keep it short, dear readers, this is your last chance to show us if Kindle Unlimited is worth it for us. We’ve enrolled all of our novels in KU, and you can go and binge right now:

Read KU titles on Amazon US

Read KU titles on Amazon UK

That was the short version. Now for the longer one:

In case you don’t know, Kindle Unlimited is an amazing program where writers enroll their titles and can be discovered and binged by readers in it. It’s great, it really is. But, it requires exclusivity. And that’s a shame because no matter how big Amazon is, it doesn’t reach everywhere in the world. Even worse, not all people want to shop on Amazon.

It’s part of our philosophy to offer our titles to everyone worldwide. So, exclusivity has been a big no-no for us. But, we’re data-driven people. And we haven’t really tested KU for our titles yet, not in the scale we’re at now with thousands of Mythographers worldwide.

So, for this enrollment period, which is 3 months until November, you will be able to read our titles in KU. If you are a reader of this program, now is the time to binge through everything we have and tell your friends. We need to see some real action, otherwise we’re going back to being widely available. And we’re talking real action, not just a tiny bump in readers.

Convince us.

That’s all. Go. Binge. Tell your friends. And we’ll see where the stats take us.

Yeah, it doesn’t look good. Apart from a single title, the rest are lackluster. Just 2 weeks into this experiment and it’s obvious it’s not working for us. We’ll see as we get more data.

Your Shelves Are Looking a Bit… Non Bendy. Let’s Fix That

A proper reader’s shelf needs to look like this:

No, not Russian. Bendy.

If the shelf isn’t squealing under all that weight, you’re doing it wrong. That’s why we’ve brought you a massive paperback giveaway.

You can sign up here at SFF Book Bonanza.

Win 52 Sci-Fi & Fantasy paperbacks. Escape to another world for an entire year and enjoy this whopping collection of novels, from classics and bestsellers to new reads.

The giveaway starts at Nov 1 and ends at Jan 31. Sign up for a chance to win one of these epic reads:

  • The Human Division, by John Scalzi. Mother frickin awesome. I suggested that one, just read it. Fall in love with the B team.
  • Robert Jordan. Meh, TLDR.
  • Michael Crichton. Should be a good thriller.
  • Star Wars. If you’re into the EU.
  • The Book of Lost Tales. J.R.R. Tolkien. Posthumous publication. It’s worth being on your shelf. Not really dying for it, but I’d want to rifle through it’s pages. Sniff them. My preciousss.
  • Good Omens. Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Quite good. Falls flat at the climax, though. Will be made into a series starring David Tennant. Read it before it premieres. For hipsterism.
  • The Martian, Andy Weir. So fucking good.
  • Hunters of Dune. Another Dune novel? Meh.
  • Fall of Hyperion. As much as I like Dan Simmons, I can’t stand Hyperion. “We are of the cruciform. We are…” Bleh.
  • We Are Legion (We Are Bob). Dennis Taylor. SO FUCKING GOOD. Read the whole trilogy.
  • Steelheart. Brandon Sanderson. Read it. Read it. Read the whole trilogy, it’s the perfect trilogy.
  • Ready Player One. Nostalgia fueled crap. Can’t stand it.
  • The Handmaid’s Tale. Margaret Atwood. In my TBR pile, want to read it.
  • Three Body Problem. In my TBR.
  • Jim Butcher, Aeronaut’s Windlass. So. Many. Fucking. Cats. Watch as a beloved bestselling author turns into a crazy cat lady.
  • Brandon Sanderson, Way of Kings. Just read it. No, don’t mind the word count. Trust me. I’m Stormblessed.
  • Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Classic. Must have.
  • Magicians. HAS to be better than the stupid series. It has to be. Now I’m curious.
  • A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms. George R.R. Martin. No idea, haven’t gotten around to the first tomes yet.
  • The Book of Dust. Everybody seems to be talking about this. At least that’s what they do in my social media echo chamber.
  • And a bunch of other novels I don’t know about. But you can win them.

Share it with your reading buddies. Only the ones you actually like, though.

My Shelf Is Too Light Indeed

Dystopian Does Not Mean Post-Apocalyptic

Yeah, I noticed the trend and it bugs me a little. No, people, dystopian doesn’t mean post-apocalyptic. Post-ap is something after a major catastrophe, dystopian means Orwellian surveillance nightmare. You know, kinda like the God Complex Universe.

unnamed-1

Sometimes the two genres overlap like in the Hunger Games, but one does not necessarily mean the other. Anyway, here are some grim and post-apocalyptic books for you to choose from.

  • Science Fiction
  • Space Opera
  • Dystopian
  • Fantasy
  • Horror

You’ll find all that, and most importantly, you’ll find it across all major retailers. Yeah, we’ve made it the norm.

  • Amazon
  • Kobo
  • iTunes
  • Nook
  • Smashwords
  • Google Play Books

Any shop you prefer, we’re on it. First weekend of November only, 5-6 Nov. Get ready cause it’s closing in fast.
