N.B. I will update this blog post as more of my stories go live on Google Play!
[UPDATE: All my books are now listed on Google Play!]
I have been waiting for an opportunity to sell my books on Google Play for a couple of years now, but Google Play is currently unavailable to “new publishers”. A few years back there was a scandal involving book pirates and app scammers plaguing the site, so Google felt the best method of dealing with this was to simply shut down access to all new publishers, including legitimate self-publishers like myself.
Trust me, I would never scam you.
So I had to seek a way to put my books for sale on Google Play, especially since another retailer, All Romance eBooks, recently closed. Discussion on the Romance Divas forums mentioned a distribution platform called Pronoun was changing its exclusivity requirements. Meaning, a self-publishing author would be able to pick and choose distribution platforms, including choosing just to publish on Google Play via Pronoun.
I was smitten. I’m already publishing pretty much everywhere else (except Scribd, which no long accepts erotic romance, because…yeah, well, I got nothing). Pronoun is still figuring out how to provide the services self-published authors demand, but I’m willing to stick with them while they figure it out. In the meantime, my books are available to new readers on the Google Play platform, and I’m quite happy about that.
Plus, The Naughty Literati are also expanding distribution beyond Amazon. Some of our books are available on Google Play right now, and the rest will be available later this year.
